“Her daughter called her for help when her own attempts at suicide failed” (Laville1). Lynn just wanted to die and end her long suffering. The judge also had something to say about this case “there is no dispute that you were a caring and loving mother and that you were acting in the best interests of your daughter” (Laville2). This clearly states that even the judge of her case thought she was doing the right thing. Kay did her daughter a favor out of the kindness and loving in her heart.
After going through experimental drug treatment, which were unsuccessful, Mrs. Adkins decided to contact Dr. Kevorkian. Janet Adkins was still living her life as normal as any other healthy person.

I understand that the women suffered from postpartum depression with psychosis but that never stopped her from doing anything before. I feel that that was just a way for Washington to free itself from some of the blame and not take responsibility for what happened at all. She has a daughter that has to grow up without her mother all because of what. No one will ever really know. The only person that knew Miriam’s plans for that day was Miriam
Courage is a very important quality that many people have and try to achieve. Real courage is not only shown when a man has a gun on his hand but when you stand up to what is wrong and attempt to make it right even if there are consequences. In the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, Atticus, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley show real courage in their own way even though they know what the aftermath may look like. They face their fears for the good of themselves and others. As I have stated, real courage is when you fight for what is right regardless of whether you win or lose.

Although Jem believes that Mrs. Dubose is a thoroughly bad woman, Atticus admires her for the courage with which she battles her morphine addiction. In one chapter, Jem breaks Mrs. Dubose’s camellia plan and his punishment was to read at her house for a month or two for an hour a day. Jem hated every minute of this, but taught him some good lessons. The responders get a sense of this woman “hating everything and everyone” when the character is introduced, again, as with Boo and Atticus, we see that there is much doubt and misjudgement to her. Atticus considers her one of the bravest people he knows and he wanted Jem to see that about her.
Some people, rather than listening to what the law says should be done, listen to what their conscience suggests is right or wrong. In To Kill a Mockingbird there are two main people who act as moral compasses in the town of Maycomb, and one person who is definitely the opposite of a moral compass. Atticus and Jean Louise Finch were both excellent examples of moral compasses, because they both showed people the right thing to do, whereas Mayella Ewell did the wrong thing and was not showing the honourable thing to do. Only some people can be a moral compass for others and it takes a great deal of courage to become one. Atticus Finch not only took the case of a black man, but went against everyone’s beliefs that black people were lower, and actually tried to defend Tom Robinson from a crime that he was wrongfully accused of doing.
Her sickness justified taking it, but the addiction was a terrible side-effect to taking it in high doses regularly. Mrs. Dubose was a terrifically fortuitous woman, however. She didn’t want a painless death addicted; she wanted to suffer a free woman. This was in response to Jem throwing a tantrum after receiving Mrs. Dubose’s dying gift of the Snow-on-the-mountain: “‘Sh-h,’ he said, ‘I think that was her way of telling you-everything’s all right now, Jem, everything’s all right. You know, she was a great lady.’” (Lee 147).
To Kill a Mockingbird – Courage To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a heroic tale of leadership and courage. Courage is the ability and willingness to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. According to Atticus Finch, “Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It’s knowing you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” (Lee, 149).
If he missed Tim Johnson the shot would have gone right into the Radley’s house that is why the sheriff Heck Tate did not want to shoot Tim Johnson. It would have taken courage from Atticus to shoot the gone even though he could have missed and killed someone. Later in the story at the trial Scout over hears a conversation of a group of old men and one of them in the group says ‘“You know the court appointed him to defend the n*****.”’ Another says “‘Yeah, but Atticus aims to defend him. That’s what I don’t like about it”’ (Lee 163). During this time people that defended African Americans did not try very hard to win, but Atticus tried to the best of his abilities which is wrong in the minds of most people.
