Problem and Solution
When you starve, you find something to eat no matter what the risk. This is an extreme case of perseverance because to eat your own kind is the last resort so to get there you must have persevered to get that far. That amount of perseverance can be showed by the Donner party. They were going to California from Illinois in search for a better life. As they were going they were faced with some extreme cases like starvation, and the only idea any one had to persevere through it was cannibalism. But the most important part is not the cannibalism but the journey they made to get there because that was when their perseverance was shown. In other words when you have a big problem you need a lot perseverance, to get a big solution.
