MiamiHerald / It wasn’t a normal school day for the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, but it was a first step.
On Wednesday, students – most wearing clothes with the school’s mascot (an eagle) or the school color (maroon) – made their way back to the campus that two weeks earlier became the site of the deadliest high school shooting in American history. They ducked a horde of TV cameras and reporters, weaved past well-wishers dropping off flowers and posters at the memorial for the 17 victims and passed hundreds of law enforcement officers who showed up to offer support, some from as far away as New York.
Despite the anxiety many students felt, roughly 95 percent of the school’s nearly 3,300 students came to class.
When they passed through the gates of the school’s fence, now a mosaic of signs offering messages of support, the world inside was just as surreal.
