3. Julia “Butterfly” Hill sat in Luna for two years. She says that everyone has their own symbolic tree to sit in. What’s yours ? Is there an issue with which you have been actively involved? If so, what was/is it, what have you done and learned, and will you continue to work on that issue? If not, what kind of issue (if any) could motivate you to get involved? Why? 4. Lois Gibbs and the other homeowners at Love Canal had no idea that their neighborhood was built on a chemical dump. Go to the EPA and/or DEP websites and look for two or three toxic waste sites (Superfund sites) closest to your home (or, here the closest to our campus). How far away are they from you? How many of them had you known about before? How much do you know about them? How does that make you feel, and what are the larger lessons to be learned from your search, do you think – e.g., how much do you think most people know about their proximity to toxic waste sites? 5. Lois Gibbs was a totally unremarkable individual when she first read about Love Canal, though it might be related to her children’s health problems, and started asking other residents about their families’ health. She was a 27 year old high school graduate who had been a grocery store clerk. Her activism in Love Canal showed that in fact she was a very remarkable person. How many others do you think have such untapped talents and abilities that may or may not be brought out under the right conditions? What are the implications of this fact?

    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.
