How can one person change the world?
Have you ever thought about how one person can change the world? Jackie Robinson is the one you will be reading about. You will read about how he was thoughtful, courageous, and how he was a leader. Jackie played for the Kansas City Monarchs. He was a well known baseball player. He inspired a lot of blacks to follow in his footsteps and be a leader. Now you will learn how Jackie Robinson was a leader, thoughtful, and courageous.
The one that you'll learn about first is how he was thoughtful. The way he was thoughtful was "in 1952 Jackie Robinson played baseball and knew he would be yelled at and cussed at but he still signed autographs." The way that Jackie was being thoughtful was, even though he was being yelled at and cussed at, he still signed autographs. I don't know about you but that would be hard to do for me. This is the first reason how Jackie Robinson changed the world.
The next word that you will learn about how Jackie changed the world with it is, leader. He was was a leader because ," In 1953 in Brooklyn N.Y. The Dodgers were a professional baseball team and Jackie joined and played with the Dodgers." He was being a leader by joining a very good team with only whites and what he did gave other negros to join white teams. In the second paragraph he was also being a leader because when he was being cussed and yelled at he didn't fight back. Those two things are being true leaders, not fighting back and encouraging people. That is the second way how Jackie Robinson changed the world.
The last word is courageous and that's the word that you'll learn about. He was courageous because,"Jackie was the first African American to play in the Major League Baseball in the Modern Era." The way that Jackie was courageous was he had to have courage in himself to be the first African American to go up against whites and play in the Major League. Jackie had to have a lot of courage in himself to be the best out there and to show them what he can do. This is the last reason how Jackie Robinson changed the world.
There are three ways how Jackie Robinson changed the world. Now I'll tell you another way he was being a leader in baseball. Jackie was being a leader in another way when he played baseball with the whites he " broke the color barrier in 1947." That is another way he was being a leader. Have you ever talked about somebody and those three words? If not, now you have.
