Choosing Hope: Moving Forward from Life's Darkest Hours

in conversation with Nicki Salcedo

7:00 p.m.   First Baptist Church of Decatur  

'Kaitlin Roig-Debellis is the first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who saved her entire class of fifteen six- and-seven-year-olds from the tragic events that took place on December 14, 2012.

Choosing Hope is a written witness to a tragedy that will never be forgotten. A gripping firsthand testament to the power of good over the power of destruction, this inspirational memoir is a story of courage, heroism, faith, and resilience--a celebration of all the people who make the choice to pass along their hope and positivity to young ones, be they parents, mentors, or teachers. There is no moving on, but there is always moving forward. And how we move forward is a choice.'
