Good Stuff in To Kill A Mockingbird

I choose the quote when Atticus says, “We’re making a step.” “It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step.” I like this quote because just the littlest of changes can make a big difference in our lives over time. It’s just like the 1% gain article we read earlier this year. In the article it talks about how the little changes we make will make a huge difference over time. It’s just the little steps we take to become better. To me all that matters is if you are trying to get better even if it is just the smallest of changes we make. 

An Authority on Courage and Integrity

I choose my dad. Always do what is right and stand up for what is true. Even if you are the lone wolf and aren’t with the pack. Trust your instincts and what you know is true no matter if you are under pure pressure. If you are in a tough situation go with your gut feeling and what you feel like is the right decision. Everything you do now is gonna affect and impact your life rather if it is now or later. Don’t let anyone lead you away stay on your path no matter what. Always tell the truth no matter what the circumstances are.

Blind Spots

I agree with Atticus and what he said to scout about what was about to happen. Just because someone does something they shouldn’t doesn’t mean they are a terrible person. Everyone has there times when they say something that is offensive or does something that they shouldn’t have done. Everyone makes mistakes and has their own opinion about things. With Walter Cunningham his opinion was that Tom Robinson was a bad man just because of the color of his skin, and that he should be killed. That doesn’t make him a bad person when really he just has a blind spot. 

Real Courage

Real courage to me is doing something you are scared of but do it anyways even though you might not want to. Standing strong the whole time and not giving up. Mrs. Dubose showed real courage by quietening her morphine addiction by having Jem come and read to her so she won’t think about it. To me that takes real courage to stop something that you have done for a long time even though you might not want to or think it is the best thing. She stayed strong and didn’t give up even the times where tuff. She found the best way to make good of the situation and helped others by having Jem read to her. To me that is real courage.
