"She has never done anything to anybody to deserve this"

We know a little more about Emily Keyes, the 16-year-old killed Wednesday during a hostage situation at her Colorado high school. She has a twin brother, waitressed at a cafe a few days per week, played volleyball and liked video games. The morning before she died, her world history teacher read one of her papers to some younger students, using her work as an example to aspire to.

Her last text message to her family: "I Love U Guys." The family's statement, via CNN: "In memory of Emily, we would like everyone to go out and do random acts of kindness, random acts of love to your friends or your neighbors or your fellow students because there is no way to make sense of this. It's what Emily would have wanted."
