Bringing You News About People Who Never Give Up
Editor's Note -
People naturally run into problems throughout life. It's human nature. But it takes a resilient person to bounce back from a challenge in life. Throughout this newsletter you will read about people who have faced what seems like a mountain of adversities. Not knowing what would lie ahead, they tunneled through that mountain and made a pathway for others who might face the same challenges. You will hear about Winston Churchill's speech about never giving up. A ladies basketball team that is face with problem after problem. Two boys who each help each other, even though they both have a physical disability. How Eleanor Roosevelt took her problems and turned them into something positive. And the story of Jackie Robinson, who paved a road and caused a ripple in American history. Not all of these stories are happy, I'm afraid. There will be fights. Guns. Racial slurs. But even cloudy skies have a positive side. I hope that you walk away from this inspired. I did.

Winston Churchill is a well known and beloved historical figure. He was born on November 30, 1874. His childhood was troubled since his parents were never around and his nanny became like a mother to him. Young Churchill did poorly in school and frequently caused trouble and ruckus. As Churchill grew older he was accepted into many prestigious schools and the Royal Military College Sandhurst. Churchill graduated at the top of his class and was given commission as a cavalry officer.
Throughout his life he has shown bravery, perseverance, and leadership. For example in 1899, when Churchill was a soldier in the Boer War in South Africa, he was shot at and captured for about a month, then escaped and miraculously made it to safety. He also strengthened the British Navy during 1911 to 1914 in England. However, he is known for the speech Never Give In, Never, Never, Never. During this time England was in WWⅡ, and churchill’s speech inspired people not to give in and submit during to war.
Winston Churchill once said, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense.” From this quote, we know that Churchill didn’t want anyone to give in, no matter how great the adversity, he wanted them to persevere through this hardship. As you can see, Winston Churchill is a well known and beloved historical figure.
