SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS 2 Abstract Throughout history, conflicts and fights have been observed in population because of difference between people.

    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.
