I think this video (or part of it) was posted a while back but I couldn't find it.....Yes, this video is a really long one (76 minutes), but I think it's well worth it to watch and if you know any of the story of this Professor, you know that it's a great story especially for you with kids, but also for everyone else.
His name is Randy Pausch and he has pancreatic cancer and is currently 2 months past his death date that his doctors gave him last year.
He has just written a book that was released today and I'm going to be picking it up tomorrow and devoting most of my free time to reading through it.
I'm not usually all about reading books much in the first place, especially feel good type of stuff, but I'm in the mood for some different perspective.
I post this to say at a minimum, take an hour and watch the video and if you're feeling so inclined, give the book a read........it's not often you find a teacher that has people from all over the country flying to experience his "Last Lecture."
