|only a Finch waiting on |
|tables, but one in a courthouse lawing for niggers.

|Finch. Ms. Dubose was trying to make a point at how stupid Atticus|
|was for defending a|
|black person. Jem and Scout were hurt by Ms.

|When Ms.

Maudies house burnt down, Boo Radley covered Scout with a|
|blanket. Scout told Atticus that someone had put a blanket over|
|her and she didn't even |
|notice. Jem and Scout thought that Boo was not only a kind man,|
|but he was not a bad|
|man like everyone had been making him out to be. Boo was looking |
|out for them.

Mr. |
|Dolphus Raymond was mistaken as an evil man when he offered Dill |
|alcohol, Scout was|
|absolutely shocked when she saw what Mr. Dolphus Raymond had|
|offered Dill. Dill told |
|Scout it was only Coca-cola.

|Scout had a lot going through their heads when they heard about|
|Tom being shot. While|
|being stressed out from this situation, they surely knew that,|
|that brave man was now in a|
|free, peaceful place. After Jem realizes reality he says to |
|himself that he thinks he is |
|beginning to understand why Boo Radley stays in his house all the |
|time. It was because|
|he wanted to stay inside.

Jem is beginning to deal with the after |
|effect of the trial. He is|
|shocked and very upset at the fact that the jury convicted an|
|innocent man. Now that |

|from Atticus and so many learning experiences with the people|
|around them, they will |
|definitely make a difference just like their father did.|
|The events that occurred in their lives had such a great impact|
