In Maya angelou book “I know why the caged bird sings” adversity was a big deal in her story. By her growing up in stamps Arkansas, Maya was able to adversity to understand how her life when she was growing up with a grandmother with no parents to raise her. In her autobiography it was saying that “our parents had decided to put an end to their calamitous marriage, and Father shipped us home to his mother. A porter had been charged with our welfare—he got off the train the next day in Arizona—and our tickets were pinned to my brother’s inside coat pocket”. When her grandmother had come to get her and her brother they had been introduced to adversity.
Each adversity holds with it the seed of a greater benefit it’s simply up to us how to utilize them. When difficulties arise, it’s completely up to us how we deal with them. We can either let them break us down, or we can build ourselves back up to our ideal form. When difficulties arise, they’re obstacles put in our way not to stop us but to pull out our real colors, to make us endure the harsher paths in order to leave with newfound strengths. Through the book Maya had managed to fight through many obstacles that were in her way while she was growing up in a segregated time period, in which she was hated for because of her skin color. Maya grandmother had taught her how to conduct herself around white people and the religions that she believes in. In the text it said “during the picking season my grandmother would get out of bed at four o’clock (she never used an alarm clock) and creak down to her knees and chant in a Sleep-filled voice, “Our Father, thank you for letting me see this New Day. Thank you that you didn’t allow the bed I lay on last night to be neither my cooling board, nor my blanket my winding sheet. Guide my feet this day along the straight and narrow, and help me to put a bridle on my tongue. Bless this house, and everybody in it. Thank you, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.”…
