Mitch visits Morrie. He wants to record his conversations on a tape recorder, so he can have his life lessons. Mitch wrote down a list of the subjects that he wants to talk to Morrie about. They are death, fear, aging, greed, marriage, family, society, forgiveness, and a meaningful life. Nightline had came back and did another interview/story on Morrie. Morrie talked about his childhood. His mother died when he was young. His father was in and out of work, his brother got sick with polio. They were poor, and he was trying to figure out a job that he would make money, and never had to live being poor again. He decided that he could not be a doctor, or a lawyer, and he decided that he wanted to become a teacher. Morrie discussed death the fourth tuesday he had came to visit.
