... it there way” you are naïve. Your pity is scorned, and it is hard to have an open heart to a closed mind. I see Morrie’s light though. Build your community of love and understanding around you, not to cloister yourself from the world, but to support your spirit. When Morrie says, “I’ve got so many people who have been involved with me, in close intimate ways. And love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.”(Albom, 133) Morrie’s adopted culture and community is the intimate people involved in Morrie’s life. Love going on after you die conjures the idea that the memories and feelings you leave behind with others will influence the culture you built and the culture at large. Like Morrie, I want the friends I leave behind share in the happiness I have found and the joy I helped create.

- When my parents first told me that it would be a good idea for me to read Tuesdays With Morrie, my perception of the memoir was that it was an account of an old man dying.
