A Moving Speech

Check out this article and video at the Wall Street Journal, about a dying professor's last lecture. His energy and enthusiasm for life, in the face of terminal illness, was really was the photo of his childhood room.

His thoughts on Disneyland -- one of the dreams he achieved was helping design a ride for Disney -- gave it added poignancy.

Narrated clips from the lecture are included at the WSJ site (subject link). The entire lecture can be found here. (I'm curious whether or not he delves into religious thoughts at any point in the full lecture...) I suspect the video will be making the rounds on the Internet for years to come.
