    In class we read a passage from Harper Lee's novel, To Kill A Mockingbird. The passage was from Atticus Finch's scene in the court room. This is one of his great heroic moments in the novel and helped my see that heroes sometimes put themselves at risk when protecting someone else.

    Chose Amy Chua to be my hero
    The title of the book is Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. It is about an Asian mother living in the United States who tries to raise her children the Chinese way. I think this will be interesting because she starts out trying to be the hero in her childrens' lives and I'm curious to see if she succedes.
