Inspiring Videos

I was chatting with a friend earlier on when she showed me the video of Randy Pausch. He was a Computer Science professor at Carnegie Mellon University and passed away from pancreatic cancer after battling for many months. Randy Pausch gave a 'final lecture' to over 400 students at the University. Some of you might have watched or heard of it but for the benefit of those who hadn't, here it is.

'Last Lecture' by Randy Pausch

I hope this video has reminded you about the important things in life. :)

The next video I would greatly recommend is by this pianist better known as, 'The Four Fingered Pianist' (Lee Hee Ah). She came to Singapore in 2007 for a one night only performance and I was lucky to be there. As she moved her fingers along the keyboard and played those beautiful tune, I was close to tears. Somehow, it was her spirit that had touched me. Watch this video and you'll know what I mean. :)

Lastly, I would like to share this short video with everyone. Funny but inspiring. :)

Never Give Up!

I watched the Randy Pausch's last lecture over a year ago and it had me in tears :( but it also was very inspiring. We need people to remind us what really matters.
