He speaks as though they are all one. He says, “We are allowed to use citizenship to its full meaning. We are here today because we are tired. If we are wrong the Supreme Court and constitution is wrong. If we are wrong justice is a lie.” And he gets a standing ovation from his audience. He stood erect, confident, spoke loud and clear, and with a purpose. It was a combination of the powerful grip of his voice, the articulation of his words, and the language he used.

    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.
