People tend to create a first opinion of something depending on how it looks like. In “The Dog of Caucomgomoc” by Boardman Hawes, people start to create fake myths about this dog after the death of his master, all of this because of his scary appearance. Only Gordon Low, the man who saw how this dog took care of his owner, knows his real personality, and finally will show the world they were wrong. Through the reactions of the afraid dog to the inhabitants, "The Wild Dog of Caucomgomoc" explores how fear can show a wrong facet of a person making others judge by first appearances. After the death of the dog’s master, Boardman Hawes shows how the people start saying that now this dog has something “sombre” only because his owner had it (Paragraph 5).

I think that the author was trying to say that the dog, like candy, is old and people think worthless. I also think that the author was trying to foreshadow something bad happening to George and Lennie. This is because I have noticed that Candy’s relationship with his dog is alike the relationship of George and Lennie. Since someone else shot Candy’s dog, I think that maybe George or Lennie might ask someone to hurt the other person. Or maybe since Candy said that he should have killed his dog, George may hurt Lennie and vice versa.
He’ll say, ‘You’ve done it. Don’t try to put nothing over me,’” (85). Lennie realizes that George may be angry at him for killing the innocent puppy. In spite of George asking Lennie to stay out of trouble, Lennie got in trouble without knowing. Eventually, George wouldn’t be able to cover for Lennie’s mistakes.
The way he handles his kids is his own business because it works for him. He teaches his kids the right things to do, how to treat people, and to look at everyone the same, and he expects them to do so. Jem and Scout are not perfect; however, they respect their father.

These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for

The Character of Atticus To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a timeless story about the meaning of friendship and the difference of good and bad. The story has lots of great characters that show their moral values but has no greater, morally upstanding character as Atticus Finch, the father of the narrator Scout. He has many great moments showing his true colors, and in the process showing his kids the way to act when everyone and everything is against you. Through-out the book Atticus again and again shows he is a wise and wants to show his kid how to act, and is a smart man that only wants to do good. Atticus shows how wise he is by telling Scout, “You never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.”
Prathana karki Block 4th Ms.bose How TKAMB teaches about courage? Courage is an attribute of good character that makes us worthy of respect. From the Bible to made-up stories; very old stories to Hollywood movies,our culture is rich with excellent stories of courage for the greater good. From David fighting Goliath in the Bible, the cowardly lion in The Wizard of Oz who gathers the courage to face the witch, to Harry Potter and stars war, kids are raised on a diet of heroic and motivational stories. History books tell colorful stories of social advocators, such as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King , who chose to stand out against terribly unfair treatment at great personal risk.
