Graduation is a special day for students but not all are fortunate to have an opportunity to celebrate it with their friends and family. It was a lonely graduation day for a teen in Alabama. He was left all alone, sitting by himself after the other students left. But thanks to a kindhearted teacher, It soon turned into one of the happiest days in his life, reported the Good News Network

Bessemer City High School held its annual graduation ceremony and Dominque Moore was one of the teachers involved in coordinating the event. After the ceremony had ended, Dominique was cleaning up when he noticed a student still sitting there by himself.  

“I know his moods and I knew he wasn’t himself. I asked him, ‘Where are your people?’ and he was like, ‘Nobody’s here," Moore told AL.com. The teacher explained that he didn't know how to react at first so he told the teen, “I expect big things from you and it’s going to be OK.” Moore still had some hope that someone would show up eventually to at least give him a ride home but no one did.  The teacher then offered to do it himself and decided to take him out to eat at any restaurant of his choice. They ended up at the Cheesecake Factory, and enjoyed a hearty meal and dessert to celebrate the graduate’s achievement, reported the Good News Network
