How it all began
Rachel Joy Scott's family and friends began to pursue this campaign April 20th, 1999 in Littleton Colorado. When Rachel was the first one killed in the Columbine High School Massacre. Rachel was a kindhearted and loving person. She was known for her good deeds and her love for Jesus. She lived by five challenges to help spread compassion and kindness.
1. Look for the best in people and give three chances to do so
2. Dream Big, write your goals on paper and journal the progress
3. Choose positive influences and be surrounded by them
4. Speak with kindness, because words can hurt or heal
5. Start a chain reaction by telling someone you love them
We should do the same.
Motive for creating Rachel's Challenge
Her family's reason for creating this expedition is to put an end to bullying and violence. They hope to show people that they are loved and prevent more school shootings from occurring. Their mission statement is "Making schools safer, more connected places where bullying and violence are replaced with kindness and respect; and where learning and teaching are awakened to their fullest." Their vision is to create a "school free from harassment, bullying and violence where teachers are free to teach and students are awakened to learn."
