Coral Springs Hosts "Day Of Healing" Honoring First Responders Of Parkland

Students, teachers, parents, and community members affected  by the tragic Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February came together Sunday to honor their journey to redefine normalcy -- a true journey of healing. 

About 75 volunteers with the City of Coral Springs organized an event Sunday called “Day of Healing” at North Community Park in Parkland. There were tearful reunions and tough moments, but also moments of appreciation and therapy dogs to bring some joy.

The event was organized so that those involve could meet some of the emergency crews who responded to the shooting and to say thank you.

“We applaud them tremendously for what they have done,” said said a MSDHS student's mother.

“It makes me feel amazing to see people aren’t just thinking of themselves, they’re helping others as soon as they can,” said a student attendee.

“They help the people feel better, put a smile on their face,” said one event attendee.

Students are back in school this Monday on an adjusted schedule, and are expected to return to a full school day schedule on Wednesday.
