What is being loyal to someone, how can it be seen? Why is it that when one is betrayed, that is all that they think about night and day?

Loyalty and betrayal are two conflicting characters, yet they find a way to bring out one another. A person cannot represent one quality without showing the other; to show complete loyalty, one must betray another in a way. Whether out of good or evil intentions, a person will show an act of loyalty, which will end in betrayal. In William Shakespeare's Macbeth, loyalty and betrayal are displayed in the play.

In The Kite Runner, Khalid Hosseini writes that Amir makes mistakes, and because of that, it takes his entire life to redeem himself. Throughout The Kite Runner, Amir is looking for redemption. One of the reasons why Amir redeems himself was to fix the wrong he did to Hassan in his childhood. On the other hand, many may believe that Amir didn’t earn anything and rather wasted his time in Afghanistan. It might be thought that Amir did not revert his wrong to Hassan and did not redeem himself. Amir was able to do this in various ways throughout the book, especially towards the end. The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini shows that Amir is able to redeem himself from the wrong he did to Hassan by putting himself in danger to rescue Sohrab, by receiving a scar from the fight with Assef signifying his redemption, and finally by bringing Sohrab back to United States with him.

Therefore, forgiveness is the key for people to live in peace and happiness. Amir had to deal with pain and pleasure of forgiveness and truly shows the power to affect someone’s life.
In the book slaughterhouse five, Billy Pilgrim mentions a character, Roland Weary. Weary was the most favorable person back home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately these tend to be some of the most broken structures in life whether your trust is held within a: friendship, stranger, family bonds or a romantic affair with a loved one.

In a contrasting set up, as a young boy the narrator has his father that he looks

When you betray someone, you basically stab them in the back and your loyalty no longer lies with them.
