Honor a Hero!

in crime •  8 months ago

A disturbed gunman killed 17 people in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland, FL) last week. We cannot change the past but we can honor those who sacrificed their lives for others. Supporters have created this petition in honor of Peter Wang: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/allow-cadet-peter-wang-receive-full-honors-military-burial

Wang helped several students escaped but was killed in the process. He proved that age isn't a limit to courage. In March, several students and their supporters plan to protest in D.C.
