Morrie as an Everyman Hero in Tuesdays with Morrie - heroes journey

Storyboard Text

  • Thesis
  • Even though Morrie is diagnosed with a devastating disease, he faces it with purpose, and finds a way to share his experiences beyond his death by working with Mitch on their “final thesis” together. He is afraid sometimes, but he acknowledges the fear, detaches, and doesn’t let it take over.
  • While Morrie has coughing fits that leave him gasping for air, and even as he becomes more weak, he still makes sure he is ready for Mitch every Tuesday to get his message and lessons onto the tape recorder. It is this sense of purpose that gives Morrie strength.
  • Morrie is a well-loved teacher, husband, and father to all who know him. He puts his family first, and even though his own father was a silent man, he made sure to shower his own sons with affection. He is honest and trustworthy, and he follows his heart, even if it means rejecting society’s standards about what is important.
  • Everyone gets an A!
  • Make love, not war!
  • During the Vietnam War, Morrie was so fiercely opposed to the war that he and other members of the sociology department at Brandeis gave their male students As so that they could keep their deferments. It may not have been ethical, but it was something that Morrie believed in strongly.
  • Morrie wants to delve into Mitch’s life and what is bothering him. He knows that Mitch is unhappy because he is unfulfilled by only focusing on his work. Morrie knows that Mitch's brother in Spain is battling cancer, and Mitch doesn’t know how to reach out to him. Morrie cares as much about Mitch’s struggles as he does about his own.
