The Columbine tragedy in April 1999 pierced the heart of our country. In December 1999, we learned that the teenage killers specifically targeted Rachel Scott and mocked her Christian faith on their chilling, homemade videotapes. Rachel Scott died for her faith. Now her parents talk about Rachel's life and how they have found meaning in their daughter's martyrdom in the aftermath of the school shooting. Rachel's Tears comes from a heartfelt need to celebrate this young girl's life, to work through the grief and the questions of a nation, and to comfort those who have been touched by violence in our schools today. Using excerpts and drawings from Rachel's own journals, her parents offer a spiritual perspective on the Columbine tragedy and provide a vision of hope for preventing youth violence across the nation.

A book first read when I was 12 and revisited now in my 20s. Has the same impact, loved it then and breezed thru it now. I have always felt the same way the authors do about gun control. The weapon is the heart. Change people's hearts, change people's actions. Rachel was a lovely person and like her mum said, completely fulfilled her purpose in her 17 years of life. God led her to her purpose, and showed her a glimpse of the worldwide positive ramifications of her death (and the others'). Loved the journal entries and her personal questions and insights. The book has been updated to include a brand new interview section which was interesting. Read this book, either buy or borrow from a library. I finally bought it.
