Ellen, Kim Kardashian, And More React To The Fatal School Shooting In Parkland, Florida
At least 17 are dead, several others injured, after a shooting at a Florida school where a former student opened fire Wednesday at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian, and Reese Witherspoon among others have taken to social media to react to the fatal school shooting.
No words, no actions, no laws are enough until we end this epidemic of school shootings in our country. My heart is with the students and parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 14, 2018
We owe it to our children and our teachers to keep them safe while at school. Prayers won't do this: action will. Congress, please do your job and protect Americans from senseless gun violence— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 15, 2018
Heartbroken over the news of another school shooting. This is the 18th in 45 days of 2018. Students & teachers shouldn't have to fear for their safety. We must do more to prevent these senseless acts of gun violence. My heart is w/ the people in Parkland, FL. Enough is enough.— Reese Witherspoon (@RWitherspoon) February 15, 2018
Prayers without accordant action are silent lies told to oneself, heard by no God, amounting to nothing. Action is the language of truth, the prayers of the Saints.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) February 14, 2018
Like thousands in South Florida, we sent the boys to school in Broward County this morning... there are no words to describe the despair, horror & anger. This does not have to be our collective reality. How many more? How many children must not make it home?— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) February 14, 2018

Our hearts are shattered by the terrible news about Parkland… love you so so much Florida ❤️— Fifth Harmony (@FifthHarmony) February 14, 2018
I hate guns. I hate people’s defense of guns. I hate the NRA. I hate watching kids filing out of another school, terrified. I hate that their friends are dead. I hate that it will happen again soon. And I hate that nothing will be done. What a fucking mess #Broward #guncontrol— Eric McCormack (@EricMcCormack) February 14, 2018
