Thien Do 7127 Alcott Manor L.n Richmond, TX 77407 December 3, 2018 Greek Olympian Council of Gods 0000 Ambrosia Rd. Olympus Mt, 99999 Dear Olympus most high: It was ordained by your order that the earth, and the fruits which it bore, should be left in the care of the farmers, so that one day, when they blossomed, they could be yielded to the almighty gods.

How then, can we continue to make our occasional sacrifice and daily worship to you gods, whose power we fear and whose statue we venerate, if, by an utter careless action, all our fruits were extinguished from the earth? How then, can we allow that mischievous Phaeton to persist in Tartarus unpunished, while all the weight of justice is on him?

    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.
