“Hey, Atticus”

by Bianca

I don’t think its pure coincidence that I took up To Kill a Mockingbird in 3rd year high school, a year after my own father died. Atticus Finch became my 2nd dad, and I’d like to thank not only Harper Lee for writing such a strong and inspiring character, but also Gregory Peck for playing the role so effortlessly and naturally, like this role was meant for him. Watching him interact with both Jem and Scout made me realize that while my papa may be gone, I always have Atticus Finch to keep me company. Thank you again Gregory Peck.
