Episode Description

On this show Gloria and Heidi will interview Darrell Scott father of Rachael Scott who was killed in April 1999, when two teenage killers entered Columbine High School, Littleton, Colorado, and opened fire on students and teachers. In the aftermath of the killings it was learned that the killers specifically targeted Rachel Scott and mocked her Christian faith on their chilling, homemade videotapes. On this show her father talks about Rachel’s life and how he has found meaning in his daughter’s martyrdom. He and his wife are authors of “Rachel’s Tears”. 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. From the horror of the Columbine tragedy has emerged a ministry that has brought healing and hope to millions of people around the world.
