Shooting victims remembered at Parkland school graduation

Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC’S “Tonight Show” delivered the commencement speech, celebrating the activism of the shooting survivors that galvanized students nationwide to call for gun reform.

Four graduating seniors who were among the 17 killed were remembered at the ceremony.

Many of the Parkland students have become outspoken proponents of gun control, pressuring companies to sever ties with the National Rifle Association and calling on legislators to pass gun safety laws as part of the #NeverAgain movement.

They helped lead hundreds of thousands of protesters who participated in the March for Our Lives demonstrations around the country this spring.
