Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams


This is an Inspirational message from a man that did not have MS, he had something worse and it cost him his life. I had heard this before he passed and it is a lecture like you have never heard before.

It truly is inspirational and should be listened by everybody with illness or without.
It is long, so give yourself plenty of time to listen. I had posted this a couple of years ago and wanted to again. So here it is:

September 18, 2007: Randy Pausch

"Almost all of us have childhood dreams; for example, being an astronaut, or making movies or video games for a living. Sadly, most people don’t achieve theirs, and I think that’s a shame. I had several specific childhood dreams, and I’ve actually achieved most of them.  More importantly, I have found ways, in particular the creation (with Don Marinelli), of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center of helping many young people actually *achieve* their childhood dreams." - Randy PauschOct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008
