On February 14th, 2018 students at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida experienced a day that they will never forget. 19-year old Nikolas Jacob Cruz walked onto school grounds with an AR-15 rifle. He fatally shot 15 students, 2 faculty members and wounded 14 others making it the most deadliest school mass shooting.

To remember the victims, hundreds of people gathered at Library Mall. Speakers ranged from Stoneman Douglas alumni, local high school students, and representatives from organizations including the Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort.
