- Concept : An MMT story always starts with 'Today' and ends with 'MMT.' All stories are limited to 300 characters. We would love to hear your story. So, what's got you thinking today?
- If your story isn't published on our homepage, please don't feel offended. We love reading all of your submissions, but we can't possibly publish them all. Note: If your MMT story gives us something to think about, it will be published.
For all of you that think this is a rude question, please read Tuesdays with Morrie. The question is not rude & worth asking. Death is funny that way. It changes you.
It tells the true story of sociologist Morrie Schwartz and his relationship with his students. Both the film and the book chronicle the lessons about life that Mitch learns from his professor, who is dying.
This quote really did make me think... it's true that we're all going to die one day, and yet it would be unbearable to think about dying every second of the day. The reason we can live our lives to the fullest is by not dwelling on the inevitable future. The pain of death is always in the back of our minds, and yet there is no way to pinpoint when and where it'll happen. That's why we must try to make the most of our time here, and try to do everything humanly possible to help others, make the fewest mistakes, live with the least amount of regret, and make a difference. What you spend your time doing while you have time is what defines you.
@lcl That book is AWESOME! I read it in high school for this Mystery of Suffering and Death course I took.
I definitely second that book recommendation for anyone, but especially for people who fear death or don't really know what kind of life they want to live.
Also this post is a perfect reminder of just how valuable every person's life is and how important it is to leave a benevolent mark on the world with the time we're given :)
