Hi Mitch Albom. I am Roy S. Calicdan Jr. and I’m a student from the Philippines. I would like to ask you a question regarding your book. Among all of your masterpieces Tuesdays with Morrie captured my attention. Why did you offered such masterpiece to your professor?Is his teachings your foundation of your principles?Is his teachings your foundation of your principles? I hope you could answer my questions. Thank you in advance and God Bless.
Well, to answer your question, I think we have to turn it around. I didn’t offer a masterpiece to Morrie. It’s Morrie who offered the masterpiece to me. I wrote Tuesdays with Morrie to help Morrie and his family pay his medical bills. The book has resonated because of Morrie’s wisdom and teachings. Writing that book changed my life. I’m still learning from him every day, and it’s been my honor to share him with the world.
As he would be happy to learn, the teaching lives on for all of us.
