Randy Pausch – A true inspiration…

July 25th, 2008 1 comment

If you don’t know who Randy Pausch is — well — you should.  He was diagnosed with cancer last fall – told he had 6 months to live.  Well – his time to return home has come, he passed away this morning – he beat the 6 months, but cancer finally caught up with him.  Fortunately for us – the cancer didn’t really beat him though – he showed each of us that we have the power within ourselves to reach our dreams, regardless of what odds are stacked against us.

I watched his “Last Lecture” just a few days after it was posted online.  It inspired me to action – and his death reminds me of the commitments I made to myself nearly a year ago.  I have dreams to accomplish – and need to set out to accomplish them – regardless of the trials that beset me.  If you haven’t seen it yet – I’d start by watching it (it is an hour – so be sure to set aside an hour that you won’t be interrupted – it is worth it):

Randy – you have left a legacy behind you.  To Jai and your children – we are praying for you – and I know that Randy is hard at work preparing the path for each of you once you one day meet again in the life to come.

Thanks Randy for making this world a better place than it was before you came.
