Josh Gad Pays Tribute to Friend Whose Son Died in Florida School Shooting

Josh Gad Pays Tribute to Friend Whose Son Died in Florida School Shooting

Josh Gad sent his love and support to his family friend who attended CNN’s town hall discussion on Wednesday night (February 21) where he read a poem by his son Alex – who was killed in the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

Max Schachter joined students and parents of those killed in the mass shooting last week as they attended the town hall to speak with NRA representatives about gun reform.

“Life is like a roller coaster/it has some ups and down/sometimes you can take it slow or very fast/ it may be hard to breathe at times/but you have to push yourself and keep going,” Alex wrote in his poem. “Just like that bar keeping you safe at all times/ it may be too much for you at times/the twists, the turns, the upside downs/But you get back up/you keep chugging along/ eventually it comes to a stop/you won’t know when or how/but you will know that’ll be the time to get off and start anew/Life is like a roller coaster.”

During the event, Josh took to Twitter to praise Max for his strength.
