Students, teachers and parents in the Madison Local Schools District on Wednesday experienced one of this country's largest character development programs known as Rachel's Challenge. The high school gymnasium was the setting for the presentation titled "Overcoming Bullying with Kindness." Speaker Torski Dobson-Arnold shared the powerful story of Rachel Joy Scott, the first victim killed in the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Scott had one simple theory that one act of kindness could change the world. Rachel's Challenge was created to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying and negativity with acts of kindness and respect. "Rachel was a very kind girl who simply wanted to change the world by inspiring others to be kind and so compassion. Rachel's Challenge is empowering people to take care of those they love and care about most, family, friends, sisters and brothers," Dobson-Arnold said. "Rachel's Challenge encompasses five challenges, 1. Dream Big; 2. Start a chain reaction; 3. Choose positive influences; 4. Look for the best in others and 5. Eliminate prejudice in their lives," Dobson-Arnold said. At the end of the presentation those in attendance were asked to sign a banner pledging their commitment to start a chain reaction of acts of kindness and compassion. "We wanted to offer our students something to help them deal with the negativity and other things teenagers are facing including bullying," Madison Comprehensive High School, principal, Rob Peterson said. Since it's inception more than 19 million people have heard Rachel's Challenge, at least eight school shootings have been prevented and over 500 suicides have been averted.
