Morethan 2,500 people attended a talk by Nick Vujicic, an inspirationalspeaker without arms and legs, at the White Palace Conference Centre inHo Chi Minh City's Tan Binh district on May 22.

The talk was the first stop on the Australian man's speaking tour of thecountry. Vujicic's appearance was also broadcast on TV, attractingaudiences in the thousands tuning in to a live broadcast on VietnamTelevision's VTV1 and VTV6 channels.

This programme lasted nearly two and a half hours and moved many to tears.

Vujicic said he was surprised at the enthusiastic response he had received from Vietnamese audiences.

"This is the first time I have visited Vietnam, but it is not the last time," he said.

In the talk, Vujicic said that despite the rare disease that left himwith no legs or arms, he always felt happy and loved his life.

"The beautiful thing in my life is the happiness that I receive from helping someone," he said.

Confidence and positive behaviour to life would help overcomedifficulties, he said and added that people needed to "love yourself andlove each other because we need each other."

He said the value of a person was not in what they could and could not do, as everyone was different.

"We need to know every day is gift," he said. "We have to give thanks for everything we have today."

"Don't give up" was the last message he sent to audiences through his talk. "I love all of you."

On the occasion of Vujicic's visit to Vietnam, 24 people who havenot let their disabilities and illnesses including cancer and HIVprevent them from leading successful lives were honoured during theevent.

Among the 24 people are translator NguyenBich Lan, struck by muscular dystrophy when she was a teenager; NguyenPhi Long, director of Phi Long Sand Pantings in Binh Thuan province, whosuffers from hearing impairment; Nguyen Huong Duong, head of HuongDuong Audio Books Library for the Blind, who lost two legs in anaccident when she was 25; and retired teacher Nguyen Ngoc Ky, who useshis legs to do everything because his arms are paralysed.
