It’s been falling for a very long time. The floor creaks and there are some rooms that have no roof. I have been trying to repair the pipelines for 3 weeks but I still can’t do it and thus we have no water. Every day I wake up early in the morning and go to a near river to gather water so we can bath and eat and clean. Every 2 weeks I need to harvest enough crops so I can deliver good food to the King. One year, the King gave me a bible as recognition of my work and it is now one of my most valued possessions. I work almost all day under the sun’s ray gathering the cattle and harvesting crops until the moon comes up, then I get inside and enjoy the best part of my day which is having dinner gathered with my whole family at the table. This month’s work has been very hard, more than usual. There has been little to no rain and 5 cows have gotten away on the night. I don’t think I will have enough food to deliver to the king on the end of the week, but I am doing my best. I haven’t been able to sleep for 2 days because of the pressure. I’ve heard stories of other farmers that also deliver food to the king that have not been able to gather enough food and some guards arrive at their homes and beat them up along with their families. I fear for the health of my family and that is what keeps me going every time I get too tired to continue with my work. I hope everything goes well. Although I don’t know how to read, I always keep my bible close to me whenever a situation like this occurs. I have trust in God that he will help me to gather the food.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
