Nicholas Dworet would have turned 18 years old on Saturday, his friends revealed during the March For Our Lives event in Washington, DC.
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior was one of 17 people killed on February 14 when gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire with an AR-15 inside the Parkland, Florida school.
Samantha Fuentes, 18, who was shot in both legs and hit with shrapnel in her face, gave a heart-wrenching speech at the rally pleading for stricter gun laws.
In the middle of her addressing the crowd Fuentes, overcome with emotion, ducked behind the podium to vomit but quickly gathered herself together.
