Day 20- A song you listen to when you are angry.
I chose Für Elise by Beethoven. I love this piece! I always have, and I just get on the computer, chillax, and listen to this song when I'm frustrated or angry.
Now, for the important part of the day. Today is the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. Don't know what that is? Well, I'll tell you. Or, of course you could google or youtube it. It happened 11 years ago, on a Tuesday like this in Littleton, Colorado. Columbine High School is a very good school, and no one would imagine something would happen like that there. 2 high school boys went on a shooting spree, killing 13 people(including 1 teacher) and injuring 23 people. No one expected those 2 boys to do it, either. One of the people they killed was Cassie Bernall. Her mother wrote a book about Cassie called "She Said Yes." Wondering where the title of this book came from? RIght before Cassie was killed in the school library, one of the men asked her if she believed in God. She said yes, and then they shot her in the head. She was a believer in God, but she wasn't always that way. She got into the wrong crowd at a different school, and made some bad decisions. She went through 2 years of fighting with her parents and this bad crowd. She finally started going to a youth group and her parents made her move to a private school. She met some good friends, and became surly, but slowly, better, and she was a nice person. She always thought she would slip away from Christ, but she never did, not even in the minute of her death. People call her a martyr.
This is the book. ^ We're reading it in literature class, and that's how I know all of this information.
There's also a movie called "Dawn Anna" but it has nothing to do with Cassie, and it isn't even based on any of the Columbine events until the very end of the movie.
Just thought I might remind you guys of this, and if you didn't know about it, tell me!
Have a wonderful day.
