One of the most touching videos I’ve ever seen. This video has really inspired me and triggered me to read the book “The Last Lecture”, which was written by Randy after this wildly successful lecture. The striking things about this lecture are his passion for the subject he teaches and is involved in, enthusiasm for life and enjoying life once you know you are not going to live forever. The pain and things beyond pain when you know you won’t be around to see your kids growing up!!! We subtly see the anguishing heart of a father, husband, dying of a disease whose cause is not known yet – in spite of so many technology breakthroughs by the mankind.
On September 18, 2007, Carnegie Mellon professor and alumnus Randy Pausch delivered a one-of-a-kind last lecture that made the world stop and pay attention. It became an Internet sensation viewed by millions, an international media story, and a best-selling book that has been published in 35 languages. To this day, people everywhere continue to talk about Randy, share his message and put his life lessons into action in their own lives.
Randy died July 25, 2008, at the age of 47.
