Rachel Scott was the first student shot and killed at Columbine High School in 1999. This is what she wanted: kindness and compassion.
Through her writings and her actions, she taught us that thoughts and words alone are not enough; we must act our kindness and compassion. Kindness and compassion without action is pointless.
Rachel went out of her way to befriend fellow students who were bullied, shunned, and cast aside. That’s kindness and compassion in action.
What is it you can do today, and every day, that puts kindness and compassion into action?
