COLUMBINE  STUDENT’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER!!! Guess  our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell  Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the  Columbine High School shootings in Littleton , Colorado , was  invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee.  What he said to our national leaders during this special session  of Congress was painfully truthful.
They  were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every  so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the  wilderness.. The following is a portion of the  transcript: “Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain  the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my  wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that  heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not  be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.
“The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out  in the field. The villain was not the club he used, Neither was  it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was  Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart.
“In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed  at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to  represent or defend the NRA – because I don’t believe that they  are responsible for my daughter’s death.
Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent.
I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy — it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies!  Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings  best.
Your  laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty  air. You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve  outlawed simple prayer. Now gunshots fill our  classrooms, And precious children die. You  seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question  “Why?” You regulate restrictive laws, Through  legislative creed. And yet you fail to  understand, That God is what we  need! “Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind,  and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s  history. Many of our major colleges began as theological  seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs — politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.
“As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two  friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that  right! I challenge every young person in America and around  the world to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge… dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!
My daughter’s death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!”
– Darrell Scott Do what the media did not – – let the nation hear this man’s  speech. Please send this out to everyone you can.

God Bless
