Tuesdays with Morrie

October 23, 2007

If you knew you would die tomorrow, could you say you lived your life to the absolute fullest, or would you have regrets? This year marks the 10th anniversary of the best-selling memoir of all time, Tuesdays with Morrie, and the author, Mitch Albom, remembers his former teacher and mentor's simple but important messages that have touched so many.
