What happens when…..?

September 12, 2008

What happens when you stand in front of 489 High School students and speak for more than an hour on values and principles for living? One word……Electrifying!!!

When you speak in front of young people your mind tells you “these people have very short attention span and the age gap between the speaker and the audience may be a hindrance” but thank God it was not the case. Not many people know and I keep hearing them say, “Francis you were so inspiring….” but the truth is that most speakers will tell you they derive their energy and inspiration from the audience. And these lovely students from Caritas Don Bosco School surely inspired me.

This is the reason why I spend a lot of time speaking to young people in schools hoping that by telling them and teaching them values, they will learn it and live it and make this country a better place when it’s their turn to lead! God bless the children!

    hi sir Francis!

    thanks for visiting our school… You are so amazing! I mean, for the first time in history (i think), your talk was the most energetic and at the same time inspiring talk i’ve ever been to… Your stories about your experiences really moved me and inspired me to do better in life.

    I will never forget the day you visited the school and most especially the talk you gave that inspired us young students to be ::winners::.

    I hope you will come back soon!
    keep safe always and God Bless!
