The Kidz Dream Team

Link to the New York Times article

I listened to this lecture about 8 months ago and today it was in the New York Times.

Imagine | Quoted from the article,”Dr. Pausch, 47, is dying of pancreatic cancer, a disease that kills 95 percent of its victims, usually within months of diagnosis. Except for a pill bottle on the table in front of him, there were no outward signs of the deadly tumors growing inside him. Though he had just recently recovered from heart and kidney failure, he looked boyish, with a red knit shirt and a head of thick dark-brown hair.

Last fall, after doctors told him that he would probably have no more than six months of good health, Dr. Pausch stepped down from his academic duties and relocated to be closer to his family. But he decided to give one last lecture to a roomful of students and faculty members at Carnegie Mellon.”

The Reason for this last lecture was his kids. The result was a standing ovation around the world and he is still going. Sure made me wake up to what I refer to in my novel One More Day, “the love of living.”

  1. Good afternoon Canada!
    “experiencing zero gravity”: exactly! Wonderfully said (although I am not sure he means what I understand!) and this is exactly my own aim and way through my actual life…

  2. The cake seems to have got a problem with zero gravity though… 🙂
    And Kevin too, I guess, when he will see it!
