Apparently, people with ALS are so nice than when nurses or doctors get a grumpy patient with suspected ALS, they immediately rule out the ALS diagnostic. And they are usually right...
Morrie had ALS, and he was nice, and he advocated love. Mitch Albom learns to thaw and feel again when he renewed his acquaintance with his old teacher.
Of course, love is all - those are wise words spoken by many spiritual guides and especially suited to people who are hysterically running the rat race. It is probably nice to get to the point only love matters (without necessarily being at the door of death). However, I also wonder at the amount of self-repression and -inhibition that allows people to skip directly to the Love box. Apparently, such self-repression can also be a cause of ALS.
So yes, it's all nice, but I feel it all surfs a bit easily over the dark murky messy uneven and sometimes painful depths of life. Alright, so Mitch calls his sick brother - but why has his brother moved to Spain and cut off all communication with his family? THAT is something I'd be more interested in that somewhat superficial 'love-all' messages. Life is more complex than Tuesdays with Morrie.
