“I didn’t get a wink of sleep last night because I’m so traumatized,” high schooler Gracey Evans told Savannah.

2. Katheryn Deprill, who took to Facebook to find the birth mother who had abandoned her as a newborn in a Burger King, told Savannah that meeting her mother after 27 years “was very exciting, just lots of emotions… and actually, it was kind of awkward." The pair talked to Guthrie in an emotional TODAY exclusive interview.

3. While promoting his new book, “The Last Days of Jesus,” Bill O'Reilly argued that the life and death of Jesus Christ should be taught in public schools.

“You shouldn’t have to seek it,” O’Reilly told Matt. “It’s a part of our history and a part of our heritage.”
