How would you meet the news of your impending death?

This video is Dr. Randy Pausch's last lecture to his students at Carnegie Mellon. Randy has cancer and was told last September that he had only a few months left to live. Want to be inspired (even as you sob)?

It's 12 minutes. I think you'll like it.

I just want to mention also, this is how Kim sees things. He's been helping me get to this place for the past couple of years and I'm very grateful.

Hi mamabird,
I think his talk is important to all of us.

What a good reminder of familiar lessons. I definitely see why you said "this is the way Kim sees things." Thank you for sharing!

Slayde,
You are so fortunate to have Kim for your dad. He really is the most special person I know. We are better because of him.
I, too, am fortunate that he was your dad. I had a remarkably easy time as a stepmom because of how he raised you and Abe.
