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.

Fever 1793 ( Cause & Effect)
In the year 1793 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the epidemic of the Yellow Fever broke out among the people. When the people herd that the yellow fever was back from 30 years ago people started to panic. Some people fled the city and others shut and locked there doors in hopes that they would not catch the yellow fever. This shows how people had to persevere through losing loved one's to getting ill themselves. But people were able to persevere through the Yellow Fever but over all the death tool was 5,000 people dead these times were very remorse.
Winston Churchill ( Compare & Contrast )
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.
