There are moments in life that are never forgotten…not only times of great celebration but also times of unspeakable tragedy. For many of us, April 20, 1999 was one of those defining moments. On that day, two young men with evil intent entered Columbine High School, spreading terror, stealing innocence, shattering lives, and leaving behind families and friends to grapple with its aftermath and a nation to mourn.
In the days, weeks and months that followed, other stories emerged as well: stories of strength, sacrifice, kindness, compassion and courage. And on October 21st, Pure Flix brings to the screen one of those stories in our latest theatrical release, I’m Not Ashamed.
Based on the inspiring true story of Rachel Joy Scott, and adapted from her personal journals, this film portrays a young woman who faces trials common to many teens today: a broken home, peer pressure, and the struggle to find identity. However, Rachel’s story doesn’t just focus on those challenges; instead, we follow Rachel as she finds her answers through surrendering to Christ and living a vibrant faith. Not only does her rededication bring personal peace and purpose, it impacts those who meet her, know her and love her.
“I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion,
it can start a chain reaction.” ~ Rachel Joy Scott
So this is not a story about loss, it’s a story about life and legacy. And it is certainly an important story to be told today, delivering a message that not only inspires teens but touches generations. After all, we each have an opportunity to reach out to others and to offer compassion, truly modeling the love of Christ.
