Jackie Robinson Essay



    Jackie Robinson was a very virtuous person. He broke the color barrier by using his nine values to get into The Brooklyn Dodgers. The nine values that he used were very good ones, and they all are helpful in everyday life. If you feel discouraged, just look at Jackie and think,"Well, if he can do this with barriers, then I can, too."  I sometimes think that, and I need it more than ever now, because I am writing a story that I may get published. The main things that I am using and needing to use with my story are excellence, courage, and determination . 

    Excellence (to me) means to try your best, even if you fail once or twice, even if it is hard to do. I am having trouble working my school work and homework AND working on my story because of the lack of time, but I still try my best in both. I hope soon to start setting aside thirty minutes a day for my story and thirty minutes for homework and school work. I wish to finish my story by the end of the year.

    Courage means not to listen to what people say or think and just for you to do what you know is right, or at least that’s what I think. People think that I am “too young” to write stories, but I know that they are wrong and I can do whatever I put my mind to. Some also think that my story is “too weird”. I’d like to say that it doesn’t bother me, but I can’t. I am hoping to improve upon my courage so that I will be able to not be affected by the words that they say.

    To me, determination means to do your best and keep going, even when it feels like you can’t. I am worried about whenever I finish, because then I will have ti change all of the names and edit it, but I am determined to do it. I wish I could get it read by everyone and everyone would like it. I am determined to get my story published once it is finished, even if some publishers refuse.

    In conclusion, the values of Jackie Robinson are used a lot by me. I know that I didn’t mention this in my paragraphs, but another thing that Jackie and I share is that we are both winners. I think that you should try to use all of his values every day. Some values that I am using with my story are excellence, courage, and determination. Do you have any barriers that can be broke using his values?
