The Road To Perserverence

Julia Meredith

What Is Perseverance?

Perseverance to me is the continuing to keep trying in times of hardship. Perseverance includes courage, determination, fear, resilience, and a positive mindset. People with strong perseverance always succeed in life.

Jackie Robinson- Description

As number 42 of the Brooklyn Dodgers major league baseball team says “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” This means that people who make impacts on other people are more important than others. You may think this quote relates to Jackie Robinson, baseball superstar, since he broke the color barrier for the MLB. Although, many people today do not realize what Jackie Robinson had to overcome to break the color line and give the life-changing opportunity for African Americans to play baseball. People have forgotten about this seemingly unbeatable ADVERSITY Jackie had to overcome because of PREJUDICE and the rise of other Major League sports. Racism still exists in the U.S. and other sports like basketball and hockey are becoming more popular than baseball. Because of these reasons, society today have become more and more unconcerned of the fact that segregation is not a problem anymore for sports teams.
