The family of EMILY KEYES, the young lady killed WEDNESDAY in the PLATTE CANYON HIGH SCHOOL shooting in BAILEY, CO, asked people to perform “Random Acts of Kindness” in memory of their daughter. “KEVIN AND TAYLOR IN THE MORNING” on SALEM Contemporary Christian WFSH/ATLANTA asked listeners to call in and share what they have done or will do today to honor EMILY’S memory. The station also taped the calls to send on CD to the KEYES family.
Listeners called WFSH and said they paid a neighbor’s electric bill, bought coffee for everyone at the QUICK TRIP, are having lunch with an 89-year-old grandma at a nursing home, left flowers on co-workers’ desks, started an anonymous retirement account for an overspending ex-wife, forgave a $2000 debt and paid the toll for person behind them.
Said PD KEVIN AVERY, “The list could go on-and-on. Virtually all of them made it known that the 'Random Act' was being done to remember the life of EMILY KEYES. I can't recall feeling like our show has made a difference in the world more than it did today.”
