In the book Night, by Ellie Wiesel, is an autobiography about the author's experience and difficulties during the Holocaust that occurred during World War Two; however, in the book Tuesdays with Morrie, by Mitch Album, the story about a student visiting his old professor, who was diagnosed with ALS, and the days on which they met to discuss life. In both books, we are given lessons about how others interpret life and how it can be different for anyone. In the conclusions of both books, the authors give their readers the information of those affected by society and the fact of growing old. .
Reading Tuesdays with Morrie, the reader gains knowledge about Morrie's perspective of life, and how we shape our lives by doing the simplest of things. Morrie discusses many different topics presented to him by former student, Mitch; although, Morrie is currently suffering and on the road to death, he is not afraid to talk about the most freighting of topics faced in life. As the reader progresses in the book they learn of the seven themes, on which the two men talk about during their meetings, which occur on Tuesdays because Morrie and Mitch are Tuesday people. One of the topics spoken about is acceptance, the state of being accepted or of acceptance, this is where the first topic: How would Morrie react to Night, comes into play. Morrie believes that all people should be accepted no matter what the issue is at hand, because if one accepts themselves they should accept others. If we are, created equal and are suppose to treat others how we would like to be treated, why would people isolate a group of one ethnicity and attempt mass murder to try to erase that group of people? I truly feel that Morrie would read the book and when he would finish ask me the same thing as to why someone would that acceptable to do. .
Two more out of the seven themes discussed are love and happiness; however, throughout Night the story of a boy suffering and experiencing situations in which love is tested.
