Two weeks have passed since the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, and students are beginning to come back to their classrooms.
Follow Nexter.org to see who came for help.
Students and faculty return to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School two weeks since Nikolas Cruz opened fire and killed 17 people.
These two weeks were tough days full of mourning and organizing to fight for increased gun control.
In wake of the traumatic event, the school’s principal, Ty Thompson, thought some therapy dogs would help provide extra comfort upon return, and the photographs are pretty precious.

Nine of the dogs are from Lutheran Church Charities in Illinois and have reportedly been a big hit with the students.
