Persevering through Adversities

The Road to Perseverance By: Caroline Cottrill

My Definition of Perserverance

" Age wrinkles the body.

Quitting wrinkles the soul". Said Douglas MacArthur that was his response to persevering to never give up here is my definition of perseverance.

It's when someone who has ambition is working to achieve a specific goal but there are some bumps along the way but you have to press-on around those bumps so you can get to that goal that you had set for yourself.

Jackie Robinson ( Sequence )

Jackie Robinson was born on January 31,1919. His life was not as easy as others because of the racial barriers that were going on at that point in time. Even though Jackie Robinson broke color barrier in 1947, the percentage of African American baseball players today is still low at around 8%. This shows that his life as an African American never got easier even though the color barrier was broken there were still hateful comments said about him from others. Even as he was part of the team, he was still banned from some restaurants, and hotels. Even though he was faced with many advertises he still stayed with the team and turned the other cheek to the hateful comments that were said about him. This shows that over all the mean comments that were said about Jackie he just let them roll off his back and that may just have made him the greatest baseball legend of them all.

Winston Churchill ( Compare & Contrast )

Winston Churchill Compared and Contrasted to the story A Carp Gives A Lesson

Winston Churchill persevered by leading a whole country to victory in World War II. And in the story A Carp gives a Lesson the Carp also persevered through his combativeness to get the rice cake. In the Winston Churchill biography that we read in class was about how Winston Churchill came fourth and saved Britain from total destruction. And the Carp gives a Lesson that we also read in class was about how this guy was trying to get into a painting class and failed so he was walking home and. He saw this carp trying to get a rice cake that was stuck in the ice. So overall Winston Churchill and the Carp both persevered differently but they both made differences in peoples life's.
