"You are not grieving alone. We are all grieving with you. The entire country is grieving with you," is the message that a group of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High graduates from around the country sent to the survivors of the school shooting via a video shared on social media.
"Eagles soar high," "Be proud to be an Eagle," "We are with you," were among statements expressed in the video by Stoneman Douglas High alumni from all corners of the country, from Coral Springs to California, including Louisiana, New York, Wisconsin, Texas, Hawaii, Washington D.C. and other states.
Also featured is Stoneman Douglas High Principal Ty Thompson, reminding survivors: "I will hug each and every one of you as many times as you need and I will hold you for as long as you need me too. All 3,300 of you and your families. We will get through this together. Our community is strong."
The video closes with the photos and names of the 17 students and staff killed during the mass shooting on Feb. 14, and a quote from Marjory Stoneman Douglas: "There is always the need to carry on."
