It’s been almost two weeks since the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and the wound is still fresh for the families of the 17 victims as well as the survivors. Classes will reportedly resume for students on Wednesday — and Monday night, on his first full show since the mass shooting, Jimmy Fallon had a message to send these teens as they fight for gun reform: “we are with you.”
“I want to say our hearts go out to the families of the teachers and students that were killed, and our hearts also go out to the students who survived because what they had to live through and what they have to live with is something I can’t even imagine,” Fallon began.
“And I think what the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are doing is unbelievable,” he continued. “They’re speaking out with more guts, passion, conviction and common sense than most adults.”
Fallon said he, along with his wife and two kids, vows to march with them in Washington, D.C. at March For Our Lives next month.
