So, did you watch Randy Pausch story last night??

I did. I have to tell you I didn't handle just watching the show as well and Randy and Jai handled living with the facts. I fell into a "Eeyore" mood (ha threw a little Randy in there). I cried and cried and cried. I has seen almost all of the footage before, but there was less hope and more sadness in me when I watched it this time. Toward the end I had one of those really ugly cries, where you try to hold it in and you just end up sobbing.

again if you haven't seen the "Last Lecture" I strongly suggest you watch it. It will change the way to look and feel about life.

Here are some of Randy's quotes:

“Brick walls are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop people who don’t want it badly enough.”

"When you are doing something badly and no one’s bothering to tell you anymore, that’s a very bad place to be. Your critics are the ones still telling you they love you and care."

"Never underestimate the importance of having fun. I’m dying and I’m having fun. And I’m going to keep having fun every day, because there’s no other way to play it….Having fun for me is like a fish talking about the importance of water. I don’t know how it is like not to have fun"

“OK, you have beaten me down to my knees. And now the challenge is, I am on my knees and you keep on beating me down. And the question is, are you going to keep beating me all the way to the ground or will I find a way to struggle my way back on to my feet.”

I didn't get to watch the show because I am not from the USA. I went into an "Eeyore" mode yesterday after I found out about his death. I am actually in the middle of reading his book and I think he is one of the most inspiring individual out there.... I reviewed his Last Lecture video again yesterday and cried and cried and cried.
