Choosing Hope: A Reading with Robin Gaby Fisher

Oct 31, 2015 01:40PM
Written by Kaitlin Roig DeBellis with Robin Gaby Fisher, Choosing Hope: Moving Forward from Life’s Darkest Hours is a first grade teacher’s written witness to the tragic 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It is a gripping firsthand testament to the power of good over the power of destruction and an inspirational story of one brave young teacher’s courage, heroism, faith and resilience in the face of great adversity. Come to Yoga Central on Sunday, November 8 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. to listen to a free reading by the book’s coauthor.

Featured in People Magazine, Choosing Hope celebrates everyone who makes the choice to pass along their hope and positivity to young ones—parents, mentors and especially teachers. Ultimately, it is an uplifting story of love and hope.

Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis explains, “Although now I have witnessed the worst of mankind, instead of feeling bitter or regretful I have chosen to embrace gratitude. I believe in the power of kindness, the influence of educators and mentors, faith and God, and most of all I believe in humanity. Bad things happen to all of us, things that test us and impact us and change us, but it is not those moments that define us. It is how we choose to react to them that does.”

Robin Gaby Fisher is a New York Times bestselling author of eight nonfiction books. She is a two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing and the recipient of a shared Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News.
