Why is it a Sin to Kill a Mockingbird The mockingbird sings to entertain the listener, it is also a symbol of peace. It is a sin to kill a mockingbird because it doesn't hurt anyone and is innocent. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Miss Maudie said, “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.

Next, Atticus does things independently, he does not not need everyone helping him. Atticus does things alone and that also doesn’t bother him.

There is a great understanding in my community and therefore we always allow the law to run its course. Working together with the law enforcers members of my community have helped to convict robbers, find disposed bodies and eradicate drugs from the community. By doing all of this we are able to live in a very peaceful society where no youth faces drug problems, there are no hijackings, no sexual abuse cases, no child abuse cases and etcetera.

Mark, the father of this child, put together the words, “Fine. Sure.” That proved one thing only, this child didn’t change anything.

The passages share the common theme of doing the work that must be done so we can live in perfect harmony and to let nothing stand in your way. The author of “Clearing Paths to the Past” tells about how he used to help his grandfather clear the sidewalk when it snowed, but now since his grandfather is dead he does it himself. He does it for the kids walking to school, so that they won’t have to worry about walking through the snow. Although he says it is tiring and very time consuming, he seems to enjoy doing it.
