My daughter had to read this book during her exchange programme at NAU. She told me about it over the phone, as my best friend also suffered from ALS. When I visited my daughter last March, on the day we arrived we got the phone call from Holland that my friend had died that very same day. On a Tuesday...
Reading Morrie's account of how he coped with this terrible disease was a blessing in disguise. I used to be so angry, so furious that this horror was happening with my friend. My friend was not able any more at the end to express herself, to let people around her know what she was feeling, thinking. That's not typical of ALS, but in her case it even worsened her disease.
Morrie's life-lessons are a gift to us all. To be so ill, and at the same time to be so wise, if only that would happen to us all!
