This book was in a box of books sent to me by a friend of a friend. I'm not sure I would have read it if it hadn't been in that box of books.

The message within the pages is a good one--be a friend to those that are considered outcasts. See through their outer messages and let them know you care. You never know that the one thing you do that you don't think anything of, might be the one thing that means everything to the other person.

However, Rachel Scott's Code is repeated in almost every chapter, as if we couldn't remember it, and the cynic in me wonders how much Darrell Scott wanted to gain from the "spotlight" created by the tragedy that included his daughter's death.

Am I glad I read the book? Yes. Do I think that the world would be a better place if more people followed Rachel's code? Yes. ( )

Through the death of Columbine martyr, Rachael Scott, the author shows you how Rachael's life and tragic death have caused a chain reaction of good. When Rachael performed any act of love due to her strong commitment to Jesus, it created a ripple effect of kindness and love that will probably never end. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is dedicated to Rachel Joy Scott. May her memory remain alive through the chain reaction she started by acts of kindness. Rachel, I love you.
First words
Merely mention the word Columbine in a conversation and the reaction you get demonstrates that the Denver area high school where my daughter and eleven other students and one teacher were killed has unfortunately become the most famous high school in the world.
Quotations
Your goal in life should not be based on trying to copy what other people are doing. You have our own role to play and your own skills to work with.
To forgive somebody is to say one way or another, "You have done something unspeakable, and by all rights I should call it quits between us. Both my pride and my principles demand no less. However, although I make no guarantees that I will be able to forget what you've done and though we may both carry the scars for life, I refuse to let it stand between us." (quoting Frederick Buechner from "Wishful Thinking")
We pay dentists huge amounts of money to drill our teeth and make holes in them and put foreign objects in them and pull them, all of which is torture. But we know that the pain is for our own good.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785266801, Paperback)

Rachel Scott and her killer Eric Harris both talked about starting a "chain reaction." Eric used violence to kill and destroy at Columbine High School. But Rachel chose another path. In a personal creed she wrote one month before her death in the Columbine tragedy, she explained her conviction that if one person goes out of his or her way to show compassion, it will start a world-changing chain reaction of kindness.

For Rachel, this was a solemn calling. And now her father, Darrell Scott, is carrying on her crusade by challenging people of all ages to commit themselves to creating a revolution of compassion that can make a real difference in our troubled world. Chain Reaction spells out this challenge in compelling detail, providing moving examples of practical compassion and giving illustrations from Rachel's life and journals.
