Randy Pausch "Last Lecture" R.I.P.
 
Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon professor who became world-famous after his "Last Lecture" went up on You Tube, died of cancer.

His last lecture was an incredibly moving talk on achieving your childhood dreams. He knew that he was dying and that nobody on earth could save him, yet he shared a joy for life with us during that speech which just might make one feel ashamed to complain about their petty problems in life.

If you do nothing else today, watch this great man speak:

Carnegie Mellon was my brother's alma mater and I have fond memories of it from his graduation.

I have seen Randy's lecture before & it is too painful for me to watch again, but for those who haven seen it, it is a must.

He renews ones faith in the human spirit, and taught me that life is sometimes just how you look at it, and then, what you make of it.

I have had some 'issues' in my life, as they say. Issues that sometimes make my knees buckle from underneath. But Randy has taught me to be positive and strong and enthusiastic with every card that I got dealt out.

This world needs many more like him.

Rest in peace, Randy Pausch, and thank you for your positive message to the world.

I watched the entire thing with a huge smile on my face. What a remarkable man; thank you Jeff for showing me that.
