Bianca A. Santos,
The Columbine Massacre of April 20, 1999 completely redefined America's view of the lives of high school students. Drawn straight from Columbine victim Rachel Joy Scott's words and journal entries, through the insight of her mother, Beth Nimmo, it is the true story of a high school student whose compassionate, caring faith caused her to reach out to fellow students including her killers who made her a target of their murderous plan.Written by
Where were you when Columbine happened? I remember it well. I was at science camp (Lake Hume, CA) with about 20 of my Middle school students in the cafeteria surrounded by hundreds of other students and faculty from all over California. Needless to say, the whole place sobered up in a hurry.
But little did I know that it would take 18 years for me to realize the true significance of that event. That realization came when I watched this movie. The story of Rachel Scott is an amazing testimony of how God can take a horrific event and use it to reach millions of people with the gospel. It is interesting to note that her life has touched 22 million people; exactly twice as many as Hitler killed. Watch the movie to see the contrast between Hitler's and therefore Eric and Dylan's idea and Jesus and Rachel's idea of making the world a better place.
It is also an amazing testimony of how God prepared Rachel for the way she would glorify Him. Friends, He is doing this with all of us who follow him. If you want a film that inspires and encourages you; you can't do much better than this one.
I highly recommend this movie as one of the best Christian movies out there. The divide you see between the critics and the general audience is telling. Many of us have learned to discount the critics through the years realizing that they cannot be trusted to give a proper assessment. Also, this story is itself an example of how the secular media gets it so wrong most of the time simply because they have no spiritual discernment and work for bosses that are often hostile to the Christian worldview.
On a technical note: In my opinion, this movie is another example of how Christian movies are getting better and better.
