speech because you can't please everyone and someone is bound to disagree with you. I hope with this essay that I can create new perspective on why animals are so beneficial. I plan to also incorporate how even adopting a troubled animal could make for a great companion because it lets the animal and their human learn and grow together. Not only can I potentially create understanding for just how important an animal's role is in someone's life, but I can also possibly cause people to think about the benefits of adopting animals over buying puppies from mills and breeders.

    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.
