Dwyane Wade Dedicates Art Exhibit “Parkland 17” To Shooting Victims

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade refuses to let America forget about the Parkland, Florida shooting that massacred 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School less than a month ago. 

While the lives of the families of the victims and the community at large fade away from the news cycle, Wade continues to show his support and lead tributes for the victims.  

Wade doesnt announce his good deeds, but he’s selflessly accepted the responsibility of using his celebrity influence to impact the community. Over the weekend, he dedicated an art exhibit called “Parkland 17” during Miami’s annual Art Walk, according to CBS Miami.

The exhibit featured 17 school desks with the names of the victims and a wall with a quote that read, “On an average day [96] Americans are killed by guns, ” was created by Manuel Oliver, the father of 17-year-old Joaquin Oliver, who was tragically killed in the shooting. 

Joaquin Oliver’s portrait was also seen on the wall with the words “We demand a change.” Another wall featured the words: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Phones were also available so people could call their representative and share their thoughts on gun control.

Last night was absolutely beautiful. @DwyaneWade team turned an empty warehouse into a wonderful tribute to honor the victims of the MSD shooting and also displayed the harsh truth of gun violence in this country. Wonderful job @BStyleINC @lisjoseph #marchforourlives #neveragain

A few weeks after the tragic school shooting in Parkland, the cameras and media attention turned its focus elsewhere. But socially conscious athletes such as Wade are still doing their part to ease the pain and bring attention to gun control issues.

Wade is an integral part of the fabric of the Miami sports culture and strongly invested in the Florida community. He continues to be a light of hope, dedicated to helping heal the trauma and wounds that are still very fresh in the minds and lives of everyone affected by the Parkland shooting.

  1. Respecto al split que me hablas, es una pena haber comprado un aparato sin marca conocida porque ni su calidad ni su Servicio Técnico quedan garantizados. Durante unos años mi empresa llevó la asistencia técnica no solo de los electrodomésticos de esta marca, sino también del aire acondicionado.
