3 rd Paragraph: Martin Luther Ling Jr. and Odysseus have very similar journeys, but are also different. MLK does not have much of a physical journey. The most physical part of MLK’s journey was when he was beaten or arrested. However, Odysseus had a very physical journey that endured all of his strength. For example, Odysseus had to battle Cyclops and he physically beat him by “stab [bing] his chest where the midriff packs the liver.” (221) The other part of Odysseus’ journey is very emotional. He is very emotional about the journey because he has not seen his children and wife in twenty years. His kid was only two years old when he left; now he is twenty-two and a grown man. Unlike Odysseus’ emotional journey, MLK is fighting for something that he deeply cares about. MLK grew up with little rights and he wanted to change it.

    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.
