On February 14, a senseless tragedy occurred in Parkland, Florida, when a gunman opened fire at his former high school.
The attack resulted in the death of 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, with dozens more injured.
Assistant football and security guard Aaron Feis was one of the gunman's victims, who sacrificed his life to protect his students.
“It is with Great sadness that our Football Family has learned about the death of Aaron Feis,” the school's football team’s Twitter account posted early Thursday morning. “He was our Assistant Football Coach and security guard. He selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot. He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories.”
While people across the country are coming together in mourning, some are finding it difficult to keep their emotions in tact.
