After two years in Kabul, the drought has finally ended. The Kabul River flows again. Laila and Tariq  rent a small house that Tariq is fixing up. In the mornings, Laila says prayers with Aziza and then  gets the kids ready for school. They all walk together to the orphanage where Aziza once lived,  which now, really is a school. Laila is a teacher there, and she and Tariq have been heavily involved  with renovating the building. On their way to school, Laila sees new signs of life sprouting throughout  Kabul — music in the air, saplings planted in yards.

    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.
