Wade called himself "part of this MSD family" and told graduates that it was understandable if they feel unsure about their futures - because in some ways, after 16 years in the National Basketball Association, he also is unsure exactly what his future entails.

The graduating students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas got quite a surprise on Sunday when Dwyane Wade was introduced as the special guest speaker during the school's graduation ceremony.

Healing project: People gather around the "Temple of Time" in honor of the 17 that were killed during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018 in Coral Springs, Fla, on February 14.

One of the students killed, Joaquin Oliver, was a Heat fan who called Wade his favorite player. In his speech, Wade talked about the impact the students have had on him over the past few years, as well as his experience visiting the school in the aftermath of the tragedy that rocked the community. I remember us walking to the school and I remember hearing absolutely nothing. "I remember thinking to myself, 'I've never felt - I've never heard this kind of silence before in my life, '" Wade said.

"I remember being so nervous to see and meet everybody". What would I say?

Wade told students of his experience growing up in Chicago and seeing "a lot of bad things".

"I realized that we had so much more in common than I even knew", Wade said.

'What started going through my mind was, "How do I dare come here and act like I know what you guys have been going through?"' he admitted. "So, I remember walking in and meeting the staff and actually being surprised that everyone was excited to see me". I remember thinking, 'Wow.' It was packed. "I didn't expect that".

Wade posted on Instagram to commemorate the appearance on Sunday. The next exchange that followed was Wayde saying: "to the last man, to the last minute, to the last second", to which they would all come together to deliver a powerful "we fight!"
