Craig Scott is the brother of the late Rachel Scott.
Rachel was the first victim of the deadliest high school massacre in US history at Columbine High in Littleton, Colorado.
Craig and his brother, Mike, now travel the country implementing Rachel's Challenge in Public and private schools.
"We challenge them to look for the best in life and focus on the right things," said Craig Scott.
Craig admitted he used to be a bully in high school, but the story of his sister changed his life.
He learned Kindness and compassion.
"She inspired me to do those things. It's a lifestyle and when I think about her and what she stood for, it helps me to act that way," said Craig Scott.
Rachel kept lots of journals and she always wrote about how she would impact the world and how she wanted to start a chain reaction of people treating each other the right way.
"The two shooters at Columbine wanted to start a chain reaction. They talked about it in a video they made. They wanted more school shootings to happen after the Columbine shooting. My sister also talked about starting a chain reaction, but one of kindness and compassion and her chain reaction has far out reached there's," said Craig Scott.
One of the biggest goals of the challenge is to eliminate prejudice.
Craig stressed how Rachel never pre-judged people and looked for the positives within people rather than the negatives.
Craig just hopes others hear this message and implements it in their lives.
Craig and Mike Scott will be in Albany most of this week.
