I watched The Last Lecture in several sittings, 15 or 20 minutes at a time. It is an amazing video. What really touched me while watching it was not so much that I knew Pausch had died or that he himself knew he was dying when he put the lecture together. Rather, I was saddened at the thought of his three children who are too young now to understand death or the content of the lecture, watching the same video when they are older and realizing what an extraordinary man their dad was and how little time they had with him.

At least they will have had the video, comprehensive as it is, to help them understand their father's legacy. Some don't even have that luxury, for instance, soldiers dying in the line of duty while leaving behind days-old babies and grieving widows.
