To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee
Boo Radely was unfairly treated by people he knew, he didn't know, and by a system of government. In Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Boo Radely was the extremely shy next door neighbor to Jem and Scout who had a rough life because of unfair treatment. When Boo was a teenager he was caught breaking the law, the law treated him unfairly by letting his father judge his punishment. Boo was set to go to a comfortable prison for a short time, but instead received a life long sentence of house-arrest by his father. Boo's father treated Boo unfairly by keeping him inside the house for the rest of his life. Boo was even harassed by the Finch children by their play depicting Boo's life, and their running and slapping of the house. Dear John, I'm sorry for judging you unfairly that one day. I was acting childish that one day when I thought you were a terrible skater. I didn't mean to call you those mean names, I didn't know you were just trying to hang with me and my friends. When you skated over to my friends and I, I thought you were trying to show off to us. I didn't know you just wanted to be with us and skate. I thought you wanted to show you were better than us which made me very angry. My friends were calling you a poser, and I joined in the taunting. I thought you were just going to yell at us back, but you just kept on skating. I know you probably thought I was a jerk, but I didn't know you just wanted to be one of us. When I went back home from skating, I realized that you were just trying to be nice, I became sad when I realized how I was so mean to you. I learned that you can't judge people by what you feel about them. I should have talked to you before making my judgement. In the future I will be careful on not making rash decisions like that. I am very sorry for the pain my friends and I caused you.
