After news of Atticus defending a colored man named Tom Robinson spreads around town, people think less of Atticus. Scout’s schoolmates start teasing and insulting Atticus which leads to a fight, but Atticus tells Scout that “ no matter how bitter things get, they’re still our friends and this is still our home” (Lee 79). Atticus fully understands the situation and empathizes with Scout that he understands and why she would act in such way. Atticus also knows that in the long run, it is better to prevent Scout from fighting, so he sacrifices a part of his own dignity and reputation for her assurance that all is good, even though other people may judge. The sense of caring heart and understanding for Scout that Atticus influences upon his children are in some ways a form of empathy because it is a way for Atticus to understand their situation and their hardships.

Despite the woman, Mayella Ewell, having had made the advances on Tom he had such a little chance of not being convicted because of his race. After he was convicted he was later shot later in the novel whilst trying to escape. Even within the novel, Lee calls Tom similar to a Mockingbird through Mr. Underwood’s editorial “He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children” (Lee 244). Boo Radley is also considered a mockingbird in the novel because he as well was subject to cruelty and injustice despite having done nothing wrong.
In the novel, The Book of Three, written by Lloyd Alexander, Taran is a hero, even though he did not defeat The Horned King by himself. Taran is a hero because he is able to keep the companions together throughout their journey, and for his ability to take the blame for his wrong doings.

No one deserves to die, and no one deserves death. Some executions are justified, but David Herold’s was not. Herold was a skilled and talented man who was deprived into a corner to help a killer. James L. Swanson’s novel, Chasing Lincoln 's Killer, a diary entry, “Last Diary Entry of John Wilkes Booth,” and an article, “Lincoln Writ of Liberty” contain evidence that proves Herold’s innocence. Herold did help a murderer; however, he is like everyone, in that he is susceptible to violent threats.

In the children’s book, the story displays two themes that are well represented in the book. The first theme is good warriors and good king. The story depicts how Beowulf possess the qualities of loyalty, honesty, and integrity that motivate him into a wise and respectable leader. For example, when Beowulf was fighting Grendel, his men “swords raised and ready, determined to protect their prince if they could.” The book also depicts another example through Wiglaf’s action. Even though Beowulf comrades abandoned him, Wiglaf was the only warrior “stood there, miserable, remembering, as a good man must, what kinship should mean.” This portrays the loyalty that Beowulf’s men committed to him because of Beowulf character integrity.
The criminal behaviour of Robin Hood doesn’t just deal with the corruption of the law and justice system but also religious corruption. The anti-monastic tone of the rhymes is largely a result of the feelings of resentment towards the corruption of clergy. This is illustrated through the juxtaposition of Robin Hood’s personal piety and the ignorance and wealth of members of the clergy. In Robin Hood and the Monk, Robin risks his life to hear Mass in Nottingham, but is betrayed by the monk. The monk alerts the sheriff of his whereabouts and thus appears as the villain in the story.
