“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Actions will delineate and define you.” In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there is a strong connection from this quote by Thomas Jefferson to what is Atticus’ most important lesson that he indoctrinates upon his children. That lesson, which is the most important lesson that Atticus instills in his children, is to look at people’s actions and intentions because what is heard about people and what meets the eye is not always the truth and because the characteristics that define people are their behaviors and their actions.

Despite race discrimination around the world, there are still people who overcome and persevere through these challenges - often at great risk to themselves. During the 1930s, in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, a small town called Maycomb held a trial against an innocent African American man accused of raping a Caucasian woman. The reader experiences life in Maycomb through the eyes of ten year old girl name Jean-Louise Finch, Scout. In this case, Atticus Finch, Scout’s father, was assigned to be the lawyer for the accused, Tom Robinson. However, Atticus has integrity and tries his best for Tom even if his own life is at risk. It makes sense for Atticus to take a stand to defend Tom Robinson because that was who Atticus was,
Author Harper Lee, in her novel “To Kill A Mockingbird”, depicts a court trial in which Atticus Finch, a Maycomb County lawyer, attempts to defend an innocent black man, Tom Robinson, who was falsely accused of rape and beating by a young white woman, Mayella Ewell. Finch’s purpose is to prove Tom’s innocence to the court and avoid an inaccurate conviction. He adopts a deliberate tone in order to rule the jury’s speculation in favor of Robinsons guiltlessness.
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch taught me to never be afraid to stand up for what’s right. Sometimes, what you think is the right thing to do can get you into a lot of trouble but you’re the one that’s going to have to live with yourself. For example, Atticus is a lawyer that takes on a new client, a black man named Tom Robinson who is accused of raping a white woman. In Maycomb, Alabama, the people that live there are stuck in their ways and it’s one of the most racists places to live in the South. So, Atticus gets into a lot of trouble because the town doesn’t understand why he’s going against white people. But, Atticus doesn’t look at it like he’s defending a black man just an innocent man. He’s doing what he thinks
In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus Finch demonstrates courage through the course of his actions. In the novel, a significant point of courage is depicted when Atticus decides to defend a black man; Tom Robinson, in court. In the town, where the trial is being held, the people have the same distinct perspective as to how their society should be maintained. Atticus also displays courage when he was ready and waiting to protect Tom when he knew an angered mob would appear. In the final chapter of To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus is brave enough to suggest that his injured son had killed Bob Ewell. Atticus Finch is selflessly courageous and is tested time again and again with many difficult tasks.
“ … Confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption --- the evil assumption --- that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women, an assumption one associates with the minds of their caliber.” said Atticus in To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee in (204). In this situation the jury was going on about Tom Robinson raping Mayella Ewell and Atticus proving what people are assuming. These are the people that believe in other people’s word. Racial Inequality has not only been shown in To Kill A Mockingbird pages, but it has been seen everywhere around the world.
In this world that man lives on, sin has corrupt God’s perfect and good creation because of the act Adam first committed at the beginning, and thus because of that, sin has corrupted man as well, making him a selfish, prideful, and envious monster. However, God has extended his grace and mercy towards him through his Son Jesus and what he has done on the cross, allowing man to have a relationship with Him. Not only that, God has also given the man who has faith in him his Spirit to dwell inside of him forever, and since that Spirit is slowly making him more like his Savior Jesus, man exhibits Christ-like characteristics that honor God, given to him by the Spirit. In Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird, for example, Atticus, a lawyer and the father of Jem and Scout, displays great courage, loyalty, and
Imagine the perfect image of justice, most people will see a judge, a jury or even a police. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird the image of justice is Atticus Finch. He was the first in the Finch line to leave Finch’s Landing and pursue the study of Law. In order for him to study law, he would have to be intelligent so he could retain the information that was taught to him. Not only is he intelligent, he is also very brave. When Miss Maudie’s house was ablaze he was courageous, “I saw Atticus carrying Miss Maudie’s heavy oak rocking chair”(93). At the same time, Atticus is a very astute person. When he questioned his children about the blanket he made a comment, “Looks like all of Maycomb was out tonight”(95). He made a cunning statement
Harper Lee touches upon many social issues in To Kill a Mockingbird. Among these issues is the matter of racism in America during the 1930s. This novel focused on the issue of racism through the case of Tom Robinson which conveyed the strong hostility towards African-Americans in Maycomb, Alabama. Other various occasions in the novel exhibit racism’s potential and influence in this country including Aunt Alexandra's disapproval of Calpurnia, and Mr. Dolphus Raymond’s hidden life. Through the results of these instances, Harper Lee shed a new light on racism and how it will always persist in America.
I have finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, a book narrated by Scout Finch who is a little girl living in the town of Maycomb, Alabama. To summarize, the book is mainly about a controversial court case, in which Tom Robinson is accused of raping a white girl named Mayella Ewell. Scouts father Atticus attempts to defend the black man, but due to deep-rooted racism Tom is found guilty. The book holds many themes, including that of seeing things from another’s perspective. In this journal, I will be evaluating the lesson of walking in someone else’s shoes.
