A few days ago, my dear friend Julie Iraninejad nominated me for the ALS ice bucket challenge! What is interesting, and I’m sure it’s no coincidence, is that I just finished reading the book ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ over the summer which is a beautiful and moving true story about a professor from Brandeis who died of ALS. His student, Mitch Albom, spent every Tuesday during the last few months of Morrie’s life learning from him life lessons about regrets, death, family, emotions, the fear of aging, marriage, culture and forgiveness (to name a few).
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was moved by how Morrie addresses each topic in such a real, no-nonsense way. Below the video I will share some of the advice in his book (so please scroll down to read them). So in honor of Morrie, I accept the challenge!
