Lessons from the Tuskegee Airmen

by Shanice

The lesson that we can learn from Lt. William Broadwater and his fellow Tuskegee Airmen is how to become an inspirational citizen. To have self-discipline. To be kind and thoughtful towards others. Have self-respect and respect to everyone else. Another lesson we can learn is how to never accept "no" as an answer. Whatever you put your mind to stick to it, we can learn how to make it in life becoming successful from what you are passionate about. No matter where you have been or where you've come from you can make others proud of you. You can make a change, break any barrier you feel is unfair and have others look up to you.

The lessons I learned from the tuskegee Airmen is that they had a hard time in being the pioneers that they are. That taught me to try harder in the things that I desire to be. Another lesson I learned from Lt. Broadwater is that if you desire to be something no matter what obstacles you may run into you have to overcome it just as they did. I learned that the Tuskegee Airmen work as a team and helped each other along the way.

I believe that you can learn a lot of lesson from the Tuskegee Airmen--for instance, lessons in courage. The Tuskegee Airmen were very brave--they had dreams to become pilots and to achieve these dreams they had to overcome a lot adversities. The Tuskegee Airmen have done so many things they could teach us how it feels to go through so much for trying to save their country. I can learn how to be a better person. We, as the next generation, can learn how it feels to be outcast because of the color of your skin. They can teach us to be strong, to fight through adversity to acheive what you believe in.

A lesson I've learned is that no matter what time period, nor racial background you come from, anything is possible if you stick to it and give it your all. I think the Tuskegee Airmen were very heroic. They've lost a lot of friends in the making, but they held their heads higha nd stuck it out to the end. These men showed great precedence towards becoming America's first African-American military-based airmen. Now, many men/women aircraft fliers ahve idols to look up to.

I've also learned that your needs come before your wants. Mr. Jones did not want to attend McKinley Technology High School but his guardian felt it was the best idea.
