Especially when it comes down to the Tom Robinson case, Jem gets very passionate and protective towards this case. Jem and Scout were raised by Atticus, to have manners, to not have harsh judgement, to give everyone a chance, and accept people for who they are. Jem shows this a lot when it comes to Tom’s case, he strongly believes that Tom is innocent and should not be charged in anyway. When someone is to bring up the case around Jem, he tries to shut them down, he does not like hearing about it.
Showing an act of astounding courage, Melba still went to an all white school despite the traumatic experience. Lots of very realistic dialogues stood out to me but when the segregationists crowded central high on the first day and were screaming “Niggers, go home! Niggers, go back where you belong!” (Pg.35) I felt a pang in my heart as someone of my own family was hearing those cruel words. Despite hearing those kinds of words every day and still standing up what she believed in is what true courage is all about. In conclusion, Warriors Don’t Cry is a memoir that will help you get motivated and believe that if there is will there is a way.

When talking to his brother, Jack, Atticus explains that he hopes that his children will not catch Maycomb’s usual disease of racism and prejudice, he hopes his children will come to him. “I just hope that Jem and Scout come to me for their answers, instead of listening to the town.” When Scout asked Atticus if he was really a n***** lover, Atticus responded “I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes—baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name.
Mr. Luther King gave “I have a dream” speech. This day forward it changed history. The whole reason for his speech was to bring attention to get equal rights to all Americans, not just white. MLK gave him “I have a dream speech” when he did he emphasizes “ My four little children will one day live in a nation they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character I have a dream to be.” MLK gives examples about how everyone uses to judge about the color of their kind and not their character.

He states that all men were created equal as he says, “But this is a truth that applies to the human race.” King also uses ethos when he describes the prejudice and hate that he’s witnessed in everyday life. He then describes what could be everyday life, with children playing together and becoming friends regardless of race or nationality, saying, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.” The two men use ethical influence to demonstrate why they are correct and just. Finally, King and Finch use pathos. King pulls at his listeners’ emotions with his words of hope, living up to the speech’s name of I Have a Dream.

Mezirow makes the point that “(Adults) cannot fully trust what they know or believe because there are no fixed truths and circumstances change” (Mezirow 2001, pg. 2). Even though I was only 15 when the incident first occurred I was growing slowly into adulthood. Mezirow’s statement is true in my opinion because my own experience proved to me that this statement was true. There are no fixed truths in the world because everything changes around us, every moment and event creates new meanings for us.
