It's amazing how much of an impact one man's speech had on so many people. It's really too bad that we had to learn about him because of a disease that takes way too many young, wonderful people. May his family find comfort in this difficult time knowing that he's not suffering any longer.

Oh QS, thanks so much for sharing the link to YouTube. What a wonderful, inspiring man. I watched his lecture and was so impressed by his hopeful spirit, his quick mind, his sense of humor. So sad that he is gone. I do hope his family is comforted by the influence he will continue to have on helping people realize their dreams.
