Mitch Albom was a mid 30's Detroit sports reporter tied up in his 1,000 tasks per day and struggle to start a relationship with his girlfriend, Jeanine. When he's turns on CNN to see his former college professor, Morrie Schwartz, telling the world of his recently discovered illness, Lou Gehrig's disease. This disease causes muscles to gradually stop working, in Morrie's case feet up, basically marking your death on a calendar for you.

Mitch does all he can to visit Morrie in Boston. Originally planning a one-time goodbye, Morrie gets to Mitch with his broad teachings of, not death, but life itself and begins to make Morrie a priority, visiting him every Tuesday.

I will recommed this movie, or book, for any child, teen, or adult. It will put you to tears when you remind yourself that this moving story is based on a real life tragety.
