The Last Lecture

I chose 'The Last Lecture' because I find the story interesting and appealing. It is very saddening to know that you are not going to live long and is very hard to do all the things you want to do in that short period of time. If I were the author, I would find it very difficult to make a decision. I liked how the author was so sure of what to do and who to spend time with. I also liked how the author was optimistic towards the whole thing.

I am still young so, to achieve childhood dreams is a bit impossible. However, this is the stage where everyone must dare to dream, in order to ' achieve our childhood dreams' in the later years. I believe we can dream any kind of dreams, after all , we are still children. In fact, I think that the more ridiculous or challenging your dream is, the harder you would want to work towards it and in the process, learn a lot of things you thought you would never learn.

I was a bit shocked when he said that he was giving the lecture partly because of his children. I could tell that he really did not want his children to forget him. He also mentioned that the lecture was kind of like a lifetime of lessons a father would teach to his child/children compressed into just a short one two hours. His love for his children was sincere, strong and really deep. It is a blessing to have such a father.
