Atticus defines true courage as when you fight for what is right regardless of whether you win or lose and demonstrates it multiple times in the novel. Jem demonstrates courage when he tries to stop Bob Ewell from harming Scout. He tells Scout to run while trying to help her escape but ends up getting hurt. He also shows courage when refusing to leave Atticus alone at the jail cell in chapter 15. Scout was the one that truly got the men to leave but if Jem had not refused
It is like in the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” where the person needs perseverance to one day be successful like Atticus in his trial for Tom Robinson. It is part of the universal theme responsibility because it is their responsibility to take the chances given to them, no one can force them to take them.

Having you in my life is beyond an honor I love you, I adore you and worship the air you breath.. 2. I'm sorry, forgive me: I really do not enjoy the fact that your mood has altered.

On the other hand I had to consider the reactions of the white population of Macomb, which could not only result in harm coming to me but also to my two children scout and jem who had already suffered to much loss with the death of their mother. After consideration I chose to help the man even though the case was unwinnable as a white jury would always convict a black man. My desision did not only fall on this, over my children’s life I have driven to teach them strong values and hopefully by observing this case they would see the wrong occurring in the world as not all people are treated equally.

People aren't willing to accept change and theirs not much you can do in the 1930's to change that because it was "sociality acceptable" not to.
