The students were wearing sashes that read "MSD Strong" as memorance of the 17 people killed during the shooting in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in February. During his speech Fallon spoke about the student's future, saying "You should feel incredibly proud of yourselves. That doesn't mean you should rest on your laurels — or your yannys…Some of you will grow up to hear yanny, some of you will grow up to hear laurel, but the most important thing to know is that neither of these things will matter by the end of the summer. Here's what will matter: you, the class of 2018, will have graduated. And you won't be classmates anymore. You'll be adults who Facebook search each other at two in the morning for the next ten years."
