Living fully into this life and the next

Although I have admired Oprah Winfrey for years for her persistence in life, her thirst for knowledge and the range of topics covered on her syndicated TV show I have not taken the time to actually watch the show.

By wonderful chance, I watched a repeat of Monday's airing. This special show was presented by Dr.Mehmet Oz, a physician and regular contributor to her program. Under a recurring segment dubbed Healing Body and Soul this episode is entitled 'Confronting Death'. It featured two people who will undoubtedly die soon. The second profile was of Professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Pausch stood up in Oprah's studio and recreated the last lecture he gave at the University in September. Professor Pausch is dying from pancreatic cancer and probably has only a few months to live.

His personal testimony is breathtakingly eloquent and inspirational. I cannot encourage you enough to read the interview and/or watch his testimony by going to:, go to 'This week on the show' then click on Monday, Oct.22. I was awestruck by the second interview "A dying professor's emotional final lecture". Professor Pausch has given us his wisdom on the precious gift of living fully into each day. I guarantee that his grace filled words will touch your heart.
