Connecticut. I was speaking with my husband about it, although much of those 20-30 minutes we both just sat there in silence and disbelief. I was trying to process what had just happened in my mind. I began asking myself the question that every other parent (and non parent) in this country had been asking- Why? What happened to cause this horrific event? How could so many children be gone in the blink of an eye? While my mind knows that these questions are never really answered, my heart just can't help but beg for some type of sense to be made of it. I am a psychic medium. I spend most of my life connecting with those who have passed on from
this world. I deal with loss and tragedy everyday for a living, but there are times, and this is one of them, that I cannot even begin to "deal with" a loss. In this case, the amount of pure pain & complete emptiness associated with losing the most innocent & precious of souls as a child is next to impossible to even put into words. I am a very spiritual person. I know firsthand that there is in fact a God who is in control of this world and while I do not go to church or practice any specific religion, I talk to this God often. I began asking him why, how this could have happened, imagining these families being told that they lost their loved ones in an instant and in such a horrific manner.
I then heard an answer-I'm not claiming in any way that God spoke to me yesterday, nor that I have any special connection with God that others do not....I do not know where this answer came from for sure- It may have been my spirit guides, my angels, my loved ones who have passed, or even my own mind and psychic ability trying to tell me something, but I heard one
word..."Scott". At the time, I had no idea how a simple name could have anything to do with the questions I had been asking in prayer. I told my husband..."I'm not sure where the connection is or even if the gunman has been identified" (thinking maybe I was picking up on the gunman's name) I later learned that the name of the gunman was not Scott, but I kept getting one
name loud and clear "Scott" over and over again, I'm hearing the name "Scott".
Late last night after crying most of the day, I began to feel physically ill, so I headed to bed and cried myself to sleep thinking of the parents who had gone through so much pain that day, as well as the family members of the adults that were lost, the responders, the media, and everyone else feeling such deep pain. This morning, as I was reading through my Facebook news feed on my cell phone, I read a post out loud to my husband (which I have included below in its entirety) and the phone literally fell out of my hand when he stopped me while I was reading it to him. He had shock in his voice when he shouted "SCOTT...THAT'S IT....SCOTT! "
it hit me like a slap in the face. This is the answer, this is the "Scott" that I was being told about
yesterday & was the answer to this horrific dilemma we face and these all too often acts of violence. Below is the post. I realize not everyone will believe me and I'm not trying to seem as though I have any answers or anything prophetic has occurred, but I do believe that someone was giving me an answer that was right in front of my nose all along:
COLUMBINE STUDENT’S FATHER 12 YEARS LATER !!
Guess our national leaders didn’t expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful. They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness.. The following is a portion of the transcript:
“Since the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers."
"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain’s heart."
“In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don’t believe that they are responsible for my daughter’s death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be
defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel’s murder I would be their strongest opponent."
"I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy—it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best."
Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question “Why?”
You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!
“Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological
seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs—politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts."
“As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA — I give to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone! My daughter’s death will not be in vain!
The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!” - Darrell Scott
Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man’s speech.
I now understand the message that I was receiving loud & clear- the name Scott referred to this man, who had a message to tell us all. Our children should be permitted to pray to their God in school and anywhere else they wish- regardless of who their God is. Did these acts of violence occur before taking God out of our public lives & schools?..... maybe, but have these acts increased since taking God out? - The answer to me is obviously...yes.
I am saddened and sickened by the horrific events that unfolded Friday. My heart breaks everyday for those who are lost & heartbroken after losing their loved ones, but the amount of pure pain & complete emptiness associated with losing the most innocent& precious of souls as a child is next to impossible to even put into words....My thoughts, love, and prayers go out to the families of all the victims, witnesses, responders, reporters, & law enforcement affected by Friday's senseless tragic act of hatred and rage.
