Bravery

There’s a great quote in the book describing bravery as “when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”… Atticus Finch exemplified this character throughout the book, even in the face of the darkest evil and the worst outcomes.

Michael is writing a book report for To Kill A Mockingbird, one of my all-time favorite books. There’s a great quote in the book describing bravery as “when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”

I like that quote. Bravery isn’t something that happens in the moment. It’s calculated character. It’s moral fiber that evaluates a situation and is actually able to do what is right even when it seems to be the most foolish thing in the world. Atticus Finch exemplified this character throughout the book, even in the face of the darkest evil and the worst outcomes. And I hope when all is said and done, I will have too.
