Parents of one the students killed in the Parkland, Fla., school shooting last year created Valentine’s Day heart candies with anti-gun violence slogans such as “don’t shoot” and “he’s gone” to mark the anniversary of their son’s Feb. 14, 2018 death.

Manuel and Patricia Oliver, whose son Joaquin “Guac” Oliver was one of the students killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, shared the candy hearts on Twitter.

The classic Valentine’s Day treats from their anti-gun violence organization, Change the Ref, feature new words including “I’m bleeding,” “help,” “call 911” and “I love you.”

“This is the new reality on Valentine’s Day unless we do something,” Manuel Oliver said in a Wednesday video.

Seventeen people were killed last Valentine's Day when a gunman opened fire inside Stoneman Douglas.

Surviving students and families have become outspoken anti-gun violence activists in the wake of the shooting, and Manuel Oliver has frequently turned to art to express his grief.

He also unveiled a life-size, 3D-printed sculpture of his son in Times Square last year to protest the legality of 3D-printed guns. The figure was dressed how Joaquin Oliver looked on the day he died and was personalized with accessories to depict his character.
