    Kingwood TX High School Students Give Thanks And Love To Disrespected Teacher


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     EWillies1961 filmed a heartwarming moment as about 75 students from Kingwood High School in Texas paid a visit to a teacher who had been bullied this week. 'What happened was the teacher was teaching the class and he had a few louder students, one in particular. That student said, 'You're old,' and had a few other choice words, explained Willies. The students went over to Mr. Love's house last night and presented him with a card, gifts and even serenaded him with 'All You Need is Love' by the Beatles. 'It just showed the humanity of young kids here in Kingwood, Texas. We still have good kids. This was completely kid-driven.'

    About 75 Kingwood, Texas high school students visited their teacher, Mr.Love to offer him their affection and support after a difficult week. A student named Jason organized the majority of the class to offer the teacher a gesture of appreciation, showing up at his house Sunday night with an impromptu serenade of the Beatles’ “All You Need is Love,” along with a card and gifts. Mr. Love showed both surprise and extreme appreciation at the outpouring of gratitude. “It is heartening to see young students show this type of affection to their teacher,” saidJason. They could have done much more ‘fun’ things that evening. That they felt the need to show their love for Mr. Love after his less-than-ideal week proves that goodness still reigns in most of us.
