That's one of my favorite Gilmour vids.
I have a class with a bunch of 20-somethings each week and I like to show inspirational vids as part of our discussions. Just things from all sorts of
backgrounds and genres that make you go, "Wow." One day I plan to drop this on them. I'll just say, "Hey people, here's a couple of old grandpas
playing some music." Let them roll their eyes and groan a little, then let it rip!
Just so they get a better concept that life doesn't stop at 30.
Ok, they know that already, but I am trying to impress it on them that they can do amazing stuff. At their own age, right now. Or at whatever age
because people always have value. I want them to believe in themselves and not feel they have to set themselves limits. Especially as 80% of my
students are female. I want them to totally
believe that they can reach for the stars. Never mind their gender, race, or nationality.
I'm a teacher and my main job is to teach them English. Yeah, I do that. But more than that, I try to teach them to dream
, so they can be the
best people they can possibly be.
