    Guess our national leaders didn't expect this, hmm?
    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

    "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
    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. This was written way
    before I knew I would be speaking here today:

    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, soul, 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 reek 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 restrictiv e 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!"

    God is love, God is peace, God is salvation --- Pray
    to Him.

    Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this
    man's speech. Please send this out to everyone you can

    He spoke at a school where I was an Asst. Principal a few years ago to all the staff and students and showed a Power Point presentation. Very moving, several hundred kids absolutely silent for over two hours. Not a dry eye in the gym.
