To Life!

Yesterday virtual reality pioneer and teacher Dr. Randy Pausch died, finally succumbing to pancreatic cancer, and people the world over stopped for a few moments to mark his passing. Why? Because he stared Death in the face and he saluted Life. His "Last Lecture" at Carnegie Mellon had been a sensation on YouTube, a viral phenom, viewed by millions.

Pausch's last lecture was called "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" wherein he shared his own dreams including floating in zero gravity, playing pro football, and becoming a Disney Imaginer.

What does it mean to live? For Pausch, living means pursuing your dreams.

What a wonderful lesson he has given us about the meaning of life.

What are your dreams?

Randy was awesome and he will be dearly missed. May we all find that inner spark that Randy found.
