COLUMBINE STUDENT'S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER!!
Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. 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:
"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.
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, mind, 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 wreak 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 restrictive laws.

God seems to be like a Labor Union...he seems to be incapable of doing or preventing anything , without the full support of ALL his Followers, even the slaughter of 20 Little Children in their Classrooms.

But the Devil, on the other hand, seems to be like a Powerful Company than can do anything he wants, and control anybody he wants, and get them to do any Evil action that he wants them to do.

Just an observation and something to think about!

That is some of the stupidest things for someone to say. That things like this happens because people don't have God in their lives. Bad shit happens to both good and bad people. Good shit happens to both good and bad people. It is an inevitable part of life. Not even the "word" of this fairy-tale, fantasy "God" has the power to make people fear and refrain from doing bad shit. I hate the ignorance of people who hides behind the word God. Like some magical shit is going to happen because you use God's name.
I actually stumbled across these quotes a few days ago. A very wise person, Jiddu Krishnamurti, in our current times says these simple logical phrases/quotes:
Your belief in God is merely an escape from your monotonous, stupid and cruel life.
and
The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.
He is obviously just a scorned person looking for someone or something to blame. To blame other than his own self because he couldn't protect his daughter from the inevitable. He feels guilty. And to make himself feel better about what has happened he emotionally attacked people who have nothing to do with what happened to his daughter. He can't see straight or clearly. He only see fake shit from his fantasy world. Yeah he's still hurt for his loss. I get that. But he needs to get out of la-la land.
Who made guns? Humans did. They didn't just drop from the sky. You don't see monkeys making weapons to kill their own kind, or any animal making weapons to kill off their own kind. We, humans, have a desire to kill our own kind with all the weapons we created. Someone with a desire to kill their own kind, with the choice of a gun, had killed his daughter. People who don't have the desire to kill don't own weapons, and they are ashamed to be a human, ashamed to have relations with fellow humans who have a potential to kill. As you see, he spoke about him not owning a gun, that was one of the first things he said. That was his way of putting himself above other people who have weapons.
He acts like his daughter is the first person to ever be murdered. Bad shit like that happens every day and has been happening like that centuries before he was born. I hate other people's ignorance.

I have had some fucked up things in my life and I don't think that I should blame other people and just go on a shooting rampage because someone done me wrong. Maybe we need to start testing everyone for being psychotic.
If we take away the guns so this doesn't happen are we going to take away everyone's hands? An insane person can just as easily kill with their hands. Maybe, they don't understand that with everything that's in the world these days they still can make bombs with nuts and bolts that will take out a lot of people. How many times must they prove that or the fact. That people can still go psyco with just a knife so nobody thinks we need to put the blame where it needs to be?
Not on the government for letting us keep our rights to bare arms to protect ourselves from the weirdo's in the world. Stand up for yourselves and grow up and start defending yourself. The police, military, and government cannot always be there to defend and protect you. So until we get rid of the crazies and out there stop blaming others for your problems start defending yourselves.

Wow sounds like some people should just shut their mouths if they have nothing nice to say. Another thing we are lacking in America. And its sad that people can't use regular words to express their feelings, but use foul language to get their points across. God may not be real, but it DOES in fact give people the urge to do good, to do better. It DOES in fact put a little fear in people. The fear of going to hell for committing sins or just doing evil, selfish, and terrible things. What is so wrong about believing in a higher power if it helps society live together in peace? It's like letting a child believe in Santa Clause so they'll be on their best behavior. We know Santa isn't real but we allow it and celebrate the holiday every year. It saddens me that children do not say the pledge of allegiance in the mornings anymore. That no one should speak of God. That the president of the United States can take down the American flag in the office. I could keep going. Can we even call ourselves the UNITED States anymore? How UNITED are we? America is going to hell...and not hell that people fear after death, for those of you who believe, but hell HERE on Earth. WE are creating the hell.

For the person slaughtering and belittling the words of this heartbroken father...the very simplistic quote from Jiddu is a lame attempt to undermine many people's beliefs. God is not simply Christianity's version of the Most High or a picture of a white Jesus. God is not someone you have to communicate through a mediator. God is Allah. God is Jesus. God is Buddha. God is your neighbor. Even you yourself, who's completely tarnished and degraded the teachings that humanity has lived by for thousands of years is a piece of God. Seeds of negativity have been planted in you and you have nurtured a poisonous, cancerous mentality which has now flourished abundantly in your mind. It is now your individual and personal decision to chop down the thought trees of negativity which have been planted, use it as compost, and begin a new frame of thought. At the very least be open to new frame of thought or to a different frame of thought and do not degrade another's belief system. At the very least you should respect and admire someone who believes in something higher than them self. Soak it in...
Yes he is emotionally attacking the subgroup of people he believe held underlying responsibility for the tragic events this started with Columbine. That's simply natural considering his daughter has passed in a very somewhat unique way. As a father you hold of bond with your child that would make you naturally want to emotionally attack somebody or a group of people that is held accountable. Seeing as though he cannot legally physically attack a subgroup of people, emotionally attacking and verbally attacking is his right an obligation to his daughter. I live in Atlanta and we just had a middle school shooting this week so the problem is continuing to increase and persist.
Please do not get wisdom misconstrued and confused with very opinionated ignorance. One can be very articulately opinionated and still be considered very ignorant. A true indication of fear, selfishness, and ignorance is the fact that some people are naive enough to truly believe they are existing because they were meant to be here because of their own doing or because we came from Darwin's theory of evolving from monkeys...righhht...and because we don't see monkeys running around creating in inventing weapons of mass destruction should lead you to automatically cancel out the role of evolution. While taking what youve said, half of your entire theory is now proven wrong and very questionable. You must reflect on this truly.
