Greenfield High School will present Rachel’s Challenge, a program aimed at promoting treating people with kindness and respect through the words of a Columbine High School tragedy victim next month.
The program, which is free to the public, tells the inspiring story of Rachel Scott, whose example of kindness and acceptance was brought to light when she became the first victim in the Columbine shooting in 1999.
Conveyed through stories from Rachel’s life and writings, Rachel’s Challenge shows the profound positive impact that people can have on others. Rachel’s Challenge demonstrates to the listener the power of deliberately reaching out in word and action to others what Rachel called “a chain reaction of kindness and compassion."
Rachel’s challenge was to “Look for the best in others. Treat others the way you would want to be treated. Choose positive influences. Speak words of kindness. Forgive yourself and others.”
Rachel’s Challenge will be presented at the high school's performing arts center, 4800 S. 60th St., on Nov. 13, to freshmen and sophomores from 8-9 a.m. and to juniors and seniors from 9:30-10:30 a.m. The community event will take place from 7-8 p.m.
