Judge Taylor ends up being very helpful towards Tom; no other white person besides Atticus would take the time to think about a black man.

When the case ends its fair to say Judge wasn’t exactly happy with the outcome, partially because Tom has to go to jail to pay his time. Beyond his feelings, Judge Taylor continues to try his best to make people realize how innocent Tom really
Atticus Finch As My Influence Atticus Finch was a man who fought for what he believed in. What he believed in was justice; the quality of being fair and reasonable. He is an influence on me for mainly that reason. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus Finch played Scout’s father and a lawyer; a good one at that.

You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227). Huck is trying to follow what society views as normal. Although he attempts to pray for it, he knows he cannot because it is not what is right. The reason Huck is unable to pray what he wanted is because, in his heart, he knows it is wrong.

Courage is also an additional strength you need. The reason you would need perseverance is so that even when times are tough, you still keep on going.
