Hi Mitch Albom!! Im Martin from the Phil. I have read your book “Tuesdays with morrie” and it was a great book 🙂 In relation to the book, I would like to ask a question. What would be the traits/attitude that Morrie possessed which a normal person does not possess ? Hoping that you would be able to see this. Thanks in advance 😊
I would say Morrie had empathy in levels many don’t. It was an ultimate act of humility–to make others as important to him as his own self. It was how he was then able to take on other people’s suffering as compassionately he took on his own suffering. His only response to the suffering of others that he felt was the most human one: love.
If we could all do that, the world would be a much better place.
What quality do you think Morrie had that most others don’t, or not enough of?
