Cassie Rene Bernall ~ Age 17

Cassie, 17, was a victim of the Columbine High School Shooting in Littleton, Colorado. When the shooting started, Cassie was in the library, studying Shakespeare. The gunmen worked their way around to Cassie, who, like the rest of her classmates, was hiding under the table, praying. One of the gunman pointed his gun at Cassie, and asked her the question, “Do you believe in God?” Cassie hesitated a minute, then she looked right at him and his gun, answering “Yes, I believe in God”. That was her last words. The gunman asked her, “Why?” She had no time to answer before she was shot to death.

  1. The last statment was proven false. Her mother made it up to make money from her childs death :(.not that that makes her death less sad. You should put up the other victims as well.

    • You are correct Allie. According to the closest witnesses Cassie Bernall was never asked if she believes in God. Another girl stated to police that she was the one that was asked this. All the killer said to Cassie Bernall is “peek-a-boo!” and then he shot her with a shotgun. I know that this is what actually happened because I read some of the police reports and interviews with the students that were in the library.
