To start of the two hour tryout, the head coach had each player go through intense drills in order to gauge each player’s capabilities. I believe that I completed the drills correctly and to the best of my ability. In my mind, I felt that tryouts was going to become repetitive, with the coach repeating the same sequences. However, about one hour into practice, our coach decided that in order to really see how good each player was he had all of the players from different teams and play multiple scrimmages to finish out the day. In the games, I realized how many players who were better than me were out there in the state.
I see each night how hard he studies and how important his grades are to him. His hard work paid off and he will be attending the Ohio State University next fall with the goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. This has made me want to take my studies seriously and reach for my dreams. Athletically, he played soccer all four years at STVM and this season was named captain of the varsity soccer team. I attended every game and watched first-hand the time and effort he dedicated to the sport, how hard he played, how personal he took each loss, and how he even overcame injury.

Symbols have various hidden meanings that are used as a language to express emotions. They are used to make people aware of various thoughts about life and it is proved by Harper Lee’s novel to kill a mockingbird. Lee demonstrates through plot and characters that symbols express those thoughts that cannot be converted into words to express relations and emotions to a greater extent. Firstly, mockingbirds are sacrificial lambs that are surrounded by people who do not let them fight back for the injustice happening to them. For instance, Boo Radley, a young man in Maycomb society is considered to be dead due to his introvert nature.
Bob told Atticus he would get him even if it was the last thing he did. This makes Jem and Scout worried because they feel threatened as well. Jem pleads, “Nothing’s happened. We’re scared for you, and we think you oughta do something about him” (Lee,292). He is seen as an enemy to the Finch’s after the trial because of his verbal and physical actions.
After the trial, Atticus is confronted by Bob Ewell who then spits on him and Atticus tells Jem and Scout, “He had to take it out on somebody and I’d rather it be me than that houseful of children out there” (249). This shows us that Atticus wants his children to be willing to sacrifice themselves in order to save other people from harm. Furthermore, Atticus displays courage when he believes that Jem killed Bob Ewell and he states, “nobody’s hushing this up. I don’t live that way” (313). The fact that Atticus is willing to risk his son possibly going to jail demonstrates the amount of courage and integrity Atticus has as a person since he wants to do what he believes to morally right.
As a kid, I spent a lot of time in youth group with local members of the community while learning about morals and ethics. However, I never quite understood the impact of a community reaching out and helping others. I only had heard things such as “it builds character” and “a little effort goes a long way.” To be honest, at the time I was a lot more focused on getting good grades and doing well in athletics, rather than doing volunteer work. That is until high school started. we were required a copious amount of volunteer work, hence my realizations of the importance of volunteering.
