About This Episode

Sudden death. It’s nothing we ever prepare for, nor is it the sort of death most people think about when they picture themselves at the end of their lives. On today’s Tuesday People episode, Mitch Albom shares a harrowing story of his past two weeks spent in Haiti, at the same time the country’s president was assassinated. With martial law being declared, borders closed and a mandatory lockdown issued, the outcome for all was uncertain. Mitch remembered the Buddhist story that Morrire shared about the bird on the shoulder. Every day you ask the bird, “Is today the day that I die?” If the bird says yes, you must ask yourself if you are prepared. Are we ever prepared? How do we know when we are ready? Please join us for this very important episode.
