This video is just absolutely amazing in every way. Dr. Pausch speaks about his illness in the beginning and does push ups in front of everyone to prove he still has it inside of him. I never would have guessed he was sick just by viewing this video, he does not look sick at all. Dr. Pausch speaks about his dreams, and goals in life. He lectures on that we all have "dreams" and "goals" in our life, and that it is up to every one of us to achieve such things in life. It's amazing how Dr. Pausch mentions to never give up on people. My parents never gave up on me on the tough days I had back in High School and some in College, when I just wanted to "quit" more so less to speak. I think we as future teachers should never give up on our students, we will all have bad days but never should we quit. Dr. Pausch believed in so much creativity among students. He really was an amazing individual. This video really did bring tears to my eyes because it was not only inspirational, but as well it was heartbreaking that such an amazing person was here on earth for such a short amount of time. I really wish more Professors were like Dr. Pausch. I plan to read his book and I keep "The Last Lecture" in my favorites now.
