Tuesdays With Morrie

Mitch Albom is the author of this beautiful memoir.  I have read several books by Mr. Albom, and I always enjoy the emotion that comes along with his quick witted style.  Get your hankies ready…..this is a commentary on dying.  Mr. Albom relates the tale of his favorite college professor, Morrie Schwartz.  Morrie is one of those great teachers that rarely comes along.  He is a teacher who embraces life and truly listens to his students.  Mitch Albom hugs it out with his professor at graduation…..and never looks back.  Fast forward 16 years; the author, by what can only be called the hand of fate, stumbles across his old teacher.  Who is suffering through the final stages of ALS.  Instead of finding a man feeling sorry for himself, he finds a man who is dealing with the disease with the utmost grace.  Morrie is an inspiration; he learns to take joy in the little things.  He also fights until his last breath to impart a message: “The most important thing is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”  Unless you are made from granite, you will read this book, fall a little in love with Morrie, embrace your life and those around you, and hopefully think about how you can make the world a better place.  If you are me, you will also sob like a giant baby and have a few minutes there where it was kind of hard to breathe.
