Young Life Gone, Yet Still Touches the World

Last week I went with a friend to see a marvelous program that was established out of the Columbine tragedy where 12 students and one extraordinary teacher were shot to death. The first one killed was Rachel Joy Scott who was eating lunch outside the school with a friend. Rachel was a mostly normal teenager who loved life, people, and her God. She exemplified kindness and compassion. 

There was a day when she saw 2 jocks picking on a young man with disabilities, knocking books out of his hands and throwing him up against the lockers. She was so angry, little Rachel ran up and stood between the boy and the bullies, shook her fist in their faces and said , “if you touch him one more time, you’ll have to fight me.” They turned around and walked off. Rachel helped the young man and asked all her friends to befriend him every day talking to him and encouraging him.



Rachel would make friends with the lonely kids, the new kids having a hard time fitting in, the imperfect in features kid~ anyone that she noticed was hurting. At her funeral many fellow students got up and testified how she had helped them and some admitted they were ready to commit suicide until she came along and shared her love and compassion with them. 




This beautiful little teenager had a gift from God. She knew things most do not. This prophetic picture was drawn by Rachel in her class the day she died. She told her friends she would die young, and from this beautiful child’s diaries, programs grew. They were begun by her Mom and Dad and stepmom . One program called Rachel’s Challenge has spread all over the world. It is an amazing program that changes kids' lives. It brings the love and compassion of Rachel’s heart into the very atmosphere of a school. Please check it out for yourself for your school connections! Also be watching for the movie that her Mom has been working on about Rachel’s life.




My friends, my heart is filled with compassion for the lonely kids who are going through school these days bullied and shunned with broken hearts and wounded souls. I know this program has aborted at least 150 teen suicides. Lord, I lift up our children to You today, asking for Your love and compassion to surround them and show them Your loving way out of their pain. Send a Rachel to every school Lord!
