Wade surprised students Wednesday with a visit during their lunch period. Wednesday marked a return to normalcy at the Parkland, Fla., school, as it was the first full day with regular class schedules since the February 14 mass shooting.

One student posted a video of Wade's visit on social media, which is a must watch. "I'm thankful they came to the game, thankful I got a chance just to talk to them and tell them my appreciation, to let them know we will continue to use our voice, to continue to shine the light on what they're talking about and what they're going through and what they're dealing with".

Wade later wrote on Twitter that he had a "great conversation" with students about "some important/impactful things that they have planned". "As someone from here in the public eye, I'm proud to say I'm from this state because of you guys". "So I just say thank you".

DeVos broke with Republicans who have tried to stifle the survivors in their push for gun control, encouraging the students to speak up and push for reforms. The guard said he plans on being involved.

Wade been among many members of the team who have reached out to the shooting victims since it took place.
