“We are thrilled to be bringing Scarlett Lewis to our community to share her journey and encourage all of us to Choose Love,” said Jim Downs, CEO of the Hockomock Area YMCA.
Lewis will share her journey in overcoming tragedy, and encourage everyone to Choose Love as a response to adversity and challenges. Lewis will share her inspiring story journey to become part of the solution in making the world a safer and more peaceful place after her son’s death at Sandy Hook in 2012. She is a world-renowned speaker and leading advocate for character social emotional development
“I decided to be part of the solution to the issues that we’re seeing in our society—and that also caused the tragedy. I created programs that teach children and adults how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships,“ said Lewis. “If we can teach our children that they have the power to choose a loving thought over an angry thought, we can create a more peaceful world.”
