This is my family, Atticus, Scout, and me Jem. We live in Maycomb, Alabama where prejudice, and hate still exists. My father, Atticus, is a lawyer and believes that all people were created equal.
This is Tom Robinson. He was convicted of raping a white woman Mayella Ewell. Atticus was asked to defend him to try and clear his name. Which Atticus explained to me as difficult because of all the prejudice people in this town.
Atticus, Scout, and I are very much hated when we go into the court. Especially Atticus because he was defending a black man. As I was listening to Mr. Ewell I got real mad, just thinking about how wrong he was. But, I thought Atticus had the case in the palm of his hand.
But then they said it. Guilty. Guilty! I was mad. Angry. But there wasnt anything we couldve done. So they sent him to the can. But it wasnt until Tom was in there he was shot and killed. All it shows is how people arent equal.
Bob Ewell does not like Atticus, so he threatened him. Atticus thought he was bluffing. But that wasnt the case with Mr. Ewell. But he didnt go after Atticus. He went after Scout and I on Halloween. He broke my arm.
Luckily Boo Radley, the Boo Radley, saved our lives by jabbing a knife into Mr. Ewell killing him. If it werent for our neighbor, who never came out, never spoke, never did anything to anyone, I probably would be dead right now. Pretty cool huh.
