As a child, I fell in love with Scout and Atticus Finch. Scout for her curiosity and innocence, Atticus for his true adherence to non violence and humility. I may not have comprehended the nuances or messages of the novel then, but would fall even more in love with the novel in later years.
This weekend, I'll pick up my well-read copy of To Kill a Mockingbird and celebrate its 50th birthday. I hope you do the same or, if you've never read it, go to your library or book store and get a copy!
Happy Birthday, Scout!
