To Kill A Mockingbird
When would you decide to speak up?
Would you speak up even if you were one voice?
A lesson on the deep divides that exist within our world.
You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
Why should you care?
One of the most infuriating phrases we hear when we are younger, usually from obnoxiously smug adults, is “Life isn't fair." Typically, this statement is not followed by, "But it should be, so let’s get working on that." Usually the message is, "That’s just the way grown-ups roll – suck it up and deal with it, kid." And as we get older, we start believing that that’s just the way it is and nothing we can do will change it. in TKAM, one person decides to do what he can to take action on the side of justice and equality, even though he knows it’s hopeless. To Kill a Mockingbird doesn’t sugarcoat the results. It does, however, suggest that doing something to make life a little more fair, even if it seems like it’s not having any effect, is still worthwhile, and what’s more, admirable.
