Dear Mr. Albom,
I just finished reading Tuesdays with Morrie. I read it all in one night because I just couldn’t put it down! When I was reading the last few pages, it hit me: I had a Morrie of my own. Maybe my experience with her wasn’t quite so profound, but hey, I’m only in high school anyway. The Morrie in my life was my first grade teacher, Mrs. Kemerer. She was my very favorite teacher. She was kind but firm and very caring. After reading Tuesdays with Morrie, I really wished that I could call her and talk with her about life. Unfortunately, that’s no longer possible, as she lost the fight to breast cancer a few years after I had her as a teacher. The saddest part is that she had a young son, about three years younger than me. Until reading this story, I had all but forgotten about her. This story made me realize what an impact she had on me. Thanks for writing an inspiring book!
