Ida Freeman Elementary students share their ideas about Rachel's Challenge and what they can do to implement it in their school with Colleen Kirk, a Rachel's Challenge program presenter. Kirk travels across the United States inspiring students with Rachel's theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. Following the assembly, third-grader Tyson Coles, kindergartner Keely Coles, fourth-grader Ryan Ruston and first- grader Daniel Ruston tell Kirk what they are going to write on their paper strip to start their classroom's paper chain to start their "chain reaction."
