Why would we need &rsquo to create an apostrophe inside of p tags?
I'm not sure why this is necessary.

That's no ordinary apostrophe! That's a "curly" or "word processing" style fancy apostrophe. Using the character entity allows the browser to render it without the server having to store or transmit anything other than common ASCII characters. This eliminates any risk of it getting altered by some process along the way.
