Description: Stories are powerful. We tell the story of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine school shootings. Rachel was just an ordinary teenager in many ways; but she believed that kindness could change the world. She wrote about it, talked about it – and acted on it. After her death, stories emerged of the little things Rachel had done that had made a big difference in the lives of those around her.
Starting with her example, we show what kindness looks like; what it feels like. We teach simple and easy ways to reach out and connect to each other emotionally. We model positive behavior that is compassionate and empathetic. Some call it social emotional learning. We call it life-changing.
Because when we can see it, we can create it. It’s amazing how far a little kindness can go.
