Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘I'm Not Ashamed’ is the story of Columbine victim, Rachel Joy Scott. She was not ashamed to share her faith in Jesus, even to her killers. The Columbine Massacre of April 20, 1999 completely redefined America's view of the life of high school students. The I'M NOT ASHAMED film is the ‘story inside the story.’ Drawn straight from Rachel Joy Scott's words, through the insight of her mother, Beth Nimmo, it is the story of a high school student whose compassionate, caring faith caused her to reach out to fellow students including her killers and made her a target of their murderous plan.
‘I’ve always been drawn to hands. I think it’s because it’s the way we touch people,’ Columbine High School student Rachel Joy Scott wrote in her journal. ‘If one person could go out of their way to show compassion, it could start a chain reaction.’
Growing up, Rachel knew the love of God, but she wasn’t always ready to receive it. At times her faith was on fire … and at other times it was at odds with her everyday life.
As she wrote in her journal: ‘I don’t understand why having a walk with God is so hard for me. I’m so weak. At school, with friends, at work.’
Having reached a breaking point when her relationship with a non-believing boyfriend ended, Rachel found inspiration from her ‘big brother’—a former homeless teen she helped lead to Christ.
After praying, ‘Father, use my life to touch the world and let your light shine through me,’ her renewed commitment to Jesus played out compassionately and powerfully at her high school … and around the world.
Pure Flix presents I’M NOT ASHAMED, the inspiring true story of Rachel Joy Scott at Columbine High School. When her hopes and dreams seemed to end, God was just getting started. Based on Rachel’s honest and heartfelt journals, I’M NOT ASHAMED is a hope-filled reminder that when we put our lives in God’s hands, we can make a world of difference.”
