Do you not believe we need more compassion and tolerance in the world Why can we not be like Atticus Jem or Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee These characters show great compassion and tolerance throughout the novel despite the society they live in They have the courage to stand up for what they believe in Atticus shows great compassion and tolerance when he stands up for the Negroes He stands up and represents Tom Robinson because he believes that everyone should be treated equally in the court of law He knows that because Tom was a Negro there would be a slim chance of winning That fact never discouraged him though because he says that the main reason he is representing Tom is because if I didnt I couldnt hold up my head in town I couldnt represent this county in the legislature 75 He recited a speech which clearly states that Tom Robinson is not guilty In that speech he says our courts have their faults as does any human institution but in this courts are the great levelers and in our courts all men are created equal 205 He believed that prejudice and stereotyping is wrong and he tries to teach these morals to Scout and Jem Jem displays values like compassion and tolerance by believing that all men are created equal no matter which race religion or attitude they have He shows this when he hears the verdict of Tom Robinsons trial It was Jems turn to cry His face was streaked with angry tears as we made our way through the cheerful crowd It aint right he muttered all the way to the corner of the square where we found Atticus 212 This is the first time he realizes that there was injustice in the world He slowly matures and begins to understand that there are such thing as prejudice and racism Scout first learns
