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.
