Ideals are like stars we never reach them but like the mariners of the sea we chart our courses by them This quote taken from Carl Schurz sums up a large portion of mans travel down lifes path Most of us spend the majority of our lives pursuing goals but few ever reach the climax of their planned accomplishment A mans struggle to reach his person ideal is accounted in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird written by Alabamian author Harper Lee through a series of events circling a court case A social drama set in the rural county of Maycomb Alabama relates the events surrounding a dark trial from a young girls standpoint The defendant a black man wrongly accused of the raping and beating of a white woman was not the only one put on trial also being tried by Maycombian society is Atticus Finch the Negros lawyer This trial is not one of legal matters but rather a personal one for Atticus Throughout the novel he fights to keep on the right track en route to the stars What appealed to myself as a reader was his undetoured course in reaching his person ideals and set of morals his resolute refusal to yield to social pressure his ardent sense of racial equality and his ability to risk great sacrifice to remain true to what he believes in Atticus has an amazing adherence to his morals even when surrounded by general disapproval Atticus and his principles still stand fast Atticus tells Scout No matter what anybody says to you dont you let em get your goat which acutely demonstrate his indifference to public opinion Despite the opposition of the majority of the county despite the rank gossiping and despite the fact that failure was imminent Atticus Finch still did what he had to He knew that the case could not be won and even admitted it to both Scout and Uncle Jack
