Thank the people that do the most for you so later in life you won’t regret not thanking them. “Those Winter Sundays” by Robert Hayden expresses the regrets a child had after mistreating the father.

Zimbardo states the following: “Evil is the exercise of power… To intentionally harm people… and to commit crimes against humanity.” In the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, some would claim that Tom is considered evil too. Although Tom seems to be “evil” towards the end of the novel since he purposefully prolonged the Jim’s liberation, he is simply a naive child whose imaginations take the best of him. Tom’s approach in everyday life is partly due to his imaginative mind. Because of all the books he reads, Tom’s creativity expands, and he searches for an adventure quite often to satisfy it.
