LADY GAGA CHOOSES LOVE

BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION SHINES A LIGHT ON THE JESSE LEWIS CHOOSE LOVE MOVEMENT

Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement

Choosing love means having the courage to be grateful when life isn’t easy, to forgive when the person who hurt you isn’t sorry, and to step outside your own pain to help someone else. That’s the way to choose love, and the empowering lesson is that it’s a choice.

Jesse Lewis Choose Love Enrichment Program Pilot

A free classroom program teaching children how to choose love in any circumstance. The program focuses on four important character values – courage, gratitude, forgiveness and compassion – which cultivates optimism, resilience and personal responsibility.

This program was created by Educators for Educators, which means we were thinking of you when we developed it, making sure that the program is educator and student friendly.

We created a program that will have a positive impact on you, your students, and the overall classroom climate as it teaches the traits and skills that promote self-confidence, resiliency, optimism, pro-social behavior, healthy connections, and responsible decision-making.

jesse-lewisJesse’s Story 

On the morning of December 14th, 2012, Jesse McCord Lewis walked out of his house and down the driveway towards his father who was waiting to drive him to school. Along the way, Jesse stopped to write a message with his finger in the frost on his mother’s car: “I love you.” Just hours later, Jesse was gone. He was one of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

Days prior to the tragedy, Jesse wrote three words on his chalkboard at home: “Nurturing. Healing. Love.” We understand these final words as a calling from Jesse that says, “I have something for you to do for us. That’s to consciously change an angry thought into a loving one’ because it is a choice.”

The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement collaborates with professional educators to bring lasting meaning to Jesse’s murder by developing school-based educational programs to change our current culture of violence to one of safety, peace and love for everyone in our world.

This is the single guiding principle, the sole purpose and motto of our work: Teaching others to Choose Love through our CHOOSE LOVE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM™ through social, emotional, learning.
