Survivors of Parkland Shooting Return to Campus
Students returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since the campus shooting that took place February 14.
For the “reunification” day on Sunday, students brought flowers, wore angel outfits, and donned burgundy Eagles shirts. With counselors and teachers by their side, the students returned to school to gather the backpacks and textbooks they abandoned while fleeing from the shooter.
Here are some tweets from the students who returned:

Moving forward, the students are determined to make sure an incidence like this never happens again.
