Since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December, the mother of one young victim says she's managed to achieve something that many would find impossible: forgiveness. Scarlet Lewis describes how she and her older son JT have learned to live with the loss of 7-year-old Jesse in a new book, which is named after a message Jesse scrawled on a family chalkboard before he died: Nurturing Healing Love. The importance of forgiveness was reinforced for the Lewis family by a connection with an unlikely source: orphans of the Rwandan genocide.
