Wade continued to show that support Wednesday by stopping by the high school to visit with students, faculty and staff on their first full day of school since 14 students and three adults were killed in the shooting.
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. #MSDStrong 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾
Student Diego Pfeiffer posted a picture of Wade being escorted through the school and thanked Wade “for casually dropping by our school and causing a stampede in the cafeteria. An interesting lunch to be sure, thank you for your support!”
Joey Pelose posted a picture of Wade and called it “the greatest moment of my life.”
“It’s a tough time for their family. It’s a tough time for a lot of families in Parkland,” Wade said. “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.”
