Jackie Robinson (Cause and Effect)

Racism and segregation has been around forever. And it will probably never go away. When Jackie Robinson came into the MLB he changed the way people look at African-American’s for the better. He was able to break the color barrier and pave the way for other black’s. But it wasn't that easy. He didn't have the luxury of being able to react. If he reacted to all the hate then it would prove to white's that black's shouldn't be able to play ball. But even through all the hate he was able to get through it. With the help of his family and the help of Branch Rickey he successfully broke the color barrier.

From all the amazing people above it is very clear what a little perseverance can do. When faced with adversity, one must not shy away, they should try to find a way to conquer it. When faced with an adversity one must know what they are trying to get to. If they don't all their work will be for nothing. If they know their goal all they need is a little from friends and they will discover a new part of themselves. With this new part they discovered they can do anything they set their mind upon. If they want to make a musical group they will know what it takes and they will meet that challenge. It just goes to show what a little determination and perseverance can do.
