It was Christmas day; a night where joy and cheer are supposed to fill the air but today everything felt...dead. I remember when Mario, my husband, and I would play in the snow all day like we were schoolchildren and bake and eat till we could no more. I remember one particular Christmas all too well. “ Oh come on Marzia, the ice won’t hurt you”. “ Easy for you to say Mr. I practically live in the snow!” I said aggravatedly. It was the year 1941 before the war and before we were married, he had just bought me ice skating shoes and I for one had never been ice-skating before. “ I’m scared”, “Don’t be, I’ll be here to catch you before you fall, or will I?” “ Oh hush!” I proclaimed as I slid onto the ice, breathtaking and slowly moving toward Mario over the crisp white ice.

The water stung as it hit my face and body, I tried to swim up but my clothes had held me down. Then I felt a hand grab mine and pulled me up to the surface.

    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.
