Since the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, alumni from around the country are coming back home.
They say in this painful moment for their community they have to be present.
Chelsea Tyrell graduated from Stoneman Douglas High in 2016. When she heard about the shooting at her alma mater she drove from the University of North Florida with her golden retriever.
"I thought I'd bring along my 6-year-old golden retriever who's certified as a therapy dog to just come out here if anyone needs any comfort," she said.
