  • As you drive toward the Marietta Square, you’ll see it to your right – a “Heroes Work Here” sign display below the Wellstar Kennestone hospital sign. Go through two traffic lights and you’ll see homemade signs of support in the front yards of some homeowners along Church Street.   From Marietta to elsewhere in metro Atlanta, residents are now acutely aware of the burden on health care workers as the coronavirus crisis plays out … and with likely many more tough days ahead before it all gets better.  What public shows of support for health care workers are you seeing in your local community? What are you and/or others doing to support those most at risk on the coronavirus frontlines? Tweet at us to tell us with your words and pictures: @wsbradio.

  • A metro Atlanta family is thankful for an act of kindness during the chaotic coronavirus pandemic. In 2013, Jamie McHenry was killed in a tragic car crash during spring break near West Palm Beach, Florida. Every year since his death, his parents make the trip from their home in North Fulton County down to St. George Island, Florida to pay their respect to their 13-year-old son at a memorial. This year they couldn’t because of the coronavirus pandemic. But that didn’t stop the memory of their teen son from being forgotten. A random stranger in the area heard the family’s story and decided to step in and make sure Jamie McHenry’s memorial was still decorated. The kind stranger, who posted a photo of the good deed on Facebook, wrote: “Christine and the McHenry family… we were sad to read that due to this pandemic your annual trip to SGI was canceled and you will miss visiting the memorial brick for your son Jamie. Wanted to know we are watching over it for you today and he is in our thoughts. God bless.” ACT OF KINDNESS: Every year since their son died, Jamie McHenry's parents travel to Florida this week to pay their respects. This year they couldn't, so a random stranger did it for them. McHenry, of Roswell, was killed in an accident while on a trip. #InThis2gether. pic.twitter.com/a7QpR7C5mo — Mike Petchenik (@MPetchenikWSB) April 3, 2020
