Yes! Yes! Yes! Every story need Atticus. When I go back to some of the best novels I have read there always was this godly character that defines our moral standards and acts as our conscience. I just have to go back to Father Zosima (The Brother's Karamazov) or even prior Philip of (The pillars of the earth) and I know what makes a great novel. My favorite part of the book is Atticus saying: 101. "what real courage is ...when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." or "Before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience"
