Inspirational Speech - Dying Professor Last Lecture 1

Hi Planet,

I manage to come across these series of videos through a good friend from Malaysia. Truly inspirational speech/lectures from a Dying Professor that are giving his last lecture series. Now, i am proud to share with you on such a motivational figure that would like to walk the rest of his steps on earth by lecturing positivesness to as many people as possible.

Randy Pausch set the tone early in Sept 2007 at his farewell lecture at Carnegie Mellon University.

"If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you," said Dr. Pausch.

It is probably the last public speech Dr. Pausch will give anywhere. The 46-year-old computer science professor and father of three preschoolers has incurable pancreatic cancer. Doctors have given him months to live.

Yet, standing at the podium in McConomy Auditorium on the campus yesterday, Randy Pausch did not focus on impending death. Instead, he celebrated the chance he had been given to live the life he always had dreamed of.

I salute you Dr. Pausch for your positiveness!

For others, do share this with anyone that comes into your life.
