Remembrances - Randy Pausch

Do you recollect my post last year on achieving your childhood dreams? That post was about Randy Pausch who was terminally ill with pancreatic cancer and had only a few months to live. well, on the positive side, Mr. Pausch lived few months more than the few months doctors had given him then. But, the bad news that few months came to a pass and he passed away yesterday at home in Virginia.

I knew of him only after his lastlecture made its rounds in net. But, what is astonishing about Mr.Pausch is that he didn't buckle under the fear of death and tried, tried hard till the very last. By his very lecture and actions, he inspired countless around the world and certainly inspired me. I will always remember what he has to say about brickwalls.. they are there for a reaon..
the brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other peopl
May his soul rest in peace and may god by with his family and kids at this difficult time...

If you had seen his lastlecture, I strongly urge you to take look will be happy you did.
