From a middle-schooler's essay on the quote, "Don't judge a person until you walk a mile in his shoes."
"I also know something about don't judge a book by its cover, it is an expression about judging people before you know how they really are. For example, you see a black person and you automatically hate them for being black! And you be a jerk to him. Then you notice that the person is all alone and take things from kind people and is always being bullied. So you try to make friends with them and you like him and you learn he has no family and is actually cool and you regret being a jerk to him and give him a place to stay and eat."
