Please explain who stood out to you the most. Who made you think about your own life? Who do you think made a huge impact on Eddie? And why?
I would say Tala was the most memorable for me. She actually told Eddie he had meaning in his life and why. Yes the first four explained a lot to Eddie but Tala told his that he was on earth to keep kids safe at the pier. It may not had been his dream job or what he wanted to see him self at after the war or before the war but he made a difference in children’s lives at the pier. If it wasn’t for him the little girl at the pier would had died. Yes the blue man died because of Eddie, but because of Eddie, someone lived to see another day.
When I read Tala say, “Not her hands, my hands. I bring you to heaven. Keep you safe.”
I honestly could not help but to cry. Mitch Albom touched me. I felt touched. The whole time I was reading the book I wanted to know myself if Eddie saved that little girl. And to hear Tala say those were her hands and that she brought him to heaven really made me happy. It was touching and beautiful. Eddie got to live on in heaven. Knowing the meaning of his life. His self worth. It made me feel really grateful to be alive.
It really did touch my soul.
Now its your turn.
Who did you feel was the most memorable person Eddie meet in heaven? And why?
