True story behind Tuesdays with Morrie: Dying man held weekly 'alive funerals' for himself, October 24, 2022
When Morrie Schwartz, a former professor at Brandeis University, learned that he was dying from Lou Gehrig's disease in 1995, he did not lay down and die. Instead, the teacher, from Newton, Massachusetts, used his impending demise as a chance to help others come to terms with their own endings. He began holding weekly gatherings at his house, which he referred to as 'living funerals,' in which he discussed learning to live while starring death in the face. The meetings soon caught the attention of Boston Globe journalist Jack Thomas, who wrote a profile on Morrie in the newspaper in March 1995. Morrie was then invited on the show Nightline - and when one of his former students, Mitch Albom, came across the TV segment, he reached out to Morrie. Mitch began attending Morrie's weekly discussions, and wrote a memoir about it, which was then turned into a movie; Morrie passed away in November 1995.
