A Talk in Assembly - Tuesdays with Morrie.

Extracts from this document...


A Talk in Assembly Title: Tuesdays with Morrie Author: Mitch Albom Good morning everyone. I am so pleased to be invited here to give you a talk, and I'm going to talk with you about a very important aspect in life, which all of us have to face one day, and it's death. In case you don't know, I had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a brutal, unforgiving illness of the neurological system, which is taking away my last precious days. There is not much time left for me. It's obvious that I'm going to die quite soon. It's been common that we are afraid of death. We don't want to believe it that we try to ignore it. ...read more.


No one can guarantee what will happen after you fall asleep every night. That's what I do. Everyday, I ask myself, " Is today the day? Am I ready yet?" I am prepared and that's why I'm not in any sense afraid of dying. Knowing that we are going to die one day, we should try to live meaningfully. If we are notified somehow that today is going to be our last day, certainly there will be a lot of things that we want to do but haven't . So do what you want to do and be the person you want to be. Never have it delayed, or you might not have the chance to do it. ...read more.


If we can face and believe in death, we will do things differently and view them from a different aspect. There's no use to regret when we leave as we are already fully prepared and there is nothing to lose. Anyway, dying isn't that horrible. It might be the end, but also the beginning. Take flowers for an example, if they don't wilt, there won't be nutrients provided in the soil for the growth of a new plant. The giving up of something may bring good to another thing. Therefore, I truly hope that all of you can face death optimistically. Try to think it in a better way and do all you can to prepare for it. There isn't much time left. Remember, we never know what's going to happen next. Thank you. Very wise comments - clearly and thoughtfully expressed. I've underlined some mistakes. 17/20 ...read more.
