Caring for dying children is probably one of the hardest jobs in the world.

For South African paediatrician Alastair McAlpine, it is a reality he has to deal with every day.

His role is to make sure the youngsters experience as much happiness as possible in their final days.

Recently he was given an assignment where he asked his patients what they had enjoyed most about their short time on Earth.

The responses from the kids, who are aged between 4 and 9, might not be what you would expect.

According to Alastair, none of them wished they had watched more television or spent more time on Facebook.

Alastair compiled all of the response in a moving Twitter thread which quickly went viral.

These sage words display a maturity in these kids that most adults would strive for.

Alastair's take-home message is something that we should all take to heart.
