Remember February 14, 2018

I hope that no member of our community lets February 14 pass without remembering the 17 deaths that followed when a maladjusted young man with an assault rifle invaded the halls of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

If you are lucky to have someone to love, I would not wish to deprive you of Valentine’s Day — we need more love in the world, and we should not allow anyone to steal it from us if we can help it.

Yet in honor of those who lost friends and family a year ago and will never experience February 14 the same way again, this is a good time to do something large or small to make a difference. The students and parents who turned to activism have made a real difference, even as much more remains to be done.

MarchForOurLives needs your voice, your vote, and your support.
