Today Cody Hodges came to our school and presented Rachel's Challenge, named after Rachel Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999.

Hodges claims that, after Rachel's burial on TV, a man called the Scott family saying he had a recurring dream about Rachel crying and a plant being grown when the tears landed.

About a week later the Scott family found this picture as her last diary entry. enter image description here

The picture shows a number of commonalities with the man's dreams, and the thirteen tears predict the number of casualties in the shooting. Hodges went on to say how Rachel often stated that she would die young.

Is there evidence for Rachel drawing this picture and/ for the man to have dreamt that?

    Who knows? She's dead so we can't ask her, and her having purportedly drawn a creepy picture the night before proves nothing. – kviiri Sep 30 '15 at 11:33

    This could possibly be a reasonable question if it were asking if said drawing has been shown to have existed before the shooting took place, but whether it predicted the event, that's unknowable. – Sean Duggan Sep 30 '15 at 11:54

    A drawing is not a prediction, nor a claim. If there is a more specific prediction and claim, then please edit the question accordingly. – Sklivvz Sep 30 '15 at 13:39

    Edited, not sure exactly how to phrase it. The main question was if there is evidence that the story isn't a scam. – theskepticnumber8412 Sep 30 '15 at 21:12
