Arthur “Boo” Radley is a seemingly minor but subtly impactful character in Lee’s book. According to rumor, he joined a gang, was convicted of some relatively minor crime, and was supposed to be sent to a state boarding school, but his father refused. Boo once, while cutting up newspapers, stabbed his mother in the leg with scissors and continued calmly scanning the papers. His father convinced a judge not to send Boo to an asylum, so he was kept in his house, never seen again by the community, and became the source of horror stories for children. The flames of gossip are, as usual, fueled thoroughly by Miss Stephanie Crawford and tend to be ridiculously twisted: “Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that’s why his hands were bloodstained” (16).

I started to recall all the evenings we would as a family drive downtown and pass out containers of meals to the homeless, the hour long weekend drives to a heavily populated hispanic city of Eustis to assist the less fortunate for five consecutive years and the nights my mom stayed up until my father arrived from work. My parents were the best role models and persistently encouraged me to reach beyond what they’ve accomplished and engrained in me the most valuable lesson that’ll never be taught in a classroom which is to care for those around you even when you need it most. I was given that which is has no price, never fades and is constant which is love. My upbringing has made me the independent person I am today and has guided my desire to help others through my interests in the medical field and
