True Inspiration

I'm just about to head out to catch a plane, but felt compelled to complete this post. If you saw the last night's ABC Special: "The Last Lecture: A Love Story for Your Life," then you understand.
Diane Sawyer interviewed Carnegie-Mellon University Professor, Randy Pausch and his family. Pausch has pancreatic cancer and seven months ago, gave an inspiring lecture that has now been viewed around the world thanks to the Internet.

This man's story really hammers home the truth that it doesn't matter how much money, material goods, or fame you have, what really matters is how you live your life day by day and how you treat your family and friends. As genealogists we talk about leaving a legacy for future generations. What an incredible legacy this man will be leaving.

What will your's be?
