Character Cocktail: Atticus Finch

To make an Atticus Finch, you will need...

For my dad, whom I miss every day,

...who was also from the south...

...who also taught me right from wrong...

...who also wasn't perfect but he tried...

in honor of his birthday.

2 parts justice

1 part honor

Serve neat, in court

I played this after my father passed away. I always think of him when I think of this character, when I think of his character and how he wanted us to be good people, moral people, to put ourselves in the shoes of others. He would say of South Carolina: "I got over the wall. Why would I ever go back?"

Ps. We're going to pretend that sequel/prequel never happened.
