Jimmy Fallon delivered a surprise commencement speech at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School's graduation ceremony in Parkland, Florida, on Sunday. The Tonight Show host applauded the students for their bravery in the wake of the February 14 shooting that left 17 people dead. "The first thing is this: When something feels hard, remember that it gets better," he declared. "Choose to move forward. Don’t let anything stop you." Fallon also jokingly told the outgoing seniors, "You won't be classmates anymore. You'll be adults who Facebook-search each other at 2 in the morning for the next 10 years."
