The Last Lecture - A very inspirational speech by Randy Pausch

This truly inspirational speech was made by Randy Pausch, a professor from Carnegie Mellon university(CMU). Randy was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had few months to live when he made this lecture last September in CMU. The lecture is about "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - he talks about some of his dreams, how he achieved it and his learning's in life. Sadly Randy died couple of days back. He is survived by his wife and 3 young children.

I saw this news in the net 2-3 days back and had no clue on who Randy was at that time. Subsequently i read about this lecture in one of my friend's blog where it was highly recommended. I decided that I should see this and viewed Randy's 'The Last Lecture' this evening. This clip is a little long - around 1hr and 16 min, It is very moving and trust me it's time well spent. You will not regret it.

I was truly amazed by the positive spirit and attitude Randy displays knowing well that his days are numbered. That's a very brave thing to do and it is not easy. It speaks a lot about his strength of character & positive personality. The way his thoughts were structured and the style it was delivered is outstanding.
