I feel that you should define a person by their intentions. It took a long time to get this answer. I kept going back and forth to the point where I followed Mr. B around the library listening to people and their sides. After 45 minutes of this I still had no answer, so I kept thinking and thinking.
Then I did some more thinking when I remembered that my cousin had one of her friends witness his friends hit and run accidents. The kid that got hit didn’t survive. The driver of that car didn’t intend on hitting and killing that child, but he probably will go to jail because those people on the jusry will define him by his actions. Yes his actions were horrible and everyone wishes that this never happened, but it was (I hate using this word here…) an accident. He didn’t mean to. Why would anybody want to do this to an innocent child.
Another example is the way we vote for president. President Obama gave us a whole bunch of promises, but there were no actions before we voted. If we voted on his action then we would never be able to choose a president. He won the election because he had better and more enticing intentions. People trusted him more and believed his intentions.
This is why I feel that you should define people by their intentions.
