These are the names of 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and teachers who needlessly lost their lives on February 14, 2018. Please take a moment to pray for each of their families, friends, and everyone else affected.   Remember each one and let their memory live on. Tragedies like this have a big impact on the United States.  Prayer is vital and encouraged!  It is heartbreaking to even think about when we have so many other threats in the world.

Here are some Bible scriptures to give comfort and healing.
