I cried when Randy Pausch died. It was

I cried when Randy Pausch died. It was the first time I wept for someone who I have never met, and although I have never met him, I feel like I know him very well. Why is it that the best people in the world are taken from us so early? randy Pausch: You inspired me to be a better person and never take anything for granted. I wish I will one day meet a man as good as you! I am hoping that I do not get any rude and immature comments on this, but oh well, it needs to be said anyway. And if you don't know who he is, google him.

  • To the first comment: The reason why Randy Pausch stood out to me is because he reminded me so much of my grandfather who died from cancer after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He was also a great and inspiring man, and when I saw Prof. Pausch"s last lecture, I was instantly intrigued. I am not saying that he is the only one who has ever been through something like this, but this man happened to touch me on a very deep level. I felt like I KNEW him, and so that is why I cried for him. Sorry about the people in your family with cancer though.

  • This is not a heartless comment, my family has dealt with cancer as well, but I celebrate anyone who has the courage to make each day the best they can make it.
    There are many people who strove to make the best of their life when they became terminally ill, celebrate all of them, not just one guy.
