When I was a little boy, I had a few heroes. I loved Horatio Hornblower, Cyrano de Bergerac, Batman, and Atticus Finch. They were, in a certain sense, role models for me then like the Kardashians are for today’s children.
Imagine my disappointment in learning than a school is banning To Kill A Mockingbird because it makes people uncomfortable.
“There’s a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep ’em all away from you. That’s never possible.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
