You don’t look well, she says, Neither do you, he says. My friends are all dying, she says. My friends are dying too. I’m afraid that when I die there will be no one left to say prayers at my grave, she says. It’s my fear, too, he replies And they sit and weep, each dropping tears onto the hands of the other, waiting for the other, that follows hard the heels of time.

    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.
