On February 14, 2018, a gunman took the lives of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Over the last few months, the students and faculty have been trying to cope and move forward. On Sunday, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School class of 2018 graduated, and Jimmy Fallon made a special appearance to give a speech. Only a little bit of his speech was documented, which you can see below. 

Congratulations Marjory Stoneman Douglas Class of 2018! You are not just the future - you are the present. Keep changing the world. Keep making us proud. #MSDStrong #YouAreThePresent

According to PopSugar

After cracking a few jokes during his speech, he took a more serious note as he offered some encouraging words to the graduation class. "The first thing is this: when something feels hard, remember that it gets better," he said. "Choose to move forward. Don't let anything stop you."

Fallon was asked to be there by school faculty member, Jeffrey Foster. 

It certainly was a beautiful way to help the school heal from a terrible tragedy. This is why people love Jimmy Fallon! Click here to read more.
