I wanted to post about Randy Pausch months ago -- but I could not figure out how to include the UTube video.... so I waited....
Like so many others, I loved his "Last Lecture."
I became a groupie -- I watched every video clip I could find. I watched the Last Lecture several times. I watched his lecture on Time Management (I really need help with that one!). I watched everything. (you can find most of his wisdom here)
And I checked his personal update site every few days.
I followed his battle with pancreatic cancer, and I was inspired.
Just yesterday (Friday), I was talking about him with Moshe. We were encouraged by the fact that he's still alive, and might even see himself when the new Star Trek movie comes out. A few hours later, his name came up again, when Moshe cited his opinion about encyclopedias and Wikipedia.
Randy Pausch passed away on Friday morning.
I can't believe that he's dead.
I am so sad.
Randy is survivd by his wife, Jai, and their three children, Dylan (6), Logan (4), and Chloe (2).
May his memory be a blessing.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
