The 1962 movie, To Kill A Mockingbird, is a great classic that has longevity, especially when screened in classrooms to supplement the events of the 1960s.
Ironically, it deals with issues that are very real today, during the second decade of the new millennium, over fifty years later. For those of us living during 2014 and 2015, we have seen “race versus the police” issues.
In this environment, half a century later, one can see an Atticus Finch today fighting for inequalities. It’s an uphill battle as many courtroom decisions have not favored the Atticus Finch lawyers of today.
Despite this, what Atticus Finch stands for will forever open our eyes to the justice he brought into the courtroom. This justice may even be regarded as ideals. Should we not believe in these ideals, it can’t be helped, that once again, Atticus Finch would ask why we don’t.
