But despite her yearning, it all started slowly tearing the family apart. Jeanne states “Mama tried to hold us together for a while, but it was hopeless (Houston and Houston 36).” Mama was also a very strong, hard worker and worked multiple jobs in the camps for a while. We can see this strength and perseverance in Jeanne as she grows up. When she starts to feel the pressure and pain of prejudice that exists against her race, she doesn’t let people walk all over her, yet she doesn’t let it bring her down either. If she was discriminated against in one of the activities she took part in, she moved right on to the next one and tried equally as hard to be recognized for the talent she has.
For instance, Charles kept on pounding his feet in class one day, and as a result he was ordered to stand in the corner of the room. He “had to stand in a corner during story-time because he kept pounding his feet on the floor” (346). Through further analysis, one can conclude that all the simpleminded kindergartener yearned for is attention from the students. Furthermore, in the passage, it states that Charles threw chalk, depriving him from his chalkboard privileges. Similarly, he threw the chalk in an attempt to gain attention from the class and the teacher, however, instead he was punished.

She kicks it away from the defenders and dribbles it down the field.

Perseverance taught me to carry a smile like my nurses and my mom. Nurses were my best friends in the hospital.

Drained of energy, I drag my legs across the gym floor trying to run faster and faster. I keep circling around the gym like a track star in a race, trying to get as many points as possible for my team in this game of kickball. I almost make it to home base when someone on my team kicks the ball like a wild ape and it gets caught by a giant sixth grader. As we are switching sides to play the outfield, the principal came in to yell at some boys who were acting just rowdy and pathetic. Once the principal took them to his office we continued our game of kickball.

“Oh my goodness,” Bryce stuttered out, as his jaw fell almost the ground. “This has got to be a freshman game attendance record,” my teammates said. Our coach was even astonished, “I have never seen this building so packed.” I immediately stopped the drill I was doing and just watched. My eyes lit up wider than a kid in a candy shop who just received his allowance. Then the noise began to rattle the PIT into an environment of bedlam.
They try to fought with me and, I run. I warn security and, the team not to come out. They are chasing after me throughout the beneath of the stadium and, I can barley catch my breath. I finally decide to grab a metal pole sitting on the side of the control panels for the
