All of this happening yards from Norris

their life.

Michael Shoels knows this kind of heart
ache all too well. He lost his son,
Isaih, 8 years ago on this very day at
Columbine High School.



MICHAEL SHOELS: 21:48:00 I know these
parents. I know the feeling that they

are feeling like there is not going to
be another day, but it's going to be
all right. It's going to be alright.

GRAPHIC=TECH The Tech tragedy has been felt


across the country, including Georgia,
where late last year the Sherwood
Baptist Church in Albany, helped
produce the movie, "Facing the Giants."

ENG#=3 VO-NAT



VO-NAT The movie is about a coach and a


football team that face great odds, but
put their faith in God.

Two of the movie's stars spoke
last night at the annual Fellowship of
Christian Athletes banquet in Salem.
Both Jason McLeod and Bailey Cave urged
the folks affected by the events at
Tech to rely on their faith.
