5:30 Sunday Class homework due 09/09

Please complete an essay on the following prompt-
“Tough challenges reveal our strengths and weaknesses.” This statement is certainly true; adversity
helps us discover who we are. Hardships can often lead us to examine who we are and to question
what is important in life. In fact, people who have experienced seriously adverse events frequently
report that they were positively changed by their negative experiences.
Assignment:
Do you think that ease does not challenge us and that we need adversity to help us discover who we are? Source: The Official SAT Study Guide, The College Board, 2009
