Anyone who has seen Dr. Randy Pausch, or his internet-famous “Last Lecture“… knows just how awesome of a person Randy Pausch was. I say “was” because Randy Pausch passed away today after his battle with pancreatic cancer.
The video which is a must watch if you haven’t already, is inspiring to say the least. NEVER in my life have I seen someone as accepting as Randy in terms of death. Granted, there was indeed nothing he could do about it – so dwelling and mourning about his circumstances… would do him no good.
I hope you will spend some time watching his Last Lecture, it is long – so I suggest checking it out over the weekend. Yes, this is the guy that was on Oprah ladies… so if you watched that – you know what we are talking about here.
Our thoughts & prayers go out to his family, even though we do not personally know him – his story was inspirational and gives you hope that even in the darkest times… acceptance can be one of the greatest releases.
