Essential Questions
1. What can we learn from reading this book?
Wow, try "What CAN'T we learn from reading this book?". Morrie covers so many things that we don't usually think of, yet they are essential to how we live our everyday lives. We learn about the importance of family, caring for others, forgiving, our culture, and love. In reading this book, you get a unique perspective on life from someone who is the living dead and isn't afraid to talk about the avoided topics, like death.

2. What do you value most in life?
I'd like to say that I value everything with true value, like God, family, and friends. Although I myself may not be completely consumed by it, when I look at others it is hard not to judge them how the world tells me to. This is one area I've recently been working on. People always say that it's what is on the inside that counts, but many times this is extremely hard to do.

3. Who are the people that influence you the most in your life?
Wow, there are just so many people that influence me in my life. I'm really lucky to have people in my life that care about me. My family has definitely influenced me more than anyone else. After that, probably my older friends like Charlie and Virginia. And ofcourse, the friends my age that I don't have the time to list :) I owe a lot to all of these people for them helping me to become the person I am today.

4. What is life's greatest lesson?
Some people won't agree with me, but life's greatest lesson is that earth is not our home, so why focus on it? On of my friends put it like this. Your whole life is a very, very , very ,very, very thick book, and our life on earth is just the preface. The preface of the book effects the rest of the book, so in the preface you want to get things right! It's hard to imagine how many things we focus on that really don't matter in eternity.
