Which TED talk would you choose to show social work students to inspire them in their final class of the semester

I am teaching a first year course in clinical social work. I am looking for a TED talk to show my students on the last day of class that will inspire them, engage them, and get them to think outside the box. I hope to find some way of building in a conversation about endings.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
Thanks!

    Apr 25 2011: It's not a talk at TED per se, but I think Viktor Frankl's speech on why to believe in people would be perfect. It also happens to be one of my favorites. You should remind them that in their line of work they may see some nasty things but that, aside from helping individuals deal with issues, they can help open up opportunities for them by believing in their potential.
