On page 246, Miss Maudie said, “We’re making a step. It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step.” And by that she means, they are making progress. They are going places with what they have been trying to do (free Tom). Every little thing is a step along the way, and everything may be little things, but they will all work out and add up. Miss Maudie is not giving up hope. I think that because she said this, it will help regain the hope of the people who have maybe lost hope. I picked this because it’s sometimes how I would think, or how I am told to think and I thinks that’s a good thing.
