The Last Lecture!!

One of the most inspirational people that I have ever heard about or read about but never got a chance to meet died today.  Randy Pausch a professor at Carnegie Mellon Univ was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2006 was the author of the Last Lecture…the most widely watched video in the history of You Tube.  To me its beyond inspirational to know that you are dying and to give so much of yourself and to try and improve the human condition before you go.  The docs gave him 6 mos and he lived another 2 years. I followed his progress on his website the last lecture.  To me he is one of those people that you would say I would like the meet him and shake his hand.  I will miss him and we never even met.  He was 47.  Just a quick thought.

    This is beautiful and so very very true. I learned from my husband’s death – that life is very very short. We truly need to love more, have fun, and really take the time to figure out who we are and why we are here.
