ACTOR/ACTIVIST LEVAR BURTON SHARES W/ PARENTS IDEAS FOR TALKING TO THEIR KIDS ABOUT AURORA

LeVar Burton, host of READING RAINBOW, believes that parents should never shield away from tough subjects, as our focus are children.  The Aurora violence was beyond our imagination.   READING RAINBOW is much more than a television show or an APP, it is a beloved and trusted channel for us to speak to people and it is our responsibility to reach children in these powerful and terrifying times.  LeVar’s message gives families a sense of calm helping us all believe that “we can get through this.”

LeVar felt compelled to write this video and film it in central park for children and families everywhere to help them communicate to their children about this senseless act of violence that tore apart mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, children and parents.
