I believe that when you are constantly learning and adapting to new things, then you’re leaving your mind open to considering other terms of justice as the correct way things should be done .

If we are ever going to determine what is just and who is deserving of what, we need to stop being too sensitive as to label things we don’t agree with as immoral .

    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.
