A little perspective on life from Columbian Randy Pausch

       A few years ago the video of Randy Pausch's "Last Lecture" given at Carnegie Mellon University became a You Tube phenomenon.  Most our you have probably watched it at least once.  You probably know that Randy grew up in Columbia and graduated from Oakland Mills High School.  I have bookmarked Randy talking about the lecture and have watched it probably 20 times to put a little perspective on life.  It always makes me think what would I would say in my "last lecture." 

P.S.
It is a little long but here is the full lecture.

I'm not much of a reader (at least in the way of books, I'm more of a magazine or blog guy). I read Randy's book and it was amazing. I think it would be a great idea for that book to be part of the curriculum at some high schools in HoCo. It puts a lot of things in perspective.
