Cane's Arcade (Problem And Solution)

Cane worked with his dad in the summer because he had no were to go. So when Cane was sitting around doing nothing, he thought of a good idea. He thought to build an arcade and he thought it would be great if people would come and play his arcade games made out of cardboard. And it is very hard to build an arcade with cardboard and especially what games he is making. Cane thought it was great if even one person would stop by and play his games. One day a reporter came to his arcade and played Cane's arcade games, Then the reporter put it on his social media. There was a donation spot for Cane's school. So then the next day his dad took Cane out so everybody would come and surprise him with all the people there. Cane had shirts that were his, he made them.

Lessons Learned From Perseverance

The lesson from perseverance is when things don't go as planned don't quit keep going forward. It's Important to except failure so to not make the mistake again. When bad adversities appear just don't quit. For example Jackie Robinson nobody treated nice and all the people at the games throw food or other things at Jackie or spit on him, Or the crowds would boo or do something distracting so he wouldn't hit the ball. But he never quit he kept persevering when times were tough. Jackie got his team wins and other good things. Branch Rickey was proud of him. Since Jackie kept persevering he got something good out of the whole thing.
