Spotlight Champion Of Compassion: Scarlett Lewis
We are passing the Compassion Torch to Scarlett Lewis and her son Jesse Lewis as leaders of courageous compassion, shining the power of love to the world! Scarlett is the Founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement. Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to ensure that every child has access to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in their classrooms and to help facilitate this teaching within their families, schools, and communities. They do this in honor of Jesse and to spread the message he left on his family’s kitchen chalkboard shortly before he died – “Nurturing, Healing Love.”
“Although we can’t always choose what happens to us, we can always choose how to respond. Children can learn to choose a loving thought over an angry one. When a child realizes that they have the power to positively impact themselves as well as those around them, it is empowering and perpetuates their positive actions and interactions.” –Scarlett Lewis, Founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ and Jesse’s mother

“Scarlett Lewis has faced the ultimate darkness. She has shared, from a deep place of truth within, the agony of losing her Jesse at such a tender age. she has shared her very personal journey back to living and teaching how to become instruments of love…
Her message is a reflection of Jesse’s life. It is what I humbly attempt to live and teach. Where there is hatred, change the thought. Where there is no love, we must put love, and then surely we will find love.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
