Elizabeth Lesser to Speak in Newtown, Connecticut

Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser and Episcopalian priest Reverent Ed Bacon will present a talk, Finding Your Invincible Summer, on May 9 at Newtown Middle School. The talk will help support the healing of a community torn apart by the deadly shooting of December 14, 2012. Drawing from a quote from Albert Camus, “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer,” Lesser and Bacon will offer hope that the community can move on in a way that honors the victims, the grieving process, and the promise of the future. The event is organized by the now-nationwide group Sandy Hook Promise, founded by Newtown friends and neighbors to heal and be part of the conversation about violence in America. The talk begins at 7:00 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
