We’ve seen through the TomRobinson trial the injustice in ourcommunity. The only solution tothis is in our future generations; wehave to raise our kids differently.As citizens of Maycomb we must redirectourselves toward a bettertomorrow and treat every citizenno matter of ethnic backgroundequally. After this trial we havewitnessed sorrow and a negativedivision amongst us as neighborsfor a man accused of a crime whichevidence clearly shows he did notcommit. After a verdict of TomRobinson being charged guilty wecan clearly see that there areissues that must be addressed inorder to re-form not only Maycombbut the society with the prejudicewe live in.
