Item description for Chain Reaction: A Call to Compassionate Revolution by Darrell Scott & Steve Rabey...

Overview
In a personal creed she wrote one month before her death, Rachel Scott 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. Now her father is carrying on her crusade by challenging people of all ages to commit themselves to creating a revolution of compassion that can impact our troubled world.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chain Reaction A Call To Compassionate Revolution?

A SURE READ FOR EVERYONE  Apr 14, 2008
This book is so inspiring....I would like to see this book in all schools as a class read...everyone would get so much out of this...If only one would start the chain reaction more would be sure to follow....
 
Inspirational but Gloomy  Oct 10, 2005
I enjoyed this book overall but I would prefer it if there was less about the massacre and more about improving the world. I know this is Rachel's vision and that she was KILLED in Columbine but there are many books about what happened and it sort of dampened my spirit when I read repeatedly about what Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold did. Personally I don't know whether this has inspired me to do more for the world because I was already that way inclined and I sought out books like this deliberately to give me ideas.

I know it is sad that Rachel died but surely it would have been better to celebrate her life instead of dwelling on her death which it seems the book is doing. I believe she was a very special person and I'm grateful that there are other teenagers in the world trying to improve it because sometimes I feel as if I'm the only one and in that way this book was very helpful to me.
 
Pretty Good Book  Nov 16, 2002
I thought that that the "Chain Reaction" book(which expresses and explains Rachel's beliefs and ideals) is a pretty good book, however the reason why I gave this book 4 stars is because I don't agree with what Rachel's father said about the Harrises and Klebolds and their households, apparently, not being so "cozy" and I thought that it was disingenious for him to suggest something like this when he doesn't know their home life anymore that I do.
 
cheesy, sentimental garbage  Jan 26, 2002
it's so odd that the very people who were unfortunate enough to have been touched by this horrendous event are precisely the ones who seem so radically and completely divorced from the brutal and unimaginable reality of what actually happened. it's all fine and nice to write a book called "Compassionate Revolution" and pretend that that's doing something, but let's keep in mind what happened. two kids walked into a school library and shot 13 other kids to death, then threw some bombs, shot at cops, and blew their heads off. glorifying the kids who happened to be unfortunate enough to be sitting in the library doesn't change the fact that there are probably 2 billion eric harris and dylan klebolds out there right now, screaming inwardly while their repugnant parents and vicious peers choose to ignore them while every once in awhile taking the trouble to put them down and abuse them. lay off the falsehood and face the reality.
 
You can change the world!  Aug 15, 2001
Every teen and parent should read this book. It is about making a difference in the lives of those we love and those we meet each new day. Read this now and begin the "Chain Reaction"!
