FC: Atticus Finch
3: My name is Atticus Finch and I am a lawyer in Maycomb county. It is pretty difficult trying to balance work and my children. I have two crazy and sophisticating kids named Jeremy Finch but we call him Jem. He is my oldest. My youngest is named Jean Louise Finch and we call her Scout. Their mother passed long ago when Scout was born. But we have a generous African American that has been working on the Landing for a really long time. Her name is Calpurnia.
5: The two important people in my life are my two kids, Jem and Scout. They are my life. They are the strongest people I know. I am proud that they still stayed strong throughout the case between Tom Robinson and Robert Ewell. Everyone called me so many names and I could see it in their eyes that they were hurt very badly. I am very sorry that I had to put them through all the stress. But I am very proud of them. Family is my number one priority.
6: The case between Tom Robinson vs. Robert Ewell taught me a lot. Tom especially taught me a lot. He taught me not to die under other persons terms He died on his terms. I was the only man in Maycomb that could have defended him. All the white Americans thought he was guilty but we all knew that he was innocent. | The mob attack that was going to take place in front of the jail cell that Tom was in taught me a lot too. Those seemed to be the most important events in my life so far. Scout, Dill and Jem all of sudden come out of the trees. I was so shocked I told Jem three times to go back home but he refused and Scout started to greet Mr. Cunningham and she said a lot of deep things to him and Mr. Cunningham and the mob left.
7: Books are one of my favorite possessions to always have with me. It always gives me something to do and I am always fascinated with the new things I learn from the books. I learn new things everyday. Also, since I am a lawyer I really need to get common sense from the eyes of other people.
8: I used to be the sharp shooter of Maycomb county and I all of a sudden stopped shooting because I realized that my talent was not a talent that I personally wanted. It was a talent made for men that could careless about anything. I had not touched a rifle in about seven years and when that mad dog was coming into town I had no choice but shoot it. I did not like how my kids saw me shoot but they thought it was the coolest thing they have seen. I shot the dog in one shot and then it died.
