What would be your last message?

The Writer's Group has a link to a video of Professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie-Mellon University. He's dying of cancer and gave this lecture to his students. It's not morbid. It's extremely touching and inspiring. He's got an amazing spirit. Pausch's website has this link to advice on writing. (Thanks One Heart Dancing for the writing link!)

Dr. Pausch's lecture is so inspiring and I particularly love what he said on karma. Live a good life, and you don't have to worry about chasing your dreams, they will come to you. What an incredible gift to his loved ones that he could be so full and so positive and happy so close to the end of his life.

I too was really inspired but also incredibly touched by his lecture. I couldn't help but tear up because he was so positive and willing to share good karma with the rest of the world. I hope that I hope to learn from him and not forget.

I would probably be too crippled at the prospect of leaving my children to be in any way coherent.
