NOTE: The following dates from 2010. It is a piece that I recorded for WAMC Northeast Public Radio. Its title is: “The Impact of Violence.” ______________________________________________________________ Watching the unfolding story of the recent earthquake in Haiti serves as a sobering reminder of the impact of bloodshed on individuals. Whether that bloodshed is the result of a force or nature, cruel fate, or the selfishness and stupidity of humankind, those who are victims of it end up with deep psychological wounds that may never completely heal. Translating all this to the movies, contemporary audiences regularly sit through so many films that feature oodles of violent imagery. Yet these films rarely if ever acknowledge the EFFECT of that violence, the emotional toil it takes on survivors. This explains my fascination with two current films. The first is A SINGLE MAN, an eloquent drama about an English professor who must deal with his deep sense of loss upon the death of his beloved in a car crash.

    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.
