"A Great Teacher .. To The Very End", 21. Dezember 1999
TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a beautiful, true story filled with such wonder and wisdom. Although it is a "no holds barred" account of the impending ALS-inflicted death of Professor Morrie Schwartz .. the unselfish happiness that "oozed" from this gracious, gentle man .. far outweighs the inevitability of his death. His outlook on life .. and death .. is astounding! The story was chronicled on Nightline with Ted Koppel .. and in a TV movie that aired in early December of 1999. His philosophy teachings and love of life is evident in every page. He just plain "loved people" .. especially his students. He was kind enough to share the most precious gift any of us can ever give .. he gave "himself" .. to anyone and everyone who was willing to listen .. and that would share with him in return. He .. as I do .. believed that "sharing your love" and "a little of your time" can make "all the difference" in people's lives .. and that you will be overwhelmed with "what comes back" to you! He was a great teacher .. to the very end.
I was so touched by this book .. I read it in its entirety .. in one sitting. I hope you will "do yourself a favor" and pick up a copy .. if you haven't already.
