Yesterday, after getting back from a 4-day trip to Kochi, Joseph, my first-born delighted me. He mentioned that he made a speech in his new school. As part of the class leader selection process, public speaking was required.
He guessed that he stood little chance of winning the selection process as 90% of the students in his class were old students. Nonetheless, as he had something meaningful to speak, he decided to stand up and speak.
