Dubose's caustic tongue, Miss Stephanie Crawford's catty gossip, and even Walter Cunningham's thinly veiled threat on his life. My father, Atticus, already uncovered the truth.

Thus, a innocent, black American, is found guilty for something he has not done, and this really disgust and upsets me. Is the severity of this case so great, it has to be brought to court? Then someone tried to attack me, the rush swept through me like I had never been so energized in my life. I really hope the next coming months will be better for our family than they have been lately.
