"In the days since the senseless loss of life at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I’ve met with members of the Parkland community, students and their families and announced a major plan of action to keep our students safe. As we work to ensure this never happens again, we must always remember and honor the students and educators lost and join together to support those impacted. Every year, Floridians will pause on February 14th to honor Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Remembrance Day, and I invite everyone to join me for a moment of silence tomorrow at 3 PM, 17 days following the shooting to honor the 17 lives lost that day.”
