The Journey Through Hardships
If you had your arm bitten off how would you feel? Bethany Hamilton got attacked by a shark while surfing and was rushed to the hospital when she woke up her arm was gone. She was told that she couldn’t surf ever again. People thought that this shark attack ruined her future,but what they didn’t know was that Bethany had faith and believed that God did this to her for a reason. Even though it was hard for Bethany to surf on a regular board Bethany’s problem was that she couldn’t hold on to the board when it was going underwater. Bethany’s solution was to have her father build a surfboard that she could hold on to with one arm. Bethany was back and surfing amazingly on his new board after 3 weeks. Even though Bethany went through all these adversity's she still stayed determined to get back in the water.
Conner and Cayden compared to Michael Johnson
Imagine if your brother was disabled and couldn’t walk or talk? Conner has a little brother named Caden who has special needs and can’t walk or talk, but these two boys did a triathlon. Michael Johnson is nothing compared to them in my eyes because even though he won the Olympics he still didn’t show the same determination as Conner and Cayden. Even though Conner and Cayden only ran in the kids triathlon and lost they still had to go through having to run and swim and bike with somebody that couldn’t walk or talk. Also from Michael's perspective he may have shown more determination because he won and because he ran his whole life and through hardships to get to the point of being in the olympics. The determination shown in both of these stories is magnificent.
