The horrific school shooting left 17 former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and staff members dead in 2018. One of the victims in the shooting was buried in a Wade jersey.

The feelings from the Florida calamity were recently reawakened as another horrible shooting occurred at a Texas elementary school.
