  1. 1. <ul><li>Jem and Scout, like all people, were in a constant state of mental devolpment. Since they had not yet formed beliefs and ideas of their own, the things that they were subjected to impacted their maturing in a immense way. </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>During this maturing though, Jem and Scout were still obsessed with their childish ways, naïve to the real world. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>They grew up in their father's shadow, but just as shade protects us from the sun, it was a shadow that nurtured and protected them in uncountable ways. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>They we're taught to see things objectively, but remain courageous even when prospects appeared barren. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>And to take a walk in someone's shoes before you judge them for their behavior, because majority says that prejudgment usually leads to fault. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>They saw that racism exists from both sides, as the whites shut out the blacks, the blacks shut out the whites. Creating a wall almost impossible to deconstruct. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>They saw that religion is just as powerful of a discriminatory factor as race. People, even if they believe in the same God, split themselves apart by minor differences. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>They witnessed the corruption that a superiority complex can inflict upon others, even in their own family. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>They learned that there are many more of these walls. Walls to separate religions, classes, poor and rich, young and old, genders, and every imaginable pair of opposites. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The courtroom and Robinson trial were unsettling, but necessary experiences for Jem and Scout to see the true corruption and biases of man. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>From people of color in this trial Jem and Scout learned that, in order to preserve dignity, the hard road is usually the path that must be taken. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>From witnessing this trial Jem and Scout both learned that justice is not always just, and that prejudice plays a larger factor in people's minds than logic. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>During the trial they spoke to a man with two faces. Seeing that he would perpetrate a degrading lie about himself since people couldn't comprehend the truth taught Jem and Scout the closed mindedness of men. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>From the verdict of the trail Jem and Scout became aware of what it really means to kill a mocking bird. To murder a creature that acts in nothing but benevolence to anyone it encounters, blind to prejudice </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>They were attacked one night by a man that had a grudge with their father. Desperate and lost he choose to take his angers out on children, but he was killed. This catalyzed the events that had been building up in the children's lives. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Now, even though they remained children, they had lost their naïve innocence. Exposed to the harshness of the world that matured them. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>However, in their maturing they were not corrupted. Their father's influence and direction showed them that there is a light and dark side to life, a balance. And they have the power to choose between the two. </li></ul>
