My mother and father looked as if they were about to cry in sadness and anger at the same time. At that moment my father ran back inside and told us to get ready for a walk around town. When my mother brother and me got ready we started to walk towards town and on the way there we saw more and more houses and buildings destroyed and vandalized. Every time I looked at my father on the way there I saw a very disappointed look on his face. When my family and I finally got to town all the Jewish-owned businesses on the street had been vandalized.

This hurt him in many ways because it prevented him from seeing the truth about himself, which would end up isolating him from his family. In the play, Willy’s own son told him that he was nothing special, and he was just an average man; Willy angrily replied, “I am not a dime a dozen! I am Willy Lowman,” (Miller 105). This moment explains the problems with Willy’s obsession of appearing perfect, because he pushed away his family who is trying to tell him the truth over a lie he told himself years ago. Since he refuse to acknowledge the truth, Willy begins to reminisce his ‘glory’ days and as a result felt he had nothing left to give towards the end of his life.

Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about

After the soldiers return to the base, the soldiers on the assignment are unable to answer to their superior, instead “they just look at him for a while, sort of funny like, sort of amazed, and the whole war is right there in that stare. It says everything you can 't ever say. It says, man, you got wax in your ears. It says, poor bastard, you 'll never know—wrong frequency—you don 't even want to hear this. Then they salute the fucker and walk away, because certain stories you don 't ever tell,” (O’Brien 56) as a result of their loss of sanity and rational state of mind.
