Good day Mr.Mitch Albom, I’m Danna Mae Quimpo a fifteen year old and a grade 9 student from Saint Michael’s College of Laguna in the Philippines. I’ve read your book Tuesdays with Morrie and it help me a lot in my beliefs of life and death. Also it gave me lots of lessons that everyone must know and must learn. By means of curiosity, I would like to ask you some question, How and where did you get the inspiration/s to produce a very spectacular book like Tuesdays with Morrie? Also, are you not afraid of dying? I hope you could response and read my message it would be a pleasure, thank you 😊💕
Simply, I wrote Tuesdays with Morrie to help Morrie pay his medical bills. I wasn’t expecting it to reach as many as it did, only enough to bring his family some relief. On another level, his story was one I felt compelled to do. I’m not sure why, but I know it was the right decision.
I am afraid of dying as much as any other person. Morrie’s wisdom just reminds me that my focus should be on the living, not the dying.
