St. Bonaventure University put their faith in action as about 60 students, faculty, and staff participated in the National School Walk-out by gathering on campus and remembering the 17 victims of the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. St. Bonaventure’s Franciscan Center for Social Concern director, Jeff Sved, noted that they participated in this National Walk-out because “we’re all delivering the same message: never again.”
The walkout program included framed photos of each of the seventeen victims with a single candle behind each image. It also included a seventeen minute video that “ended with a moment of silence to remember those killed by school shootings and a call to action.”
