Tom Robinson was the honest, helpful and most trustworthy person I have ever known. As long as I remember, Tom has never meant to harm anyone. As a respectful person and a good neighbor he was always first to help someone in need. Right now the person who was supposed to be sitting beside me, with his child in his lap is sleeping in god's lap. Not only me but also everyone else in Maycomb knows that Tom was innocent man and has never done anything to Mayella, but still he was sentenced to jail just because his skin was black.
I was always inspired by his habit of helping out other people and giving them respect, but now I feel sorry for his help. All the things that happened to Tom makes me think that in this world now its crime to help a helpless girl. Tom was the only support for his wife and children, which is also taken away from them. Even though whites blamed him for something he wouldn't do he would want us to have respectful behavior with them. Well now it doesn't matter that he was innocent or not, because he is now dead.
I grew up with Tom in same community and experienced as same prejudice as him, but I never controlled my self as much as Tom. Tom was very strong-hearted person, but he wasn't strong enough to fight prejudice. Tom always respected other person even though they insulted him. Right now in heaven he would be thinking good of Mayella and would be praying if someone can help her out. In conclusion I will pray that it wouldn't happen to anyone else what happened to Tom.
