About This Episode
How would “Tuesdays With Morrie” have ended up if it took place during this pandemic? If Mitch and Morrie met virtually, through a computer screen, instead of in person every Tuesday, sitting close to one another? That’s the question Mitch brings to this week’s show. With students and teachers meeting daily over the Internet, how does this affect the students? The teachers? The learning process as a whole? Can learning be the same without face-to-face interaction and human touch? Would Mitch and Morrie’s meetings have worked virtually? No touch, no wiping tears off Morrie’s face – no nuances to share with the reader. The world will get back to normal one day. But until it does, we have to wonder, how will the virtual worlds we’ve built for the last 7 months affect us all in the long run?

I enjoyed this a lot but yeah having things virtual today would not be anything like it was when I went to school. I had one of my English teachers that lived down the road from me. I had been to her house a few times.She always liked that when I and a couple of my friends would go there. I always had many complements from her and other teachers throughout school. Circumstance had always left me without much success and a more fulfilling life. I had to move quite a few times and never had many opportunities. I had to work and survive .I don’t regret things. It is what it is. I moved forward many times . I still move forward during these times that we are all in.
