The Last Lecture
Whenever I read about him it leaves an uncomfortable feeling behind... there are Buddhists, who believe that before you are born, you are able to choose your future reincarnation in great detail. They believe that every being in this world was given a choice and these beings chose, based on the experiences that they wished or needed to acquire. This is partly why Buddha named "desire" as the root cause for reincarnation. Randy Pausch's lecture had such an amazing impact on millions of people watching it and listening to it on youtube.... all around the world he inspired people and gave them the courage and self-esteem to make their dreams come true.... and yet he had to leave his three kids behind. If I was given the choice to change the world or leave my kids behind, I'd say "Fuck the world".
In the last chapter of his book he talks a lot about his kids and his wife. They hadn't told them about his disease yet and he was still relatively healthy and in good shape. Reading these chapters .... it's difficult to put into words. If you get a chance, grab a copy of the book.
