Rachel Joy Scott: I want to be a light, but it feels so dark.
April 20, 1999: Rachel Scott is shot and killed by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold after Eric asks Rachel if she still believes in God and Rachel replies "You know I do!" to which Eric retorts "Then go be with Him". The next day, Rachel's schoolmates come together and lay flowers on Rachel's car, along with their parting thoughts. At Rachel's funeral, Nathan gives a moving eulogy about how Rachel moved him from homelessness to a better life.
In the days after the funeral, Rachel's mother walks into Rachel's now-empty bedroom, and upon putting Rachel's backpack on the dresser, notices a drawing of a hand that Rachel had drawn when she was only eight years old. She sits on the floor and puts her hand in the drawing of Rachel's hand, accompanied by the movie's ending lines, narrated by young Rachel and teenage Rachel, repeating a line from earlier in the movie when Rachel said that one day, her hands would touch the lives of many others.
