[post a] ]Hi, this was on angelofmercy5 's blog and she wanted it passed around so I decided to post it here and to send it to everyone on my personal email list. It is a very good speech and really touched me. God Bless AMERICA!

DARRELL SCOTT TESTIMONY

Guess our national leaders didn't expect this, hmm? 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. This was written way before I knew I would be speaking here today:

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 reek 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 s eek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. "Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes-He did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America, and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA - I give to you a sincere challenge. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!

My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"

Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man's speech. Please send this out to everyone you can.

PEACE~

I am very lucky in that my son's school supports the rights of all religions. I have no idea how we get away with it and I don't care, but church services for all are held at the school on Sundays and Wed. I do get scared sending him to school because back 20 years ago we didn't have this crap going on.......we had fist fights and verbal fights. Thanks for posting this. I did get it in an email, but you posted it on line.....thanks.......

BBW this is such a powerful post. It rings true even an ocean away in England. Politicians have become too obsessed with rules, the media too obsessed with stories - the more voyeuristic the better, those who are responsible for enacting policy in our various institutions are too obsessed with political correctness.

When what all should be doing is building a culture. And that is built on values.

Thank you for sharing. As an Englishman I would almost certainly have missed it.

There is power in this post. frbnkslady lead me here and I for one appreciate it. My youngest son goes to a christian private school that support religion and prayer. I personally think it should have never been taken from schools.

I remember when we went to school we prayed every morning and there were no guns. If anything there was a fist fight and you got suspended maybe or the principal beat your ass sent you home and your mom beat your ass and carried you back to school. In my case my mom would come to the school and beat our ass in front of everyone and we were too embarrassed to mess up again.

That shooting was most definitely senseless and none of them(all school shootings) should not have happened.

I will, as this is hitting the close to the truth of the matter.I mean, if we do away with all the guns and bullets, people will use knives, then when they star using their hands then what, are we gonna chop off everyones hands just in case? I will pass this on thank you for bringing this to our attention.
