awe inspiring video... The last Lecture

This video - the last lecture - a lecture given by Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving talk, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

Now here's one man who knows how to make lemonade from lemons.

Also keep our friend Alan Metcalf in your prayers. He's just undergone 2nd brain surgery in 3 years to remove an aggressive tumor. He's another person who's inspiring and want to bolster him and everyone else with some prayers.
