In "The First Tuesday We Talked About the World", Mitch notices a stack of newspapers. He asks Morrie why he continues to read them. Morrie says that just because he is dying it doesn’t mean he doesn't want to know what else is going on in the world. He feels more compassion for people suffering around the world, because he is suffering too. People suffering in Bosnia make him cry. He cries talking about it, saying he cries all the time now about other people. He notices that Mitch isn't ok with men crying and says he's going to loosen him up and make him realize its ok to cry.
