Experiencing Interruptions?

The Italian Alphabet

Seven students from different countries come to Rome in a school for foreigners. The different age group joins in the classroom. Everyone is very excited, talking to each other, socialize, laugh and can be found in very cheerful atmosphere. Then comes the teacher and begins to ask questions about them to the same students as: where they come from, what they do in life, what are Their reasons for coming to Italy. Everyone answer the questions. When everyone talks about their experience, all other laughing and joking, suddenly the phone of one of the students start ringing and the teacher turns to him making him the same questions. The student says he has a terminal illness and remained 6 months of life, so he decides to be lived the rest of his life doing what he's always wanted to do, which is to travel and do what he has never done before. When he finishes his presentation, no one says anything. Heavy silence. The teacher tries to say something but he cannot. Then he endeavors to speak, smiles with difficulty and begins the lesson by attacking a panel with the Italian alphabet on the blackboard.
