A massive tribute to the 17 victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas was on display in Times Square yesterday.

The tribute featured three electronic billboards listing the names of all the victims, as well as 17 flying eagles (the school's logo) and the hashtag #MSDStrong.

The words "In loving memory of the 17 lives lost, from your alumni across the nation," were also displayed at the bottom of the memorial.

According to WPLG, the signs were created by Stoneman Douglas alumni Shane Fedderman and Stacey Goldman, along with the help of former students across the country. The space for the memorial was donated free of charge by digital sign creator Big Sign Message.

Big Sign Message tweeted that it was “proud to have helped, even in a small way.
