Coral Springs, FL

Temple memorial to Florida shooting victims is set ablaze

The “Temple of Time” public art installation was set afire at a ceremony hosted by the cities of Parkland and Coral Springs, where Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students live. The families of several Parkland victims attended the ritual burning of the 35-foot (10-meter) tall temple. Described as “therapeutic” by some, the ceremonial fire was supposed to symbolize the release of pain still left inside.
