Every so often, we come across a story that makes us believe in humanity – this is one of them.
Kyle Simpler, an English teacher at a high school in Texas, USA, told his students that he couldn’t remember the last time he had a birthday cake.
So his students decided to throw him a birthday party on Thursday.

One of the students shared the video on Twitter, which has been retweeted over 42,000 times.
One student hands Mr Simpler a gift as he walks through the door, and after they sing him Happy Birthday he simply says, “Thank you,” through happy tears.
