The Grief and Rage Outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

A makeshift memorial was built outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at the school on February 14. As captured in the images below, the memorial has become not only a place to mourn the 14 students and three staff members killed in the attack, but also a staging ground for students and other protesters demanding action on gun control and school safety.
