“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”
-Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1960
A conscience is a very individual thing. We can’t peak inside someone else’s mind to find out just how they arrive at decisions. But we can look at our own thought process. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a book that really explores the whole concept of conscience. I’m glad that my son will be reading it in school this year, we will have some great conversations about it. I can’t help but picture Gregory Peck as Atticus. I love the way he portrayed this man who was so compelled to follow his conscience. I love the example that this character set for his children.
