A Special Message
April 1, 2000


It’s April again. The anniversary of the tragedy at Columbine will be here in just a few weeks. I have some challenges for you as the time grows near.

Pray for peace. There is a lot of fear of “copy cat” shootings on April 20. Please pray that none of these fears will be reality. Pray for peace in our schools, and pray that fears would be calmed.

Pray for the students at Columbine and the friends and families of the victims. It won’t be an easy time for them. Pray for peace and comfort for thm.

Pray that the media will handle the situation with dignity and tact. Pray that any media coverage would be used to encourage peace in our country and comfort for the hurting.

Take advantage of this opportunity to raise awareness in your school and community about teen violence. Decide that you will be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
