The theme I have chosen for the story "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", is to never jump to conclusions. I have three scenes from the story to reference to support the Theme. The first scene i have to reference is when everyone turned there backs and accused Mr. Goodman of being suspicious or dangerous because his car was the only that started in there block. If people didn't jump to conclusions the whole fight about the car starting could've been avoided. The second scene is the scene where charlie shot a mysterious figure that happen to be Pete Van Horn. If he could've waited a couple pf more seconds to try and recognize the figure he would've saved Pete's life. The last scene i have to reference is the scene where they accused the little bot ( Tommy ) of being something dangerous because he was the only one who could describe why and what was happening. When people are scared they tend to jump to the conclusion that explains something in simplest way. They want someone to blame or they want answers. So they blamed Tommy because he was the only one who knew about what was happening and why. The only reason he knew is because of the comic books he read. Jumping to Conclusions is never a good thing because it can lead to you starting a bad fight.
