To Kill A Mockingbird, also known as to hurt the innocent to seem superior. In some way we are all mockingbirds who sing our songs and thats what makes us unique. Though, we all have faults where we aren’t at our purest. Most of us are mockingbirds going on with our lives and just trying our best to get through life and enjoy it. To be a mockingbird is to act in ways for yourself that cause no harm to others and only betters the world. Examples of mockingbirds in the book, “To Kill a Mockingbird” would be; Bob Ewell, even though he has done wrong he could have had a bad upbringing and he wasn’t always being beastly towards the people of Maycomb, then there is Atticus Finch and Dill Harris.
