Essay 2 – Sticks and Stones Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. This sentence is from an old children’s poem about not letting bullies taunt you. Bullying is the main theme in the short story Sticks and Stones by Trezza Azzopardi, which is about a young man, who has been bullied as a child. This has made him traumatized and made him live his entire life running away from his problems and hiding instead of dealing with his difficulties. The young man’s name is Lewis and he is a teacher.
He continues in the first six lines, and declares that he feels so alone, and doesn’t know whether or not he can control the life he is trying to lead. In life it is hard to know whether we are doing what is right, and counting on others to guide you through our own life.

They began to see their son in terms of his own uniqueness, and get a sense of his identity, individuality, separateness, and worth.
This idea can be seen through Atticus Finch extremely well. He grew up in an overly prejudice time, yet all he tries to do is help people, and tries to teach his children to do the same thing. For instance, on page 30, he is trying to teach Scout not to judge people because she didn’t always know the other person view of things, or their side of the story. “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” -Atticus Finch. Even with her Father’s prompting she doesn’t seem to understand, as she clearly has prejudice towards people like the Ewells and Cuninghams just for being poor, or different than her.
