Please take a look at this link!
You can even listen to the Last Lecture given
by Randy Pausch, a computer science professor who
in 2007 had pancreatic cancer and had only a few
months to live. He talks about "achieving your
childhood dreams" not dying. Little did he
know this would be his last lecture.
The book "The Last Lecture" would make
a great gift for the high school or college graduate!
