I'm viewing it as a dissection of our society and an analysis of how we interact with each other as human beings.

You can try to test it out. See what affects you. Watch the news, or read articles of people dying and see how it impacts you. Now think about how a friends death or pain affects you.

    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.
