Like many of us (frankly anyone with a heart), Dwyane Wade was moved by the plight of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. No student should ever have to go through losing classmates and friends to a school shooter.

One of those students was buried in a Wade #3 jersey, because he was such a big fan, and Wade met with their family.

Wednesday, Wade paid a surprise visit to Stoneman Douglas, it was caught by a student with a phone (via WSVN 7 News).

Wade’s words to the students:

“I just wanted to stop by, to come to the school. First of all, I’m just so excited to be back in this city and back in the state. I just wanted to come by here and for a moment, for a second, bring a little of this (waving his arm at the crowd), a little excitement. What you guys have been going through, how resilient you have been, has been amazing from afar, and I just wanted to come and say I’m inspired by all of you. As someone out here in the public eye, I’m proud to say I’m from this state because of you guys, and because of the future of this world with you guys, so I just say thank you, man.”

Nothing but class. Well done, Wade.
