What do you think is special about the teacher about the teacher-student relationship between Mitch and Morrie
Answers 1Add Yours
Morrie becomes a mentor for Mitch inside and outside of the classroom. Morrie becomes the catalyst for Mitch to discover what is important in life. Throughout his illness, Morrie displays a very positive mental attitude. He does not feel sorry for himself because his body is slowly deteriorating. He looks at the positives in his life and the things he is still able to do. His positive attitude inspires Mitch to examine re-himself, his motives for doing things and the joy of simply being alive. As he reflects back on his life, Morrie realizes he purpose was to educate and he does it until the day he dies. This pushes Mitch to realize he is fulfilling his purpose in life (journalism) and the purpose of re-connecting with his brother.
