Session Description: Scarlett Lewis, parent of a child who was killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack, shares her personal story and the prevention and response strategies she advocates for through the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation. Planting the seed of post traumatic growth and teaching children personal responsibility, emotional intelligence and cultivating connections will give them the ability to choose love.
