How Have I Not Seen This?

Maybe I'm the last person on Earth who hasn't seen this, but OH. MY. GOD. If you haven't seen this clip of the loveliest man with the loveliest message, please watch this. My Mother-In-Law sent it to me (thanks Mary).

It should be life's prerequisite. Get some Kleenex. Take a few minutes to absorb. You'll be a better person for it. I hope I am.

Okay, I CAN NOT get this dang thing to work.  Ugh.  Sorry.  It's so worth it for me to share this with you, that I urge you to go to Stumble Upon, or You Tube and search for Randy Pausch's Last Lecture, as reprised on Oprah.  Sorry my technical skills are ka-poot today.  :(

Good for him. He is not trying to be a hero, or a victim. Just a guy who really cares about his kids. It's a fabulous lesson for all of us.

Ack. My computer is acting up today and it isn't working. I'll try again later. Although after reading these comments I don't know if I want to. Dying? I don't know. I don't want to end up in a pool of tears. I'm a very emotional person!
