Can’t Forget Motor City Thesis:  An argument for the retrospective and respectful look at ones roots and origins. As one grows,  small details become grandiose in the eye of the present moment. Clemens says that those  details shape us and give us the respect for where we have come. His last line confirms that  everything we have been a part of becomes a part of us. Author’s Purpose: The purpose of this is to enlighten and in some ways inspire the reader.  Using a chronological  progression from the beginning of his life to the end, he punctuates his “story” with an ending that  gives us pause.  We are encouraged to look back on his life, and our own, like the author did  himself and take simple pleasures from our lives and see how they turned us into what we are

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
