Harper Lee made us stare prejudice and injustice in the face, and made us want to aspire to be an Atticus Finch. I also love Scout and Jem, those kid So. There are a few issues that arose on a re-reading of the novel, having grown myself as a reader since I first encountered this lovely book. I find it insanely sad that even though this book was published more than 50 years ago, has also been used as an educational book for countless young students and even with countless histories to learn from, it seems that some human will never ever learn from hem and the main problems depicted in this book is still very evident in our time.
