Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
despite the title, this book is actually incredibly thought provoking and better described by the author as being about "the horror of being alive in a world where atrocities happen". worth the read if you've got the stomach.
