“We need to… kick start a revolution. We need to get a chain reaction going here!”
– Eric Harris, Columbine Shooter
“I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same.”
– Rachel Scott, Columbine Victim
Who inspires you?
I’ve suffered the longest bout of writers block I’ve ever suffered, and thought how better to get back into the swing of things than to share the words of someone who inspires me, who has left an impact on me and planted seeds of thinking that have never entirely gone away.
