Rachel Joy Scott
Rachel was the first victim in the Columbine shooting. She believed she could have an impact on the world and that she would die young. Which she did. She loved life and wanted to become better every day. She is role model to many.
April 20, 1999
Rachel made this drawing the day she died and the shooters attacked:
The 13 tears represent the 13 people who lost their life's in the shooting.
Rachel challenged everyone who reads her story to try and defeat these 3 challenges:
Introduce new people and be nice to them
Reach out to disadvantaged people
Reach out to those being bullied
I challenge YOU to take Rachel's challenge!
Rachel Helped Others
She stood up for those being bullied and made sure every one was being treated right. She once saved a mans life just because he was being bullied and was about to kill himself which she didn't know and she still stood up for him. she also went and sat with others at lunch if they were alone.
Rachel spoke up for herself and for others!
"I won't be labeled as average."
Some of Rachel's Quotes
"Compassion is the greatest form of love humans have to offer."
"Don't let your character change color with your environment. Find out who you are and let it stay its true color."
Rachel was born on August 5, 1981. Her short life consisted of hope, believing, and never giving up on God even in the face of death. She believed she would touch millions of peoples lives. On the 20 of April, 1999, the killers asked her if she still believed in God. She said yes and they killed her. She kept journals telling us that she would impact the world. If she had not done that we wouldn't think twice about this girls life which i think is really sad. Her death will forever be remembered and her belief carried on. As her dad wrote on her coffin, "Your death will NOT be in vain. Sleep tight little angel.".
Rachel believed every one was created equal. she spoke against prejudges.
