      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
      transcript:

      Quote:
      "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. 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.
