Making a personal Response
The thing that struck me the most is when the whole jury in to kill a mockingbird did not believe Tom Robinson was telling the truth. But they believed mayella even though she did not tell the truth and her story didn't even make any since because she kept changing the subject. But atticus really defended Tom Robinson and I would have gave atticus a lot of respect to.This book shows a lot about how prejudice people were back then and I think that it was wrong because everybody is created equal and every man should have the rights to do whatever white men did. It also taught me a lot about how people get a lot of respect when they help.
What I basically learned in this novel is that sometimes it can be harsh to be convicted of a crime that you never did. All Tom Robinson wanted to do before Mayella tried to kiss Tom Robinson was be a nice and helpful man. Why couldn't the ewells just tell the truth about Mayella started this whole thing. And Mr.Link Deas was nice enough to try and help Tom Robinson.
