Oreo is our little creampup emotional support dog.

But Tuesdays With Morrie is another thing entirely.

It is a memoir by American author Mitch Albom about a series of visits Albom made to his former sociology professor Morrie Schwartz, as Schwartz gradually dies of ALS. The book topped the New York Times Non-Fiction Bestsellers of 2000. It also was released as a 1999 movie starring Jack Lemmon. An unabridged audiobook was also published, narrated by Albom. The appendix of the audiobook contains several minutes of excerpts from audio recordings that Albom made in his conversations with Schwartz before writing the book.

In Tuesdays With Morrie,” Morrie was a teacher that had an endless amount of love for his job. He made connections with many of his students, and saw many of them as his friends. He and his student, Mitch, had become extremely close with one another. Years passed by and Mitch graduated, unfortunately losing touch with his beloved teacher. While he is living his own live, Morrie has entered a life long struggle. He has been “diagnosed with ALS, and not given very long to live” (Albom, 46). The moment Mitch gets word of this, he knows that he needs to meet with him and catch up before it’s too late. The two decide to meet every Tuesday. During these gatherings, Morrie teaches Mitch lessons that he could not possibly receive from anyone else. He tells him of his entire life, along with his mistakes, and his new found discoveries. His words change Mitch and all of his previous beliefs.

This teacher has given his student the greatest gift of all, the gift of wisdom.
