Like "mysonsdad" said you really can't talk about the essay until you receive the results.
But I will say, it was very hard for me to come up with examples. Don't get me wrong, the topic was very good and thought-provoking; it just took me a while to come up with ideas. Many other kids I talked to felt the same way.
I realized the people who thrived in history seemed to have the least difficulty. I am not very good at history and that is the subject where (I think) most of the examples came from (along with current events). I honestly couldn't think of one literature example, even though I am sure there are several out there.
