Did you ever have a dream?

Randy Pausch did. This video is wonderful, all about fulfilling your dreams, not sad.

From MSN news- PITTSBURGH - Randy Pausch, a computer science professor whose "last lecture" about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, has died. He was 47.
Pausch died early Friday at his home in Virginia, said Anne Watzman, a spokeswoman for Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh where he worked. Pausch and his family moved there last fall to be closer to his wife's relatives.
Pausch was diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer in September 2006. His popular last lecture in September 2007 garnered international attention and was viewed by millions on the Internet.
Here's his lecture "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," on YouTube (I love YouTube!!)

RIP Randy. You'll be missed.

edit- Scott, my beloved husband of 25 years died last January of pancreatic cancer after 4 months post diagnosis. It's a horrible, horrible way to go.
