Determination

Defeat

No one is beat till he quits,

No one is through till he stops,

No matter how hard failure hits,

No matter how often he drops,

A fellows not down till he lies

In the dust and refuses to rise.

Fate can slam him and bang him around,

And batter his frame till he's sore,

But she can never say he's drowned

While he bobs up serenely for more.

A fellows not dead till he dies,

Nor beat till he no longer tries.

-Edgar Guest

He is shown as a young, spirited warrior who overcame the giant with a sling shot. This is an example because without his determination to defeat this giant his goal would not of been accomplished. Showing how these factors are important if you ever want something important accomplished in life.

U.S Marine Corps Memorial

This U.S Marine Corps Memorial in Washington D.C is an example of determination. This statue is of soldiers razing a flag after they have successfully claimed soil to be owned by the U.S. This supports the idea of determination because while the war was going on these men could of just not joined the army and waited for other people to do the job for them. But this statue represents the exact opposite, its for those who had the strength and determination to go and help change the situation. Because without people like them things wouldn't of gotten better.
