In to Kill a Mockingbird, morality is important. Atticus was asked to be Tom Robinson's lawyer. Of course, Atticus accepted because Atticus is good. He would do anything to keep everything in good order. He knew that many people did not like Tom because of his color. Atticus did not give up and he tried his best. During the trial, he did everything he could to show that Tom was innocent but the court decided he was guilty. This only happened because tom was black. Although he did not succeed, Atticus did was right and proved that Tom was innocent.
