On Feb. 14, 2018, 17 people — 14 students and three staff members — were fatally shot at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and another 17 were injured. The rampage by a former student now holds the distinction of being the deadliest high school shooting in U.S. history.

Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of the tragic event, prompting survivors, parents, friends and other loved ones to pay tribute to the lives lost: Alyssa Alhadeff, 14; Martin Duque, 14; Gina Montalto, 14; Alex Schachter, 14; Alaina Petty, 14; Jaime Guttenberg, 14; Cara Loughran, 14; Peter Wang, 15; Luke Hoyer, 15; Carmen Schentrup, 16; Helena Ramsay, 17; Joaquin Oliver; Nicholas Dworet, 17; Meadow Pollack, 18; Scott Beigel, 35; Aaron Feis, 37; and Chris Hixon, 49.

Guttenberg’s father, Fred; Pollack’s father, Andrew; and Petty’s brothers, Ian and Ryan, were among the grieving relatives sharing their memories on social media.

Others, including Parkland survivor and activist David Hogg, announced their intentions to stay off social media for the grim anniversary.

Stoneman Douglas, meanwhile, has designated Feb. 14 as a “Day of Service and Love.”
