Attendees at the Feb. 20 vigil for Parkland victims sign a banner that will be sent to Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school. Hundreds gathered at the Rock Plaza on campus to honor the lives of those lost and make a call to action.

Seventeen candles were lit on Tuesday evening to honor the lives of the victims in the Parkland shooting. Hundreds turned out for the University of Miami vigil for Stoneman. After all, the high school has done so much for the university – since 2006, 128 MSD alumni have attended UM, said Vice President for Student Affairs Patricia Whitely. 

These are a few of the alumni who spoke at the vigil and are now demanding change. 

This week was full of lighting candles and reading speeches but next week, students will be marching. The "Canes Care For Eagles" march hosted by Canes Against Gun Violence will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28 on the Coral Gables campus. 


It's been a tough couple of weeks. Sometimes you need to shake off the stress and the heaviness with a little bit of dancing. That's were Edge Editor Haley Walker's weekly playlist comes in. This week's lineup includes artists from all over, from Vermont to the Midwest to Australia and Canada. 

Still not enough music for you? Why not jam out while doing good. Tonight, there is a benefit concert for Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale. Carpool with some friends and sing light into this hard time. General admission is a $20 donation. Find more information here.

• Legendary UM baseball coach Jim Morris is in his final inning. He will be retiring after 25 successful years at the university and it's pretty emotional for him. Morris played a big role in turning UM baseball into an elite program. 

Meet UM's (and the nation's) first chair in atheism, ethics and secular humanism: Anjan Chakravartty. It has taken the university a while to find just the right fit for this bold new position, but the search committee is confident Chakravartty is the one. 

Ever notice how people react differently to a broken leg and a broken heart? That's what columnist Dana Munro writes about this week – invisible pain can hurt a lot more than external injuries so how can we show sympathy for both? 
Have a great weekend.
