Valentine’s Day 2019 marks one year since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the deadliest high school shooting in our country’s history.
Maya Altman had just stepped out of her freshman biology class when she heard gunshots. That day, she would lose her friend, Alyssa Alhadeff.
At StoryCorps, Maya sat down with her mom, Robyn, to remember.
