In To Kill a Mockingbird, on page 246 Miss Maudie said “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step”. I like how this is said because in life many people think of the big picture but we really need to focus on the little things that can get us to our final destination quicker. If you can focus on the little things it can help you grow to be a better person and make you someone that you never thought you could be. I am going to try to look at the little things so I can have a better outcome and grow as a person.
The person that comes to my mind is my dad. And sometimes in life it can be very hard to do the right thing and sometimes you just want to give up. Well I know that if we work hard at what we want then we can accomplish it. I always try to to do the right thing so it can become a habit and I am always doing my best. So when you are in a rough situation just remember that if you try your best and work hard only good can come from it. Having Authority on courage and integrity is a great trait and if you have it, it can help you.
I think that Mr. Cunningham does have some blind spots. He sounds like someone that works hard and is honest and tries to be nice to many people. I think that when he showed up to murder Tom Robinson, it was a very bad mistake. But also that is how things were back then. Black’s going really do much to the white people and get away with it. That is for sure one blind spot that he has. So at the start of the book he gave you a thought that he was a good man but now that we wants to murder someone kind of gives you a different look on him.
Real courage is doing something that might be scary or hard to do but you are doing it for your or someone else’s benefit. The feeling of doing something hard and accomplishing it feels great and when you meet someone that has courage you know that they will try to help you in every way. Sometimes doing things that hard and you don’t want to do can help build courage and build confidence. Having courage is a great trait and when you have courage you can help yourself and others.
