Description of Jackie Robinson
Jackie Robinson had to fight of adversity, and racism from others and despite that he became one of the best baseball players in the world. He originally played for the minor leagues in UCLA. Then he got hired by the Brooklyn Dodgers, and played for them in the Major Leagues. All through this time he was severely harassed, and people didn't like that him, an African American, was playing in the Major Leagues. And despite this he persevered, and became one of the most famous baseball player that we still love today.

Eventually WWII came along and that caused Winston Churchill to enlist in the army yet again. And this might sound like Deja vu, but Winston Churchill's act of being such a good general and protecting his country naturally caused everyone to want him back as prime minister for a second term. Winston Churchill's definitely caused some things and effected even more.
