Marjorie Stoneman Douglas (MSD) High School shooting survivor and activist David Hogg was the speaker for the first night of the 2018/19 Donald Lecture Series on Tuesday in Centennial Theatre. Hogg’s life changed drastically on February 14, 2018, when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire with an AR-15 in the Parkland, Florida high school, killing 17 students and staff members and injuring 17 others. Only 18 years old, Hogg delivered a poignant testimony to the Bishop’s University students. He explained that although he heard the gunshots that day, hearing his little sister cry uncontrollably after four of her closest friends passed away was a sound he would never stop hearing.
