When I ask my mother where he got them from she says that he had them before she met him and never asked. I then ask her if he was in Cambodia in the 1970’s she says “nah, he got out before then”. Being told all this I still know that there was a significant amount of lying, and not much truth. Knowing this I began to research what life was like in Cambodia in the 1970’s and saw what an atrocious time it was. There were so many people that got killed during this time and I was thankful that my father got out before all that, or did he?
Argument Essay My Lai Massacre is an undeniable example of how a “typical American” can commit such evil and dehumanize his fellowman. But were they just following orders? In the military you are trained to kill and trained to follow orders. When you are fighting for your life, watching others in your platoon die, and told you are going to face the enemy, does a mob mentality take over, a survival of the fittest, if you will, or are you able to see it for what it was; a massacre of unarmed civilians. Given the right circumstances anyone can be capable of evil.
Atticus thought that it was Jem but the sheriff said that Bob Ewell fell on his knife. The person that really killed Bob Ewell was Boo Radley and the sheriff hides that fact to protect Boo Radley from trials in court. For readers to be able to tell that it was Boo Radley who killed Bob Ewell they had to pay attention to quotes like “Thank you Arthur….. Thank you for my children” (Lee chap 31). The Author gives readers clues and makes them think to figure out questions, she never gives a straight out answer.

Many men in town including his father were going after him while Lupito went into hiding, but as young Antonio follows the men he sees Lupito hiding in the brush near the river, where Antonio was hiding as well. This part of the book shows his innocence because when Lupito was shot, Antonio runs away from the body even though Lupito’s last words were “ Bless me..” Later on in the novel when Antonio witnesses other killings such as Narciso, he runs to him and although he is not yet a priest he follows Narcisco’s wishes and prays for him and gives him confession. “I prayed, ‘Oh my God, I am sorry for all of my sins, not because I dread the fires of hell, but because they displease you, Lord, Who art all good, and deserving of all my love-and with thy help, I will sin no more-’Then I made the sign of the cross over him.” (170) This quote shows how Antonio handled Narciso’s death in a calm way and he didn’t let fear stop him even though an evil, unholy man was responsible for his death. But for Lupito’s death, although he wished to be blessed just like Narciso wished for, fear stopped young Antonio. His adolescence was very clear during the scene of Lupito’s death near the beginning of the novel.
