Mother of murdered Sandy Hook schoolboy funds Kingstanding bleed control kits
by Adam Smith
The inspirational American mother of a boy murdered in the Sandy Hook school massacre in 2012 has funded ten new bleed control kits for Kingstanding…
Scarlett believes love is the key to preventing mass murders and every child should be taught about emotions, connections, and relationships.
President Barack Obama was deeply upset by the Sandy Hook massacre and even addressed the nation from the school days after the tragedy. He failed in his bid to tighten gun laws but introduced Scarlett to his sister, a professor who helped launch the foundation.
Kingstanding’s first bleed control kit was installed in October but another ten are needed for the area to be covered.
When Scarlett heard about deadly consequences of knife crime in Birmingham, she offered to purchase ten new kits, immediately.
“I totally understand the concept of zero responders and how bleed control kits can save lives. It took more than seven minutes for emergency services to get to Jesse’s school and a bleed control kit could have saved lives,” she said.
Bishop Desmond Jadoo and Majid Khan, from Yes2Life – a Birmingham based group ‘campaigning against the effects of gun & knife crime’, were so impressed by Scarlett’s humanity they volunteered to be UK ambassadors for her Choose Love Movement.
Bishop Jaddoo said: “For a mother to forgive the killer of her six-year-old son, choose love and dedicate her life to saving lives is incredibly inspiring and because of her generosity lives will be saved in Kingstanding.”
