    Post Please Read And Give Me Your Comments

    This is a letter form essay to the author of Tuesdays with Morrie about the book. please give me your comments and correct any kind of grammar mistakes that this essay might have. Thank You

    Dear Mitch Albolm,
    I thought Iíd just write a letter to you and tell you how Tuesdays with Morrie changed my life.
    Why was Tuesdays with Morrie such a change in my point of view on life? Maybe because Morrieís point of view on life was so great that if one really listens to what Morrie has to say, one may realize that material objects are not the most important things in life. But what is important is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. And if we canít learn this lesson, Iím afraid thereís no hope for any of us.
    In a way, I feel that there is a connection between me and you. By saying this, I mean that both you and I served as an outlet in which a teacher could store his knowledge, while in two different senses, of course. I, like you, also have had a teacher had has taught me a life lesson, and her name is Ms. Linda Douglas. She taught me to always be the best that I can be and to never let anyone or anything stand in the way of my goals. We are still in contact today, and still maintain a wonderful friendship.
    Tuesdays with Morrie kind of mirrored my life in a way that Iím sure happens to almost everyone. When Morrie finds out that he has A. L. S. , he thinks to himself (as I do when things happen to me that I feel are devastating) shouldnít the world stop? Donít they know what has happened to me? But the world doesnít stop. It goes on as usual.
    One thing that I know is that if one were to tell me that Tuesdays with Morrie was a non-fiction book about an old man that gets a disease and meets regularly with an old student, I wouldnít have been interested. But reading this book has been such a great experience for me, that I am surprised at myself that I would even associate myself with a book of itís category.
    Tuesdays with Morrie showed me things about my world that I never noticed or paid attention to before. For instance, I never knew there was such a thing as A. L. S. before I read Tuesdays with Morrie. But one thing that I never would have known is that in the period of time that Morrie taught, the teachers decided to give everyone an A as an alternative to their students being drafted.
    Before I read Tuesdays with Morrie, I really wasnít all that sentimental toward old people who couldnít do much for themselves. But after reading it, I started wanting to help out at the senior citizens center that is near my house.
    Previous to reading Tuesdays with Morrie, I never wanted to go to church. This is due to two reasons: I thought church was boring, and I didnít want to spend a lot of time with my Grandma after church. Reading Tuesdays with Morrie has changed my perspective on both going to church, and spending some time with my grandma. After reading Tuesdays with Morrie I started to go to church and pray for people who are sick and their families.
    After church, I help my grandma do things like clean the house, rake the leaves, and take out the trash, since she is unable to do those things herself.
    Reading Tuesdays with Morrie has showed me how large the burden of ill senior citizens is.
    Before I read Tuesdays with Morrie, I thought that any non-fiction book would be the most boring kind of book I could ever read. I behaved very bad around my mother. We always used to get into fights and I would do whatever I could to annoy her. One time I even told her that when I grew up and she couldnít do certain things, I wouldnít be there for her. But after reading your book, I felt very bad about all of this. I really started trying to avoid fights with my mother and I always tried to be the most encouraging to my mother that I could be. I started to do things like ask her how her day was regularly because I know that that makes her feel better.
    Tuesdays with Morrie has truly changed my overall lifestyle and I am extremely glad that you wrote it. In a way I feel like God had planned for me to read this book.


    Sincerely,
    A. J. Watson

    are you, perhaps, going to give her a copy of this letter?

    BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT

    very perceptive and important.
