Checkmate

Speaker: Hanz Jouissance

Audio Recording:


I love New York!  I remember one summer day while walking along the Brooklyn streets, I passed by two men playing a board game. Being a curious individual, I walked into the park and asked, “what are you two doing?” The men answered simultaneously, “we are playing chess.” I didn’t know how to play chess, so I sat and watched. These elderly men were so focused and helpful, telling me how every piece moved. They emphasized the strategy of protecting your king.  I asked how do you know when you win, they answered simultaneously, “whoever says checkmate, wins.”
