• Recently, I read “To kill a mockingbird” (the screenplay) by Horton Foote. When I think about this part of the play it gives me satisfaction to know that a 6 year old may or may have not just saved the life of

    • Loreanny, I really enjoyed reading your interpretation of the book “To Kill a Mockingbird”. I think you had a very good analysis of the plot, and I highly agree with all the points you made. I also just watched a movie about racism called “Selma”. However, this movie touches on the voting rights act whereas your book touches more on slavery. If you want to learn more about discrimination, I would recommend watching this movie, and I would love to know your thoughts on it!

    • Loreanny, your interpretation of the book “To Kill a Mockingbird” was very interesting, and I love your comments about the racism. I think it’s very neat to see how seemingly nice people can secretly be horrible racists, just because you haven’t seen them interact with people of different colors. More recently, the KKK has actually been trying to rebrand to be less violent, which you might find interesting. Here’s a link to an article about it.

    • I too loved “To Kill a Mockingbird”! I’m glad you analyzed and enjoyed the book, and it’s weird to see these kinds of events still having an effect on the way we function societally today.

  • Love the way you describe yourself as in independent women who is passionate about her religion and school. I’m happy to see young women be so proud of their religions even when others bully and say nasty things. Some people just don’t have nothing good going on and rather put others down but that’s not you and I’m happy for you. Thank you for…[Read more]

  • Things are starting to get more interesting! In the screenplay To kill a mockingbird by Horton Foote. Scout is lucky to have an older brother like Jem. If she’s not thankful for him then she shall be called

    • DEAR LOREANNY,

      You have done a superb job here talking about Jem and hid sister Scout. you’ve explained how Jem and his sister never get along but Jem still helps her through their tough times. “Jem turns and looks in the same direction. Down the dirt road, drunk, toward the car, comes Bob Ewell. Jem is frightened and starts to leave the car, and then remembers the sleeping Scout. He climbs into the front seat beside his sister, all the while watching the approach of Ewell.” This proves that Jem is brave and caring. This shows how even though Jem and his brother a re always fighting, Jem will do anything for her. Jem was frightened and had no one there to protect them so, he decided to protect his even though she was sleeping. This truly shows what a good brother is.
