Choose Love to Cope with COVID-19

After I endured a life-changing personal tragedy -- losing my six-year-old son in the Sandy Hook School tragedy -- I founded the nonprofit Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement to address mental health issues and help others find strength and positivity in life.  

Through Choose Love, I provide a solution that will take children from whatever level of personal  development they are in and provide them with the skills, tools, and awareness they need to advance so they can connect with each other; have healthy meaningful relationships; manage their emotions; become resilient; make responsible decisions; and   so much more. In this unprecedented time in history, Choose Love offers social and emotional learning and character development that helps children thrive socially, emotionally, and mentally. 

In direct response to COVID-19, Choose Love has created numerous free resources to help children and adults deal with the stress and anxiety of sheltering-in-place and dealing with the unknown.  All are available for FREE on our website:

  • Parents can go to our website and watch 2 weeks of Free online Choose Love lessons that include : how to use the Choose Love formula; short videos; downloadable activities; interactive discussions; suggested projects, such as writing inspiring words with chalk on your driveway/road; creating artwork with positive word and hanging them in your window for people walking by to see.
  • Scott Zimmerman is the Director of Social and Emotional Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Austin, Texas. He has been recording Choose Love lessons led by students and is offering them for all to use during this time.
