Today on the Morning Show – Dec. 9
Chaplain Terry joined the show to talk about the incident at Virginia Tech yesterday. He’s a licensed counselor and visited the campus shortly after the tragedy in 2007. This morning he shared some insight on both tragedies and gave advice to parents wanting to know how to talk to their kids about it. You can hear what he had to say at the bottom of the page.
James of Washington DC was our grand prize winner for our WOW moments. His name was chosen out of everyone who called in this week to share a moment from Christmas that made them say “wow”. He’ll get a huge brick of CDs from some of the artists we play too. If you want to hear his “Wow moment”, click here.
Today’s Positive Thoughts:
