"For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." - Philippians 1:21
Cassie Bernall, A true heroe to the world, And a name that peaks out to Christians. Some consider her a saint, Others consider her the role model to shape themselves to be like.
Cassie was helpless.. With a gun to her head, With a question that would determine her living or dieing. A question that would sadden others.. Above all.. SHE SAID YES.
I am a 15 year old student attending Rogers High School in Spokane, WA. The
Columbine tragedy has opened my eyes to new insight from the world. Hating
someone due to race is just morally and ethically wrong, but it is fixable.
To all of those people out there who have prejudices or even just a grudge,
solve it now, before it explodes into a bigger isssue. Through the
activities that I participate in, I was taught values that you have to want
to learn. Band gives you dicipline, as well as a way to express your
emotions. Track is just a way to stay healthy, as well as a way to express
how you feel..get rid of anger, and so on. To sum it up, Columbine can teach
us all just what prejudices can lead to. Don't let them. Talk, open up, and
don't be afraid of who you are, and what you have to offer. Remember Cassie,
she said yes.
