Sacrifice

This was a project where I would need to find three quotes from To Kill a Mockingbird that apply to the theme that I chose. I chose the theme sacrifice for my project. I chose to make my project on Microsoft PowerPoint.  I enjoyed this project because for my theme I chose to get pictures of armies which was very different from what I usually use for school projects. I could of improved my tense because I was switching from past to present and back to past. I learned that if I choose a topic that I am interested in I can achieve a much higher grade with great ease

 To Kill a Mockingbird

 

 

                In the book To Kill a Mockingbird there are many different examples of sacrifice. In the famous court case of this book of Tom Robinson against the Ewells Tom sacrifices his court case by bringing emotion to his side with this quote: “Yes, suh. I felt right sorry for her, she seemed to try more’n the rest of ‘em-“  (Lee 196). Tom Robinson sacrificed his court case and lost. In the court system when emotion comes into a court case then that side of the case is not the truth whereas if the person is just listing facts without emotion then its truth. Tom Robinson sacrificed his freedom and life with this daring stab at compassion.

 

                Atticus has to face a challenge every day from racist farmers that want Tom Robinson dead. Atticus often puts himself after other people and has to sacrifice his own well being to stand up for what he wants. He is confronted by a group of farmers “Shadows became substances the lights revealed solid shapes moving toward the jail door. Atticus remained where he was. The men hid him from view.” (Lee 151). Atticus stood by the door and protected Tom Robinson with his life that night. The cruel irony of this ordeal was ended by a young girl craving a conversation. Atticus came out of this commotion uninjured.

 

                Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird is a character surrounded by mystery and gothic culture. Boo has inspired the children and adults of Maycomb to constantly wonder about the world that is unknown to them. Boo Radley has remained in a fog of confusion and rumors until he saves Scout and Jem finch. Scout instantly knows who it is “Hey, Boo,” (Lee 270). Boo sacrificed his immortality as a legend to save two young town children that were going to die. Boo made himself into a real man again not a fictitious god.

 

                The song “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones is one of the most popular songs in history.  I chose this song because when I listened to its lyrics it reminded me of sacrifice. I also chose this song because I could not find another song fit for sacrifice like “Gimme Shelter”. Those are the reasons why I chose “Gimme Shelter” for my song.

“Gimme Shelter”

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
