On Tuesday, the names of all 17 people who were killed during the horrific Florida school shooting were displayed on a skyscraper in Times Square, alongside two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School memorial signs on the busy New York City street corner.
The signs were designed by two Stoneman Douglas alumni, Shane Fedderman and Stacy Goldman, and donated by Big Sign Message, WLPG reports. Each features the school’s mascot — the flying eagle — and the words, “In loving memory of the 17 lives lost, from your alumni across the nation” are displayed on the bottom of two signs.

Today we are proud to have helped, even in a small way, the Alumni of show these touching thoughts in for the world to see. These messages will be playing all day (March 6th). StayBigSignMessage (@BigSignMessage) March 6, 2018
A number of small, tangible steps toward gun control have also been taken since the shooting — including new proposed state laws and retailers changing their gun-buying policies — but there is still much left to be done to protect people from gun violence, including pressuring politicians to prove themselves willing to protect their constituents by breaking ties with the NRA and donating to one of the many groups fighting for gun control.
