#AtticusFinch VS. #JakeBrigance #fanart by #illustrator Jamaal R. James for #jcaaec

So yesterday thought about Atticus Finch and how he was a great role model. If you dont know him he’s the main protagionist and he’s also the lead in the film to kill a Mocking Bird. I like Atticus because he’s the strong silent type who stands up for what he beleives even as the whole town turns on him. But oh well for his belief he has to do this. He loses in the end because he was outnumbered and at the time our country was different but that didn’t stop him from trying. And for that Atticus your my Hero.  Now Jake Brigance (sorry Matthew the illustration didn’t do you justice) has his hands full because as he defended the man who killed the guys who raped his kid he has guys trying to harm him (for doing what’s right) and the town turns against him as well.  **Sidenote Jake Brigance looks like Jordan Peterson. Another Hero of mine for telling it like it is. And asking that you taking personal responsibility for your level of success and not blame the system. Equality of opportunity is a real reality now. But equality of out come isn’t possible because some people are better than others at things. If you want to be good at mountain climbing then you better start doing pulls ups or just complain that the mountain climbers are mean because you won’t take the time to learn mountain climbing.  Back to Jake Brigance he still did what he needed to do and in the end it turns out well. That’s enough ranting. Lastly Muses thanks for inspiring Harper Lee to write, Gregory Peck to act, John Grisham for writing, and Matthew McConaughey and the all the other things that happened so these wonderful works of art could be created. Thanks for all the people who have helped our society move forward to the place we are now. Thank goodness we live in a county where we are free to express ourselves. That’s all. Folks. Thanks for these insights your humble servant. JJ. I hope to be half as Great as these Greats that can before me.
