I’m Not Ashamed
Her faith would touch the world. Oct. 21, 2016 USA 112 Min. PG-13
Based on the inspiring and powerful true story and journal entries of Rachel Joy Scott- the first student killed in the Columbine high school shooting in 1999.
The Columbine High School Massacre was one of the most important impacts of our nation and our school systems for a multitude of reasons. A rather common but nonetheless heartbreaking event, the tragic murders of twelve people left many hearts broken and spirits withered. Families, friends, and all people nationwide watch their TVs in shock and sorrow, as they hear the gunshots and see the tears flowing in young teenager’s eyes. Most heartbreaking however was the fact that it wasn’t some foreign terrorist attack nor some natural fire, but rather at the helm of two psychologically troubled teenagers who wanted revenge. This in particular led a huge impact in our society, such as a push to more weapons security as well as multiple campaigns on Anti-Bullying and Mental Health counseling. But a lot of these changes were hinged on the biggest question of the time – “why? Why did they do this?” Multiple claims were thrown into discussion but barely any of them were concrete: “It’s the videogames!”, says one. “It’s the bullies!” says another. “Maybe it’s that pesky Marilyn Manson!”, says that fellow over yonder. Even to this day, these perceptions on the promotion of terrorism lingered as many people desperately wished for an answer to this tragedy.
