PARKLAND, Fl. – Of all the 17 people tragically killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, there is one student the public is wanting to be buried with military honor.
Fifteen-year-old Peter Wang was part of the JROTC program at Douglas. His friends said he sacrificed himself and was shot repeatedly while holding a door open to let his classmates escape.
“He was one of my closest friends… He died a gentleman holding the door for other students,” said his peer, Kelsey Friend.
Please sign this. He was killed holding the doors open for others. He was a ROTC cadet so this petition is that he gets a Full Honor Military Burial. He is a hero and deserves it.
