There are no words to sum up the devastating mass shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida.
17 students were reported dead, and the shooter identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
Cruz used the AR-15-Rifle that is known for being used in numerous mass shootings. While former classmates and media outlets have described Cruz as a loner, many are referring to him as a terrorist.
Donald Trump made a speech regarding the tragedy, and here is what he had to say:
“Our entire nation with one heavy heart is praying for the victims and their families. To every parent, teacher, and child who is hurting so badly, we are here for you whatever you need, whatever we can do to ease your pain.”
Take a look at the video below:
One of the students who survived the shooting pleaded with the congress in a recent interview emotionally begging for gun control.
“We need to dig out of this hole… there is something seriously wrong here.”

And some of our policymakers… need to look in the mirror and take some action because… without action, ideas stay ideas and children die.” https://t.co/Y42waHsOlN pic.twitter.com/sdV9P7yXSn— CNN (@CNN) February 15, 2018
A new report surfaced regarding Nikolas Cruz claiming that he trained with a White Supremacist group before the mass shooting.
The leader of the White Supremacist group Jordan Jereb of the Republic of Florida told the Anti Defamation league that Cruz participated in at least one training exercise.
