There are many aspects of the code of ethics. In this essay I will be discussing how the communities in The Scarlet Letter, Our America, the film “The Crucible”, and my own community experience and interpret the value of family loyalty.
In the community in The Scarlet Letter, I don’t think that people have a sense of family loyalty because I would consider some of my close neighbors my family and in The Scarlet Letter if they really valued family loyalty they wouldn’t have treated Hester the way that they did.

I think that even though where they lived wasn’t the best place ever to live, they still valued and got to experience family loyalty.

For example, out of the times that LeAlan and Lloyd got caught in the middle of a shooting in the field in between their houses, they never once split up.
