If something inspirational happens in my life it is because of Donna, Matt's co-worker (Katy's aunt). She gave Matt the book "The Last Lecture" to read. I have been wanting to read it and Matt is always busy so I read it.
Oh my, how I love this book. The author is Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and only had months to live. He was asked to give the annual "last lecture" at Carnegie Mellon. The lecture was a u-tube favorite and was shown on many talk shows. If you haven't seen it, you MUST (www.thelastlecture.com).
Anyways, the book builds off and around the last lecture. It is an amazingly, inspirational book about living from a man who was dying.
