Seventeen people were killed in a high school shooting in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday. This attack is one of the deadliest school shooting seen in the US since 2012. 

A football coach. An athletic director. And young students. Those are the victims, of the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Since the attack, a lot of media have shown the survivor of the shooting. Students are mostly asked about what happened inside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. “I heard about six gunshots and then some people started running,” student Jeiella Dodoo told CBS News. “And then everyone started running because we were like, ‘If it’s real, then just run.’” Some of them decided to use the media to pay their respect to the victims, such as this student, paying a tribute to the teacher who saved her life:

The majority of them are devastated, but one feeling keeps coming up: anger. They are angry because even though the staff and teachers were told what to do in case of a gun attack, it could not prevent deaths. The shooting revived the debate over gun control in the United States, with families blaming congressional inaction for the massacre. Some of the students decided to tweet the United States government, about what it felt like to live this situation.

A candlelight vigil to pay tribute to the 17 people gunned down in the Florida school shooting has reduced the crowd of thousands to tears.
