fact that they are losing something precious to them, as I had did a couple of days ago. That whole night I had uneasy feeling. I felt that something wasn’t right about Paul going to prison for life. But then I thought, isn’t that what he deserved? He killed both my son and wife, so he had to pay in some way. A few days later my anger wore off a bit, and I was starting to feel a little better. At this point, I really thought about the Paul case. Should this young boy really lose his entire life for something he didn’t do on purpose? I asked myself, “Am getting any ‘revenge’ or ‘getting even’ by him to going to prison?” I thought about it really hard. The next say I had to go back to court. I saw Paul, and he had come up to me to apologize. He was crying his eyes out as he repeatedly kept saying, “Mr. Gardner I’m really sorry I didn’t mean to do it.” I responded by embracing him as if he were the son I had lost and saying, “It’s ok, it’s ok.” After seeing his state, all my anger for him dissipated into thin air. In response to my insistence, prosecutors agreed to plea bargain for Paul, resulting in him getting only a year in jail, and 10 years probation instead of life sentence.

    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.
