already started to build a new city in Crete. For the overall good of the community, Aeneas halted every activity and went. Now I shall mention, Aeneas told his story to Dido and his audiences. A rainstorm occurred when Dido and Aeneas went hunting, forcing them to seek shelter in a cave. Let me remind you, praetor, jurymen, and civilians, that my client, Aeneas, is a widow and since then had not broken any vows. It is true he yielded to the desires of human nature, but if you allow me to proceed, I shall redeem my client’s honor. After such acts of human nature, the gods told my client to go to Italy as soon as possible. My client was deeply remorseful to leave his newly founded love and journey to Italy. Yet, the last message from Mercury told him he must immediately travel to Italy and when he did, he sacrificed his new love for the greater good of his people. Through all these perilous events that occurred in his life, my client still continued to uphold his valor and fight the overwhelming Greeks. He pushed passed the sorrow of losing his wife and guided his people to safety. He followed the instructions of the gods and sailed through the devastating sea. He left his newly found love solely to obey the will of the gods. Now let me ask you my friends, how can you consider my client a dishonest man?

    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.
