Review for Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement , Newtown, CT, USA
Dear Great Non-Profits,
I met Scarlett Lewis four years ago, when I was making a documentary called " Peace be with you ." The documentary was about people making a difference for peace during their lives. I had heard of Scarlett through a friend.
So, I called her up and she said sure, please come over and shoot an interview for the documentary. I met her at a local diner, and I found her to be extraordinary.
On the drive back I wondered about Scarlett.
I had no problem with a person (no less a mother ) after losing a child, going into their bedroom and staying for good. It's only natural. After a huge sting our defense is to go down and in. And Scarlett's sting was life threatening. How did she forgive the shooter?
No one would blame her for staying in bed. They would say, " The tragedy broke her. She went down and in."
But Scarlett did not go down and in. She went up and out! And she has been and unending unbending unchanging force to let the world know a better way.
The answer is that she practices her curriculum. ( Courage, Gratitude, Forgiveness and Compassion with Action.)
During the making of two more documentaries ( about immigration justice )
I kept thinking that the choose love method could soften hearts. I wanted my documentary to show that in life we will all get stung, yet there is a way to heal. And this movement has the method!
There is a way.
It is a method ground in science.
Proven by people's lives.
In over 100 countries!
I am honored to bring the Choose Love documentary to fruition.
I want it to open up the world's heart.
