The 90’s were a time in America where wars were fought and legends were made. It was about people believing in themselves and knowing what it takes to accomplish a dream of theirs. Although this was a hard time for America like the world trade bombing and the gulf war some people achieved something that they weren’t supposed to and went through so much to get to where they are today. Some examples of these outgoing people are Michael Jordan, Herschel Walker, and Barry Sanders. This is an essay about all of that the 90’s. One of the most influential people during the 90’s without question is Michael Jordan. He was known as the best basketball player of all time but his first love as a kid was baseball. As a sophomore in high school he was cut from the team so he practiced every day and during his junior and senior years he averaged 25 points a game and made the McDonalds all American game. He then got a scholarship to play basketball at North Carolina and that’s were his career hit off as he hit the game winning shot for North Carolina to win the national championship as a freshman. He then went into the NBA draft to be drafted 3rd overall and averaged almost 30 points a game. For the rest of his career he would win five regular season MVP awards, six NBA championships, six NBA final MVP’S, three All Star MVP’S and defensive player of the year. When his career was all said and done he went on to be the greatest basketball player that has ever lived(“Biography”). But maybe a bigger story than Michael Jordan might be a guy by the name of Herschel Walker. He was born in Georgia and grew up just outside in the town of Wrightsville. Although he was a college and pro football star he had no interest in sports until he was 12. Instead... ... middle of paper ... ...ter found the guys one week later as they tried to take the deposit on the retail van that was responsible for the bomb. When one of the men was arrested he said that the next time they attack they would bring both of them down which came on 9/11 which shook the whole world in an event nobody will ever forget (“Woog”). So in conclusion that is my report over the events that happened in the 90’s. The whole idea of the 90’s was economic stress and wars and making sure that they did something to stop people that were in charge of the threats. But it was also about people living there dream and when somebody said that they couldn’t do something they just worked even harder to prove them wrong and prove themselves that they could do it. After all one of Michael Jordan’s most famous quotes “I can accept failure everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying”.
