Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

Guardian Angels Watching Over Stoneman Douglas

With red berets and white wings, the Guardian Angels have been watching over Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School since February's shooting and say they'll be there as long as they need until school lets out.

"When I heard about the shooting, I didn’t think twice. I just grabbed my beret and put on my shirt, grabbed my boots and I was getting dressed while I was running out the door to make sure I’m here to give my services and anything the Guardian Angels could do for the city of Parkland," said David 'Cobra' Clemente.

Clemente and his crew have been patrolling, monitoring cars, escorting students on campus and just listening. They don't get paid - they're all volunteers who do it out of the goodness of their hearts.

"We start our morning off at 3 o’clock in the morning and we don’t end it until after 3 o’clock or after the last bell rings at school over here," Clemente said.

The group is focused and said they hope their presence offers support the the kids after all they went through.

On May 31, the school and the Parkland community are going to officially thank the Guardian Angels. The group doesn't ask for money but if you want to support them you can visit a GoFundMe set up for them here.
