Matt S.: CHARACTER
My value is Character. To me, character means to have a good attitude and to think positive. It also means to be happy and your character describes who you are. People should have a good character.
Jackie Robinson was born in 1919 in Cairo, Georgia. Jackie went to college at UCLA. He served in the U.S. Army before his career of baseball. Jackie was signed by the Dodgers in 1947. He was the first African American to play in Major League Baseball. Jackie won Rookie of the year in 1947. After that, he won MVP for the National League. Later, he lead the Dodgers to a World Series victory vs. the New York Yankees. Jackie did a lot of things to build character off the field like a fundraiser for the NAACP. He died in 1972. He showed many values that inspire us today.
This value relates to me because I attempt to have good character. I show this in my life is by having a good attitude. Another way I show this in my life is by being positive although sometimes I get off track. This value brings me closer to God because when I have a good character that helps me come closer to heaven. It also means that I am living a virttuous life because I am nice to people
Character. Pass it On!
Henry K.: BELIEVE
The value that I did is believe. Believe means to never give up and don’t stop trying. You need to believe in many thing. Some things that you need to believe are to do good on a test, and in sports that you’re going to win even if it’s the best team in the league.
In 1980 in the Olympics. No one believe that team US would win the game. They were versed the Hardened Soviets they came in with a long wining streak. When team US was a bunch of amateurs and collage stars on there team They believe that they can win this match and the did. 20 men on team US all got gold metals. That game was kwon as the Miracle On Ice.
This value helps me on a lot of things that I do. One day I was art a swim meet it was the crocs vs Kansas City Country Club. My team had to believe that we were going to win. We were losing by a few points it was the last race we believed that we going to win and we did. This value brings me closer to God because I believe that God is with me at all times it bring me closer to God.
