Don,

I have watched the Randy Pausch video several times...very inspirational. I had wondered recently how he was doing. I believe in miracles and was praying that he had one. I didn't know he had passed away. Thanks for sharing that with us.



Blessings,
Scott

Randy Pausch has been in the news quite a bit recently due to his death. He has been known for many things, however his crowning achievement was a heartfelt, inspirational speech he made on 9/18/2007.

His university had assigned staff the challenge of taking turns giving to their students "The Last Lecture" in which they would pretend that if they were giving the last lecture of their life, what would they say.

The difference for Randy Pausch was that he had recently been informed by his doctors that his pancreatic cancer had spread to his liver and he had only months to live. So he TRULY faced this challenge knowing he might have no time left for further lectures!

Here is a link to an article about Randy:

And HERE is a link to a YouTube of his famous speech of 9/18/2007: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

Inspiration is what SparkPeople is all about.

This man was PURE inspiration!

What a LEGACY we are fortunate enough for him to have left for us!
