Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon Computer Science Professor known for his famous "last lecture" died Friday from pancreatic cancer. In September 2007, he gave a lecture to his students that has come to be known as The Last Lecture. His lecture wasn't about dying, but about living and overcoming obstacles and following your dreams. Every single time I watch this, I cry. So, if you haven't seen this before, grab a tissue and be prepared. His book would make a terrific gift for someone struggling through a difficult time, but also for no reason at all.....just to remind us that it's short and it's challenging and it's full of dreams, but life is yours.
