So far in To Kill a Mockingbird, I have really liked it. This is one of the many passages that I think is really powerful and meaningful. “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 that what this passage is saying is that some people are just cold and evil and will do what they need to do to win. Many older people/adults don’t really care what horrible things are going on in the world, but when children know what is happening and what evil is going down in the world they get scared and sad-when adults don’t really care, they think it is just the “usual” that is happening. This quote sounds to me like that children are the only pure and good people in the world. But I guess that everyone was a child once.
