My definition of perseverance is, never giving up no matter how big the adversity is.
Perseverance in Nepal
When an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 hit Nepal on April 29th, 2015, thousands of people were left homeless. The earthquake separated many people from their families and many important resources that they needed to survive. Survivors of this disaster were noble and helped other survivors live safely. They gave their already small amounts of food to people in need. The people all lived in tents in a big field to avoid getting injured. Every day their resources become lower and lower until they have to find a way to get knew ones and to find a new home

Jackie Robinson's Perseverance
When Jackie Robinson became a professional baseball player in 1947, he had to learn how to fight many adversities. Shortly after he was revealed to be playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Robinson and his team got many complains because people thought that no colored people should be able to play baseball professionally. After Robinson heard these remarks he tried not to be combative and ignored what people said about him. After he retired Robinson went to many people and places to speak out about racial injustice and used his own story as proof. Now Jackie Robinson is one of the most well-known baseball players and everyone knows his name, and his story.
