This is a clip from the Oprah show. Randy Pausch gave this lecture at his university in September. He at the time was given 3-6 months to live.

The talk this gentleman gave was very inspiring seeing especially knowing his recent news. What I thought sad about this talk watched by literally millions of people (over 6 million hits on the Internet to date) was that he gives credit to 'karma' and following your dreams to live a successful life. He talks of great principals; people over things, choose not to complain, choose to be happy, etc. all which are great. I think it is sad that for him, he sees the end of this life the end.

I agree Jill, that was very inspiring and the principals he speaks of are all great things to live by. If people could know that we could choose how we live our life AND that we also have hope for an eternal life promised by God!
