A video posted on Twitter shows Wade walking through the cafeteria as excited students can be heard screaming.

Last month, 17 people were killed by a gunman at the Parkland, Fla. high school. Students have been advocating for gun control since the tragedy occurred.

The Miami Heat star posted a tribute on Instagram of the lives lost from the shooting.

He also took to Twitter to commend the survivors saying, “I’m looking forward to being more involved in the change that they will create.”
