Can YOU Survive like them?
What is Perseverance?
What is Perseverance? To me, Perseverance is when you have to push your limits to do what is right for you and others.To us in the modern world, persevering, is surviving without a phone, for a day. But in the past, where we didn’t have the advantages that we have now, people have persevered in a different way. People like Jackie Robinson, and Martin Luther King Jr., had to adapt through racism. People like Eleanor Roosevelt and other women had to fight for Women’s rights. The perseverance that we go through today are nothing like what people had to go through in the past.

Winston Churchill was the prime minister of England, and an important historical figure in America and every country fighting against Nazi Germany. He was born in November 30th 1874. His childhood was very isolated. His parents weren’t always around, and his only real family was his nanny. Throughout his life he has shown Perseverance, confidence, resilience, and was always full of energy. For example, in Sir Winston Churchill: A Biography of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I states in the first paragraph that Churchill was well liked and known as a bit of a trouble maker, which shows his energy and confidence. He also Graduated from military school almost at the top of his class during December, 1894, from Harrow school. However, he is best known for Uniting The United States and the Soviet Union, and help bring down Nazi Germany. During this time, World War II was ending. Winston Churchill once said, “Never give in. Never, never, never, never-- In nothing great or small, large or petty--Never give in, except to the convictions of honor and good sense.” From this quote, we know that Churchill wanted all of the United Kingdom, Britain, America, and the Soviet Union, and most importantly, the common folk, that are waiting for their loved ones to return from the war, to not lose hope. To not give in to the enemy, and to Persevere through the greatest adversity of the world. Winston Churchill helped them all have hope, and brought them all together, and led them through, the Road To Perseverance.
