In the book Tuesdays With Morrie, Morrie shares his thoughts with Mitch which leaves Mitch wondering all these new things but hasn't found an answer. One example, Morrie believes that living in a world with children is an experience you can't have with other family or friends. Family is another form of security and nothing else can you you that type of security (Not money, fame, work, etc.) Mitch thinks about what Morrie says and wonders what it would be like in Morrie's place without family and children and how unbearable it would be. Family is only one thing on the list Mitch still has questions about. Unanswered Questions is an icon that is a key part in the book because in every lesson Mitch learns but has more questions to ask, and even questions that may never have an answer.
Evidence #1:: "It's what I missed so much when my mother died- what I call 'spiritual security'-knowing that your family with be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work."
Evidence #2: "Yet, when I looked at Morrie, I wondered if I were in his shoes, about to die, and I had no family, no children, would the emptiness be unbearable?"
An important part in the book, Tuesdays With Morrie is when Mitch goes to visit Morrie after many years of no form of communication and he sees how much Morrie suffers. Morrie is paralyzed from his legs due to his illness, ALS. He arrives at Morrie's house in West Newton, Boston in 1995 a few days after the "Nightline" show. He finally reunites with Morrie after sixteen years and he was nervous about seeing him and noticed the change in his thin, white hair and his aging face. Mitch remembers how he once was when he was in college being taught by "Coach" (Morrie.) Mitch also noticed how Morrie shook and struggled with simple activities like picking up his food with a fork. As he is also questioned, he realizes how his life came to be and how he didn't fulfill his dream. This was the exposition in the moment and Morrie shows no response to the moment besides being the same professor from long ago. I think that Morrie will inspire others to not fear death and that Mitch will learn to accept death and learn how its like to truly love life and do what makes him genuinely happy.
Tuesdays With Morrie, written by Mitch Albom, a biographical novel, is about an old professor, and a former student of his reuniting after many years of the student graduated from college. Morrie, one of the main characters, is a professor who struggles with ALS. He is very fearless and accepts the idea of death which is one of his final lessons as a teacher. Morrie is a static character, always hopeful, accepting, understanding, and inspiring to many. The other main character, Mitchell, also known as Mitch, is a former student or Morrie's who made a promise to Morrie that he'd keep in touch. He didn't keep in touch for many years but remembered about his promise to Morrie after hearing about him on the "Nightline" show. He visits Morrie and remembers all the good times with his professor. Mitch seems like a stressed, but still happy character. He is a dynamic character, he becomes busy and then he later becomes his caring and genuine, his old self.
The screeling mysteriously appeared in the indoor garden and as said earlier, Chase, Rachel, and Zedd were quite fortunate to have escaped. This caused many people to be injured and even killed. Many are being cared for and others are traumatized, paralyzed in shock. Chase nearly was killed by the screeling but as a team, soldiers and Zedd managed to stop the screeling. Chase gets medical attention from the healers and his new daughter, Rachel is worried. The conflict is resolved by cornering the beast and pushing it into a pool which Zedd turned into ice then once the screeling was in, it would be there for what would seem forever. Zedd and Chase wondered if many more screelings or even worse creatures would be lurking around them.
Evidence: Page 14 "The impact knocked the screeling into the pool. Hissing steam rose upon the contact of flame and water. Instantly, Zedd ignited the air above the water, using all the heat in the water to feed it. The wizard's fire sucked all the warmth from the water. The entire pool froze into a solid block block of ice.
Evidence: Page 15 "The big man's blue eyes were wide. "The screelings are loose?" he whispered. "Wizard Zorander... you can't be serious."
The main characters so far in the story are Zedd, a powerful wizard, Chase, a fearless boundary warden, and Rachel, a somewhat brave child of Chase. What I have read has told me that they were chased down by a screeling, a deadly predator from the underworld. They all find a safe haven of some sort but the screeling knows the ways of the humans by now and how to hunt them down. Many in the hall where the three made it to were hurt, severely injured or even dead. In the text, its states that Rachel was a very mature child for her age in Zedd's eyes. In recent books, they explain how Chase was feared by many and Zedd was powerful and worshiped by many in D'Hara, the land after passing the boundary. I can not determine if all characters changed over time but Rachel has become a braver and much more mature than she was recently and Zedd became older and more fragile, yet still wise. Chase has not shown any significant throughout the story.
Evidence Pg. 10 "Zedd was impressed by her. He had never seen one so young use her head as well as she did.
Evidence Pg. 21 "'My lady, I'm an old man. I've never had any talent for sewing and my hands shake something awful. I'm afraid I would do more damage than I would repair, but if you insist, I will try my best...'"
