Randy Pausch of "Last Lecture" Dies...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Randy Pausch, the Professor who became famous because of his "Last Lecture" died today, July 25, 2008 at his home in Virginia. He was 47 years old.

In September 2006, Mr. Pausch was diagnosed with the incurable pancreatic cancer. He became a worldwide celebrity because of the lecture which according to him was originally made for his children. But once it hit the net, the lecture became an inspiration to people from all over the world.

I watched him at the Oprah Show twice...the original telecast and the replay. His outlook in life was really a breath of fresh air as it's very inspiring.

He also co-wrote the book "The Last Lecture" which stays as one of the top seller since it's publication in April.

For those who have not watched "The Last Lecture", I found a You Tube video of and I'm posting it here for you to see. Take time to watch it. It's really inspirational.
