This week's top of the heap: Inspirational personality traits from characters that we love : )
Tolerance: A fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.
Lizzy: Lots of characters are unique and have some kind of obstacle to tackle. One of my favorites is Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Percy has a lot to overcome; even before he finds out he is a demigod. Having ADHD and constantly getting kicked out of schools isn’t easy. It is almost impossible to make friends, teachers seem to have it out for him, and it is hard to concentrate. Does he give up? Does Percy spend his time complaining? No, he tries to make it work at each new school he is enrolled in. He thinks about what has gone wrong in the past and tries to learn from it and not make the same mistakes again. The reason that I like Percy so much is because he keeps on trying. Perseverance is a necessary trait in anyone who has to rise above the things that are holding them back. It is this trait that helps him to be such a great demigod once he learns who he really is, because he does not give up. He keeps trying and working towards his goal no matter what. Go Percy! ~L
