Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting 3 Years Later

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting 3 Years Later

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting has been the highlight of this month as Guardian Defense (“GD”) does not take lightly the events that took place on Valentine’s Day, just three years ago.
A day intended for expressing love to those we care about turned out to be the most terrifying day for our Parkland, Florida community.

Today, we ask you to take a moment of silence, a time to meditate or pray and remember the victims, their families, the survivors, and the community still feeling the impact of this event.

Remembering the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting in 2021

GD celebrates all of the 17 angels that lost their lives during the Parkland High School Shooting in 2018. If you caught our previous article from the beginning of this month, you’ll know we’ve been enjoying the #17DayCelebration, which consists of participating in 17 days of activities that reflects something fun about each victim.

GD team members came together to carry out these activities, and here are few of our favorites!

1. Honoring Luke Hoyer

In honor of Luke Hoyer, Instructor Lynette shoots hoops with her son. We will always have Luke in our hearts when playing basketball!

2. Honoring Helena Ramsey


Instructor Jared is engrossed in Harry Potter in honor of Helena Ramsey. Next time you pick up a book, think of Helena and her joys of reading!

3. Honoring Meadow Pollack

We heard Meadow Pollack enjoyed working out and Instructor Jeff shares her wishes to create a healthy lifestyle. Will you think of Meadow next time you exercise?

Putting Actions Behind Words in Honor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Community

We enjoyed putting these activities together and showing the world that keeping tragedies like these on the forefronts of our minds helps us in our work of minimizing mass casualties.

While it is important to never forget the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting, it is even more important to put actions behind our words.

As promised, throughout the remainder of the month our instructors will offer safety tips on how you can better protect yourself, or others if faced with a threat. Find these life-saving tips on our social media platforms!
