Randy Pausch's 'Last Lecture'

I'm sure everyone has heard of Randy Pausch - he died just recently - he finished his race - living in color . . .

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.-Ralph Waldo Emerson

At the doctor's office - my husband was checking out the other day - the nurse came up and said something to him - something very pleasant like 'take care of yourself' . . . - the doctor was there and he whispered to my husband - 'you'd never know it, but she only has a few weeks left to live - cancer is riddled inside her entire body - but she is at peace with dying'. Wow - I wonder if that happened to me if I'd feel that way . . . she's an unmentioned hero, but a hero non-the-less.

Love, Chatty
