This review is from: Rachels Tears: 10th Anniversary Edition: The Spiritual Journey of Columbine Martyr Rachel Scott (Paperback)A 17-year old girl has changed the world and you may not even know her name. She was the first victim of the Columbine school shooting tragedy. Her funeral was broadcast on CNN with the largest viewing audience than any other broadcast, including Princess Di's funeral. She was a sister, a student, and an actress. But more importantly, she was deeply connected to God's will for her life. She predicted her life to be short but full of impact. She was right. Rachel Joy Scott continues to live through the message she carried in her daily living. And the book her parents wrote about her faith is an important read for all. Beginning with a heart wrenching dedication to each buried victim, the reader is given a glimpse into the aftermath for the unburied victims as well. Rachel's parents relate their experiences and thoughts of Rachel, but also include excerpts from her journals, and conversations Rachel had with her peers. Interestingly, her parents learned much more of her life after she died: how intimately passionate she was about sharing her faith, how she cared for the outcasts at school, how she struggled with typical teenage banes. This book has some bold lessons for all to learn, including forgiveness of the two murderers, who were no more than boys themselves. It is a testament of God's faithfulness to help you overcome whatever obstacle you face. It is a must-read for any young adult and inspires delicate yet firm belief in God's purpose. I have heard her father and sister speak about her life and her challenge to us all to do just one good deed each day. This printed account is just as powerful. It is the life of Rachel Joy Scott. Now you know her name. Now read her story.
