Rachel Joy Scott was an American student and the first victim of the Columbine High School massacre, in which eleven other students and a teacher were also murdered before both perpetrators committed suicide.
She was posthumously the subject and co-writer of several books and the inspiration for Rachel's Challenge, an international school outreach program and the most popular school assembly program in the U.S. Its aim is to advocate Scott's values, based on her life, her journals, and the contents of a two-page essay, penned a month before her murder, entitled My Ethics; My Codes of Life. The essay advocates her belief in compassion being "the greatest form of love humans have to offer."
