After the shootings at Columbine High School, in Littleton, Colo. on April 20, 1999, Cassie Bernall’s life was cut short. Bernall was 17 years old, She lived in Littleton Colo, and was born on Nov. 6, 1981. It is an amazing book, that allows readers to see the tragedy from the other side. The book touched me on a personal level. This book helps people understand the tragedy.

About the book:

The book speaks about Bernall’s strong belief in God, ended her life. When the shooters entered Bernall’s classroom, she was hiding under a desk. As the shooters approached Bernall, they held a gun to her head, and asked her if she believed in God. Bernall had the courage to say yes. The book was written by Bernall’s mother Missy.

My thoughts and Opinion:

For a reading assignment in eighth grade, I borrowed the book from a friend. She told me it is a very powerful and sad. Once I started reading it, I was overwhelmed with the sadness written in the first words. The further I got into the book, the more I understood the pain, and what had truly happened that day.

After I finished reading the book, I understood what happened. As soon as I closed the book, it became my favorite. It showed me how to become more open with my parents, and with my religion. It taught me a lesson on how to truly be myself, even though it is not a self help book. It opened my eyes to the definition of pain.
