As the nation prepares to recognize Saturday's one year anniversary of the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes Scarlett Lewis, a mother of one of the 20 children killed in the Connecticut massacre.
Joining Piers Morgan for an inspiring face to face interview, tonight Lewis speaks of finding a message her son Jesse [Lewis] had left, and using the words as a source of strength, and purpose:
"I saw a note that Jesse had written on our kitchen chalkboard, and it said 'nurturing, healing, love.' It was phonetically spelled, and in six-year-old little hand-writing, but the message was incredibly clear to me," explains an entirely composed Lewis. "It was a message of comfort for his family and friends, but also a message of inspiration for the world."
An interpretation of Jesse's prophetic chalkboard note serves as the cover, and title, of his mom's book, a volume she penned as both a way of honoring and remembering her youngest child:
"He was a bundle of energy. And always happy, always helpful, his energy would just completely fill up a room," she tells the host. "He did have the sensitive and loving side as well. The message that's actually on his tombstone, is 'Have a lot of Fun.'"
For the full interview with Jesse Lewis' mother tune in to CNN at 9 p.m., and to hear Jesse's father – Neil Heslin – reveal how he plans to spend the upcoming Christmas holiday, his second without Jesse, check out this recent "Piers Morgan Live" interview.
