Tuesday with Morrie
Our Fear of Death
Life is a class, from the day we came to the day we leave. In this class, we learn to learn, learn to live, learn to accept relationships, learn to face death, and learn to adapt to this long and fancy journey of life.

Tuesday with Morrie can help us realize it before hand.
