Live like you were Dyin'

I was listening to the radio this morning as I was driving kids to school. The DJ's were talking about a man named Randy Pausch who is dying of Pancreatic Cancer. They said how amazing this man is and the attitude he has towards life. I came home and googled him and found a ton of video clips on YouTube about him.

If I were more techno-savvy I'd know how to imbed the actual video right here. But we all know better, so here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8kUTUIveyA&NR=1

PLEASE make some time in your day to check this out. It will inspire you to, as Tim McGraw sings, "Live like you were Dyin'."

I first saw him on Oprah then in an e-mail and he was on Primetime last night. He and wife are so inspirational. It is so amazing the difference attitude can make. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a lot! I just spent the past couple of hours watching his Last Lecture and reading his update blog. :) Amazing person - even more incredible in ways is his wife. How hard would that be to know your husband is dying, you will be a single parent and, for the most part, your children will nto remember their Dad. Thanks for sharing "a little good news today." Love ya!
