(#NewEpisode: ‘Toxic Masculinity – Man up really just means shut up’ with @jomodity out now. Link in profile)
Morris “Morrie” S. Schwartz was a sociology professor at Brandeis University and an author. He was the subject of the best-selling book and later film Tuesdays with Morrie, which was written by Mitch Albom, a sportswriter who was a former student of his.
After seeing Morrie interviewed on Nightline with Ted Koppel, Albom started flying to Morrie’s home in Massachusetts from Detroit for Tuesday visits. Mitch had discovered that Morrie had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), a terminal neurological disease. After about fourteen visits Morrie finally lost his battle with ALS when it took his ability to breathe. Albom’s book is full of the lessons and wisdom that Morrie imparts to him in his final stage of life.
