Jem Letter To Atticus (To Kill A Mockingbird)
Dear Atticus, I feel awkward informing you these things deal with to deal with, so I chose to write you a letter. A few weeks ago, I was ashamed to be your child. I saw you as simply a frail, old, uninteresting guy. And now, after the trial, I see you are anything but. The way that you protected Tom Robinson was brave, and despite the fact that you lost, you were able to prove Tom was innocent and would have won had he been a white guy. I make sure that had Tom not been shot, we would have won the appeal and he would have been freed.
You revealed great composure during the trial, and never ever let your emotions get the better of you. I think it’s ideal good of you to neglect Mr. Ewell whenever he speaks with you; he is genuinely an awful guy who is worthy of to be locked up. I confess that if it were me, I would have most likely sunk to his level, and called him names back, and even reached to strike him. I am still pretty surprised that Tom was convicted, even though Reverend Sykes informed me that he ‘d never seen a black guy beat a white man in court, I was still sure Tom would be the one to change that.
The truth that it was physically difficult for Tom to have devoted this crime made me favorable the jury would have cleared him. It just demonstrates how racist the jury were. But at least we made them think of it, and one of them understood they were making a mistake. Had there been just one more, they couldn’t have convicted him, how I want there had been one other individual on the jury who saw sense. As soon as once again I wish to thank you for letting me, Scout and Dill enjoy the decision, regardless of it protesting the desires of Aunt Alexandria and Calpurnia.
I feel all three of us have discovered a lot from this, and we got a very first hand experience of simply how racist Macycomb in fact is. I understood there was bigotry however I had no concept it was on this level, where a man who is so undoubtedly innocent is condemned due to the fact that he is black. I hope in the future we can convict individuals based upon the crimes they have committed, not on the colour of their skin. Finally, I wish to state, that this experience has let me see you in a different light, and I’m happy to be your boy.
