Moskowitz Remembers Victims on the 6th Remembrance of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Shooting

PARKLAND, FL – Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) released the following statement on the 6th remembrance of the mass shooting that killed 17 innocent victims at his alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida:

“February 14, 2018, feels like yesterday. It was the day that changed our community forever. The images of that day still haunt me. We remember the victims and the families of those lost six years ago today – all because they went to school on Valentine’s Day.

“Those families still have empty chairs at their dinner table, today’s anniversary is just another day without their loved ones. For me, it’s a reminder of how government and its elected leaders failed those children, adults, and families 6 years ago.

“This is why I fight every day to prevent other families from being drafted into an exclusive club no one wants to belong to. It is why I have organized guided visits with Members of Congress to come to MSD to show them the true aftermath of a mass shooting, what went wrong, and how this is preventable. This solemn day is about the victims and their loved ones. Please join me in remembering the 14 students and 3 staff members at MSD who were taken from us too soon.”
