The Book Milk and Honey was created by a woman named Rupi Kaur, a former refugee, who came to America through Canada and met, who she thought was, the love of her life. However, over time, they ended up splitting due to his mentally abusive ways and unfaithfulness. She was heartbroken for a long time but began to find her own personal values while she was alone. She then decided that women should find every value in themselves that make them unique. This is a personal evolution for all females who feel that they have purpose without a lover.
Growing up is, without a doubt, the hardest part of childhood and possibly one of the hardest parts of life too. You have to make mistakes to learn from them and plan for the future. As you get to your teenage years, you think any minor inconvenience is the end of the world. While you become moody and learn to be independent, you most likely begin to do things you know you shouldn't do. For example, you may sneak out and meet up with friends or simply don't do what you're told. Over the years, these small moments or revolution have gotten even worse as we have advanced as a society, which is why growing up over the generations can be considered and evolution. Furthermore, being a young teen rebel is also the point in your life where you have a personal revolution to find out who you truly are.
Being a parent is time-consuming, tiring, and difficult. You have to put your needs aside for your children and give up most of your active life to guide them. While this may be hard, most people develop ways to raise multiple their next kid after they've already had one. For example, if you had your first child and you decided to go out on a walk, you would most likely keep yourself packed and prepared for any situation, regardless of how unnecessary it was. By your second kid, you would have had enough experience to know what you need to have on you and what you don't need. This example of parental knowledge and logic shows how learning from your first child could, in a way, make you more suitable for another, thus evolving your parenting skills.
The Renaissance was a period in European history that focused on human qualities instead of religious standings. They encouraged the advancement of literature, arts, and science. This age created iconic pieces we know today such as Shakespearean sonnets, Mona Lisa, The Sistine Chapel, and many others. This conversion from religious institutions to secularism is why this cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and Modern History is considered a revolution in Europe.
The Holocaust was a mass genocide calling for the killing of millions of Jews. One of the most common promoters to these murders was Hitler, a German dictator, as well as the creator of the Nazi party. He ordered for them to be placed in camps and worked endlessly until it was their time to be killed. However, as World War II continued, Germany began to fall and, eventually, lost control. This gave soldiers, and other countries, the opportunity to see what was really going on in Germany and decide to help the Jewish community by getting the survivors out of the camps and allowing them to inhabit their "Holy Land". This story of the Jews and their journey to get out of the hands of the Nazis is what I define as a revolution.
Before we had our technology, fully developed languages, etc, we had ancestors who weren't much smarter than your average ape. They only had two things in mind: food and shelter. Furthermore, they didn't have an advanced form of communication or understanding until they were more experienced with their lifestyles. However, as they adapted to their environment and began to settle down in continents, they slowly developed methods and ideas to further promote their lives. Eventually, they advanced to make primitive weapons and, throughout time, made colonies. With time continuing, they have made us what we are today. This process of advancing and developing to better fit their lives is what I consider as evolution.

In the past generation, cancer, a serious disease in which cells divide rapidly and without control, destroying body tissues, has been a serious issue for our society. Since it hasn't been discovered to have a known, unproblematic cure, doctors have no choice but to administer either dangerous chemicals or radiation that kill more than cancer cells and could kill the patient. However, scientists have conducted various trials over the years and have recently developed a genetically-modified killer t cell that is reprogrammed to only target and attack cells with poisonous proteins, in this case, cancer cells and kill them. This new, amazing form of immunotherapy can over a 90% success rate and does not cause damage to the patient's other body tissues and cells. This breakthrough can be described as both an evolution in cancer treatment and a revolution for patients having to deal with cancer for the rest of their lives.
