Do you know Morrie Schwartz? Well, in the memoir Tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom, Mitch and his old professor Morrie meet everty Tuesday and talk about anything they want. There are many aphorisms in this memoir, but what stood out to me the most is when Morrie asked Mitch, “What if today were my last day on earth?” In other words, if we were to pass away today, did we live life like we wanted it to be and or do we have any regrets? This aphorism applies to own life because at the end of last year, my grandfather was diagnosed with the same internal disease as Morrie, ALS. Ever since he was diagnosed with ALS, I try to spend every chance I get with my grandpa because if today is his last day, I want to say everything I feel to him before he passes away. Seeing that Morrie has the same disease as my grandfather, I would like to start talking with him about anything that I could learn and would be useful to me in my life, just like Mitch and Morrie did.
