Florida Panthers goalie, Roberto Luongo, gave an emotional speech two weeks ago after Majory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. 

It was a touchy subject for Luongo who is a Parkland resident himself. 

Luongo explained it's been tough on his kids, his son was in lockdown in a closet for three hours. 

The 38 year old goalie delivered another message when sitting down with ESPN's Emily Kaplan recently. 

"We need to keep talking about this," he said. "I want the [high school students] to keep fighting. And I want everyone to pay attention. As we all know, it's not front-page news anymore. People in the media have moved on to other stuff. But it's important to keep it in the forefront. It's always going to be there. We just need to keep the dialogue going."

The incident changed the way his kids react as he explained a recent situation. His nine year old daughter recently told him she can't go to school because of a "bad feeling" in her stomach. 

He also mentioned how she jumped up in the air after hearing a siren outside "Right away, my daughter jumped up and was looking around," Luongo said. "It's not normal for children to have that feeling. The one thing I want is for my kids to feel safe at school. That's what it's all about, right? I don't care how it gets done; it needs to get done."
