Despite so, she still rescued David and Rosalind from the Fringes, even though they are weaker in terms of telepathic capabilities compared to Petra.
Like Atticus says when he’s talking to Jem, “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.” Your opinion of Mrs. Dubose might change as you read on the book, because in the beginning she comes across as cranky, rude, and an unfriendly old lady that is always looking for peoples flaws and a fight to start. As you keep reading though, you learn about her morphine addiction and how she manages to overcome it before she dies. And that’s the reason on why Atticus doesn’t treat her as bad as she treats him. Atticus knows that even though her opinion was sometimes not wanted and not always nice to hear, it was what she thought and it was her opinion and she was just speaking her mind. And that’s why Atticus
Mrs. Dubose, a sick, old lady may not be one whose courage shows on her exterior. This woman often criticized Jem and Scout and other children who passed the porch where she was confined. Mrs. Dubose suffered as a morphine-addict, whose pain-killers often led her to say nasty things to the children about anything she could think up, mostly about their father being a nigger-lover. She would also tell Scout that she shouldn’t be wearing overalls, and should dress like a lady. Her fits could be described as reaching out for attention, and fighting against the sickness that was slowly breaking down her system, however; it was also the medicine that put her in such pain and caused her to strike out at others.

She also comes off as someone who is naïve, rude and lacks respect. Her mother on the other hand is very patient kind and has a heart to help people hence the name Mrs. Hopewell. Mrs. Hopewell is able to withstand the constant visits from Mrs. Freeman who like her name goes by is very loose with her mouth, always talking about the shortfalls of her sick daughter, Carramae (193). Mrs. Hopewell comes off as a model character that the author uses to demonstrate ‘good country people’.
American's don't deal with death very well One of the things that is interesting to me from the material that we read is that American's really don't deal with death very well. I agree with that, and think that we tend to ignore death and push it out of our minds until it confronts us or someone we love. I think that by including terminal illness, aging and death as an accepted part of our lives, we might be better able to cope with the hard emotions when the time comes. Children, and even adults, tend to learn about death only when they experience a loved one’s death. I’m reminded of my grandmother’s death when I was a teenager.
Bipolar Teresa Martini Rasmussen College Author Note This research paper is being submitted on September 16, 2011, for Ann Henson’s G124 English Composition Course. People who have been diagnosed with bipolar often have to virtually live in silence about their illness. They are afraid to talk to other people about their mental illness because they may be avoided or even worse become the subject of discrimination. Bipolar is a treatable and manageable mental illness but due to the stigma attached to it by society and those who do not understand it, the psychological well being and life satisfaction of those diagnosed with it are jeopardized. Bipolar can be treated and managed in effective ways.

Finally, patients who are severely ill want to die on their own terms, not prolonging their life more than they have to.
