The grief and mourning continue for the 17 students and staff killed on the afternoon of Feb. 14 during a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. But something else is happening among the anguish of the interrupted lives of the victims and survivors. Out of the agony, activism has emerged and students from across South Florida are speaking out together asking for stricter gun controls. Here's a list of grief counseling resources available for the community.

Every high school graduation is a triumph in its own way — a mix of beginnings and endings.

And there’s another story that now belongs to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School class of 2018: the journey that comes after tragedy.

One of the seniors who will graduate on Sunday, Leonor Muñoz, has been documenting that journey. For the past few months, she’s been carrying a recorder, keeping an audio diary. 

Leonor’s story is part of a WLRN special hour on the end of the school year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The program airs Monday, June 4, at 11:00 a.m.
