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.
