Bob Ewell tried to kill Jem and Scout first of all. Bob hurt Jem bad enough for Atticus to ask “do you think he is dead?” Even though Boo Radley came to the rescue of the kids he was still wrong for going after them. He should not have even tried to go after the kids, they are little and they had nothing to do with what happened to him or what he did to Mayella. He thought it was going to turn out the other way with Scout and Jem lying dead under the tree but it turned to be him lying dead under the tree. Any man who would give a kid a broken arm and give him a concussion shows many signs of hatred.
In the stories Lamar Loper’s First Case, How I Lost the Junior Miss Pageant, and the story Thank You, M’am, poverty is the cause of the characters problem and if poverty was nonexistent things would have been different for them. In the story Lamar Loper’s First Case the moral of the story was that money can make all the difference in someone’s life.

Lamar could not believe people like this existed in the world and the only reason Simmie continued to do what he did was because his wife and son did not have the money to just up and leave. Lamar came from money and knew that he should not be dealing with stuff like his first case but in the end he did the right thing in protecting the mom and son from Simmie.

It is in human nature to find the best way to get revenge. When people finally achieve there revenge it most likely won’t deliver any satisfaction. Revenge have always affected people actions, people suffering, and decisions afterwards. Revenge is the action of imposing harm on someone. Most people will evaluate their options and make there rational decisions.
Revenge is out of hate and anger, when you want revenge you’ll do anything to get it. Revenge doesn’t solve anyone’s problems because when an individual gets revenge on another individual, that person is going to retaliate and want revenge too; it’s just an ongoing cycle of hatred and anger. An example of this is in the movie John Q, in this movie John Q the father of Michael, comes to find out that his son has a serious heart condition and the family isn’t wealthy enough to pay for the procedure. As his son gets sicker and sicker John Q made as much money as he could, he soon became desperate.

With most gladiators owned by trainers they had to sign a contract that if they broke a trainers rule they would be killed without flinching. Some trainers had skilled fighters that won them much money, but for their to be a victor there had to be many defeated.

To eliminate someone else 's existence, knowing that has family and is loved and has wants and goals is horrible. Yet gladiators did not have any other choice as the value of their own life takes precedence over that of someone else 's. The mental drain of being a gladiator must have been immense and those who could not handle it would have been quickly killed, because those who hesitate about hurting someone on the battlefield would eventually meet someone who would not hesitate and take their life in an instant.

These men did nothing to offend him, but they sought to marry a widow.
