While at Stoneman Douglas, Wade spoke with students about the movement they created.

“I just had a great conversation with some of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School about some important/impactful things that they have planned. I’m looking forward to being more involved in the change that they WILL create,” he wrote on Twitter.

He has taken the time on several occasions to honor one of his biggest fans, Joaquin Oliver, who was killed in the attack.

In an earlier interview, Wade was moved to tears when he found out Oliver, one of the victims of the school shooting, was buried in his jersey.

“Joaquin was one of many that i heard was excited about my return to Miami and yesterday was buried in my jersey,” he tweeted.

Wade also wrote the student's name on his Way of Wade sneakers.
