The students who died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will never be forgotten.

But as the surviving students struggle to come to terms with the horrific incident, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade decided to surprise them.

Wade visited the school in Florida on Wednesday morning.

The humble giant met with students and teachers and posed for photos. Wade told the excited crowd they inspired him.

The NBA legend has worn the name of shooting victim Joaquin Oliver on his game sneakers for the past several games.

He was reduced to tears last week after learning that Oliver was buried in a replica of his No 3 Heat jersey.

Wade met privately with the boy’s parents last weekend to thank them and ask how he could help going forward.

Videos seen on social media show Wade making his way in a sea of screaming students.

‘I just wanted to come here today and hopefully for a moment, for a second, bring a little bit of this,’ he said into a microphone, addressing a crowded lunchroom.
