NBC "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon sent some love to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the students for their strong voice after the deadly shooting earlier this month.

During his first full show since the Feb. 14 attack, Fallon said his heart is with the victims, families and everyone affected by the shooting.

He called the students' action urging for policy changes after the shooting "unbelievable."

"They are speaking out with more guts, passion, conviction and common sense than most adults," said Fallon. "It's beyond impressive. That strength that they have is inspiring. They are angry, and they're doing something about it and creating change. This is a real revolution." 

Fallon said he, his wife and two children will march alongside the Parkland students in Washington, D.C., on March 24 to demand action to prevent gun violence.

"The Tonight Show" host joins George and Amal Clooney, who said last week they are donating $500,000 to students organizing nationwide marches against gun violence. The Clooneys said they'll also attend next month's planned protests.

Oprah Winfrey also called the outspoken students of Parkland "warriors of the light" and matched the Clooneys $500,000 donation.
