College Student Was Annoyed By One Of His Classmates—Until He Made A Heartwarming Discovery

Thomas McFall usually uses Twitter for the same purpose most people do: to make silly jokes. On April 9, however, McFall had something on his mind he had to share.

In one of his classes, Thomas sits in the front row next to an immigrant every day.

Every day when Thomas walks in, the man's belongings are piled on his desk.

Twitter users adored the inspiring tale.

Some people were even interested in helping out!

Thomas realized he'd been making assumptions about the people around him and decided to change. We could all stand to have a similar epiphany every now and then.
