[ # ] Live for the Moment is the most inspirational show you will watch
January 28th, 2010 under CBS

When I first heard read about CBS’s Live for the Moment, I thought the concept was sick and depressing, but then I watched it and I thought it was the most inspirational show I ever watched. LFTM was described as a bucket list show for people who know they will not have much longer to live. When you read that you think the show is going to be depressing, and even though I cried at times throughout the show, I did not walk away from watching it depressed but instead I felt inspired.
Tonight’s episode at 8p features Roger Childs, a 41 year old happily married father of two sons who was diagnosed with ALS and given around 2 years to live. But instead of giving up, he is living life to the fullest. Jeff Probst and Mark Burnett teamed up with him to help him do things he has only dreamed of. They took him to Kennedy Space Center, he got a tour from Buzz Aldrin and watched a space shuttle launch with his whole family. Then he got his pilot’s license. Finally he went skiing with his best friend, something he wasn’t sure he would ever be able to do after his diagnosis. Finally his family and friends gathered for the most amazing part of the show and what happens there will inspire to change the way you live. It will make you want to do more with your life and not waste it. Roger Childs is a true inspiration and we can all learn from him, so make sure to watch his story tonight on CBS at 8p.
On a side and personal note, a few days after I watched this episode my cat got very sick and I had to make the toughest decision I ever had to make and this show helped me get through it. It made me put everything in perspective and helped me get through her death. So if that doesn’t go to show just how powerful this show is, I don’t know what will.
Thank you to CBS, Jeff Probst and Mark Burnett for doing this show and to Roger Childs and his family thank you for sharing your story with us.

    So did you take your cat to Kennedy Space Center?

  • I went to high school with Roger and it’s amazing to see how he’s made something positive out of what he’s been dealt. He was just some guy in my class, but now he’s an inspiration.
