Good Stuff

After the trial Atticus says “They’ve done it before and they did it tonight and they’ll do it again and when they do it–seems that only children weep” I think this is so cool that Atticus says that because to me it shows that the children have wide eyes and open hearts. They don’t understand why the color of someone’s skin is so important to adults, they just think that if it wrong the correct person should be punished because that is how many people raise their kids. To me it shows how majority is not always right but sometimes you have to fight for the right to even have justice where it is needed. Showing us that adults can be wrong and foolish kids can be right. I feel that many times educated adults can have a very skewed view on things, they become desensitized to something that they knew was wrong when they were kids and just continue, sigh, and say “oh, well, that’s the way life is” and don’t do anything to change it even though they have the most potential to change the problem.

    I love how you said kids have “wide eyes and open hearts.” I agree that kids tend to have an innocent and non bias perspective on things- they can see things how they really are. I think kids have important opinions and if people would listen to them more often they could learn a few things for themselves.
