    I think these resources are very useful and important for students today. Unfortunately, our children start forgetting the great deals are done by our ancestries. We live in the world where things are getting easier each day. I mean there are no difficulties in doing homework, ordering shoes from another words` part, even when you need a report for your lab classes, for example, you can easily get it from the web. I like this article because it reminds us and our children the main points in life.
