Lecture on leadership at Chunghyun High School in Gyeonggido, Korea (June 10, 2016)

I had a chance to deliver a lecture for high school students at Chunghyun 충현고 High School, in Gyeonggi-do on June 10, 2016. It was my fourth speech for Korean students at regular public high schools delivered in Korean.

Nothing it more important to me, and to the Asia Institute, than to communicate with young people who strive to create an identity for themselves, and the future, in the face of tremendous challenges. I received many, many questions from the students and had a chance to give away about twenty copies of my books to those who asked questions. I was particularly touched by a question about the issue of suicide. I felt that clearly the student who asked me about student suicide knew many who had attempted suicide. The discussion was extremely moving, and made me aware of just how great the challenge of creating a meaningful life is in this age of radical commercialization.
