Huckleberry FInn

Every person at some point in their life will have to make a choice based on their moral beliefs. These decisions can show what a person believes in right from the start. Usually it is based on their beliefs taught to them from their elders. However, heroes are those who grow and make choices unsupported by their peers, especially concerning civil rights, and prove to be true moral. They are intrinsic care of fellow human beings. In Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the main character Huck, makes two very important moral decisions. Thefirst being how he treats Jim when hefirst meets him at Jackson's Island and the second is to tear up the letter to Miss Watson out of his love for Jim. Both are unorthodox to his era, and would receive chastisement if seen by his social members. Both are conscientiously made, based on his beliefs.
When Huckfirst runs way from Pap he goes to Jackson's Island and thinks he is alone there. He soon discovers that "Miss Watson's Jim," is taking refuge there as well. Many people during this era would detest being alone on an island with a "nigger." Huck, on the other hand is happy to have someone to keep him company, a companion in his expeditions. He is color blind, a trait mature to this era, and not accepted at all. To him Jim is a fun, kind, man that treats him like a son. He could not care less what color he is. Atfirst Jim thinks he sees Huck's ghost and is petrified. Huck eases Jim's feelings by changing the subject and saying, "It's good daylight, le's get breakfast." This statement shows not only his true life form, but also his willingness to mingle with Jim. Jim is paranoid that Huck is going to tell people of his running away, but he then decides that he will tell Huck his reasoning for running. Jim asks Huck if he is going to tell anyone about his running away!
