Good Stuff from To Kill a Mockingbird

I chose, “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step” I think that this means that, they are moving forward slowly but still moving forward.  I think that even though they are moving slowly taking small steps, they’re still moving forward, still taking a step an even though it’s small, it’s better than not taking a step at all.  I think that this important because it pretty much says that even though something is small and may not do much, it is better than nothing.  I also think that it can also mean that, things may start out small, but eventually it’ll get bigger.

Authority on Courage and Integrity

I chose Abraham Lincoln because he was faced with lots of hard decisions.  I think he’d say, “Sometimes the right decision requires sacrifices, but it is still the right decision and you should go with it no matter what.”  “You might not be able to determine which one is the right decision, so choose the one that sounds the safest and most beneficial for you and others around you.

Blind Spots

I think that Mr. Cunningham is still a good man but he tried to do something wrong just because of something he believes in.  Yes Mr. Cunningham did try to do something really bad, but I think that he is still “basically a good man.”  I honestly don’t think that just because you did something wrong you’re a bad person, because there could be some way you were provoked or it could have just been an accident but your still a good person who just did something wrong.  I think that Atticus was right about blind spots and people have a belief window which has all the things they think and they could think that racism is good and black people are not.
