To Kill A Mockingbird:
Lessons in Part One
Becky Wise and Meghan Brennan Bravery After Atticus shoots Tim Johnson, Scout immediately admires him for his shooting ability, but this is not what Atticus wants the kids to think about what he did. Atticus teaches Jem and Scout that holding a gun in your hand doesn't make you brave. Courage Mrs.Dubose had sturggled with an addiction to morphine for a very long time, and she knew that she had very little time to live. Atticus tells Jem and Scout that even though they aren't fond of Mrs.Dubose, she is courageous for fighting a losing battle with her addiction to morphine. "It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what" (Lee 149). An example from life today would be anyone fighting a life threatening disease, knowing that they only have a certain amount of time left to live. These people know that they are going to die, but fight through it and hold on as long as they can. Tolerance When Walter Cunningham came over lunch, Scout was quick to judge him when he piled his food and poured molasses over everything. Scout learns from overhearing Atticus talking that she should be tolerant towards other peoples opinions and their ways of life, even if she doesn't agree with it. She also learns to consider a persons specific situation before judging them. "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view" (Lee 39). "I saw that One-Shot-Finch!" (Lee 128). Today, many people get in fights to make others think that they are brave. However, true bravery would be facing your problems head on instead of creating more problems by fighting. Today, many people judge others by the brand or style of clothes and technology that they own. They don't take into consideration that persons situation at home before making these judgements.
