VIP in Tuesdays With Morrie

There are two main characters in Mitch Albom's book, one would be the teacher Morrie Schwartz, and the other would be Mitch Albom himself.  Morrie Schwartz loved to dance and was a very active person.  He went to the YMCA to swim and was very energetic.  He was a happy person and never let anything stop him from living his life to the fullest even though he was diagnosed with ALS.  He continued to teach, inspire, and have others look up to him as a true example of a leader.  The other character would be Mitch Albom.  Albom ended up writing for the Detroit Free Press and married a girl named Janine after seven years of dating.  He wrote the book and was a former student of Mr. Schwartz.  When Morrie was diagnosed with the disease, Albom would go to his house on Tuesdays and discuss everything from life to death.  They talked about love, family, and emotions.  These discussions between these two characters impact their lives and cause them to truely be the main characters.  If it weren't for these encounters, the book would have never been written and there would be no story about Albom and Schwartz.
