Locals gathered on the Boston Common on the one-year anniversary of the Parkland school shooting to remember the 17 victims who lost their lives on that day in 2018.
Alumni of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will read the names of all 17 victims killed in the Parkland, FL school shooting that happened one year ago today. They will read the names on the Boston Common during a candlelight vigil & moment of silence— Julie Leonardi (@JulieLeonardiTV) February 14, 2019
Dozens of people came together for a vigil Thursday evening, with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Alumni of New England reading the names of the victims, 14 students and three faculty members, from the shooting on February 14, 2018.
"We decided to come here to show our support," one Boston student said. "We are all students, and the same thing that happened to them could happen to any of us."
The reading was followed by a six-minute and 20-second moment of silence, equal to the length of time the shooter was active inside the school.
