I’d like to tell you about my special encounter with a well-known public speaker in Vietnam several years ago.
It was a summer afternoon and I was on my way back to the campus after finishing my part-time work. When I was turning onto the familiar street where my campus is based, I saw an old man waving at me. He had a warm and friendly smile, and looked like someone I know. I pulled over and he asked if I could give him a lift to Foreign Trade University, my university of course. He told me he just got off the bus and intended to walk but realized he was running late. I said “yes” and he climbed onto the back seat. We chatted enthusiastically about student life for the whole trip. He kept praising my school, its modern facilities and its brilliant students. When I dropped him off, he asked me if by any chance I knew who he was. Totally, I got confused and didn’t know how to answer. I was sure I knew him but just couldn’t recall his name. He laughed out loud and said he was Mr. Le Tham Duong, a renowned speaker in Vietnam. Then, he thanked me over and over for helping him to arrive on time for his talk at my school. I thought to myself how come I didn’t recognize him. I am a big fan of him too and even wished to meet him in person the other day. What a coincidence! Life is truly worth living because it is filled with so many unexpected and exiting events like this.
