The culture and religion of middle eastern countries has been split for hundreds of years. This division comes from the two constantly conflicting sections of Islam, the Sunnis and Shiites. This same conflict is prevalent in The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini between the cultural groups of the Pashtuns and the Hazaras. This economic and cultural division created tensions between Baba and Ali, and subsequently Amir and Hassan; the course of their lives took drastically different courses after the fall of Afghanistan and the rise of the Taliban.

Although it depends on the situation, in most cases we usually do drag our issues wih us wherever we go for the most time. This is because for most people no matter if they change the setting or location it does not solve or change the troubles or issues they are having. No matter where they are or what they are doing to distract their minds it is still going to be in the back of their minds. A good example of this is found in The Kite Runner even though Amir saw Hassan get sexually assualted a long time ago and even moved to America but his past still haunted him and he could not escape it.
