Every once in a while I open the "forwards" that are sent to me. I'm frequently short of time, so when I do open them it is usually because I have writer's block or I need a couple minute break.
Today I watched this 11-min video called the Last Lecture. It's presented by a college professor who is dying, and is very inspiring.
So, in the event that you too don't open your forwards, I hope you take the time to watch this.
