A Letter To A Deceased Person You Wish You Could Talk To

Vibrant speakers. I just can't get enough of that. There are people out there that once I start listening to them, I don't want them to stop.

But I never really have the chance to talk to these people. I feel that if given the chance, a conversation would be great. Maybe one day I will have the opportunity, but sadly, not everyone gets to stay around long enough. 

I've heard your Carnegie Mellon Last Lecture several times over the years. It was an exception to the standard. You weren't retiring from a full career of education. You were gonna die of pancreatic cancer.

This upbeat lecture, on achieving one's childhood dreams. That's the lecture you gave. Just, wow. I don't know how you could do that. But you did. And if I could, I would like to talk to you, Randy Pausch.

  1. He would be a good person to talk to. Truly inspirational what I have heard of him speaking.

    I'd write the letter to my mom; I'd like to speak to her one more time.
