Things Have a Way of Settling Down

Right now it seems as if nothing will ever settle down. But if we look back in the 1920’s they had a huge outbreak and pandemic. So it gives me hope that life will return to normal, or the new normal. I truly miss life before corona, yet it has been kinda nice to have…

What Is My Code? “The Limits of Empathy” Article Response

I really like Atticus’s code, that he lives by. It is,  “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view”. I really like it, because I can see something, and my neighbor can see something completely different. Because we grew up differently with different beliefs and different experiences. When…

Consider Things from His (or Her) Point of View

Today I am going to write about Tom Robinson. Life for him was probably very difficult, because he was a black man. Also because he had false accusations against him! Since he was a black man people immediatly believed that he did, what he supposedly did. Yet he actually didn’t! Back in those days, those…

“Strange Fruit” Poetry Response

If I am being 100% honest, I didn’t like the poem at all. Even just reading the behind the poem story, it made me feel bad and uncomfortable. Just realizing what all those people went through just because of their skin color, is horrible! I think the poem was showing, how horrible that time period…

Real Courage

Real courage, it is different for everyone. The first that popped into my mind, was trying out for the high school golf team. I know it isn’t that big of a deal, but when I tried out for the golf team, I was to good. I had only played two real games of golf, and…

Persistance

Atticus is a honest and good man. He is also very hard-working! So even though he may not win this trial, he is still going to try. He is setting a very good example for his children. Hopefully they will look up to him and know that, trying is the best thing you can do,…

Busy Worrying About the Next World

I think this means like, Atticus drinking whiskey does less damage at his worst than a super righteous bible person.  The reason is because someone who follows religion too strictly can make themselves and everyone else miserable.  Sometimes a law or commandment is put in place to help and protect us, but if you follow…
