About 4,000 years ago, Hammurabi, the King of Babylon, made 282 laws to gain peace. In my opinion, I think that Hammurabi’s Code wasn’t just because it shows that is hurt family, it made people lose some kind of property, and it depended who you were in order to come up with a consequence for personal injury. First of all, it demonstrated that it hurt family. For instance, in Law 129, if a married lady is caught cheating, she will have her hands tied up and she will be drowned in water. Also, in Law 168, it states that if a son hits his father, his hands shall be cut off.

In The Kite Runner, shown in multiple ways, shame can be an extremely destructive force in an individual’s life by destroying relationships between loved ones. The force of shame triggered Amir to turn his back on his best friend whom he later finds out is his brother, Hassan. Amir framed Hassan by saying he stole from him, “I lifted Hassan’s mattress and planted my new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under it.” Amir was dishonored by not taking up for Hassan when he was in need of his assistance, so Amir’s shame caught up with him and assumed it would make matters better by attempting to have Baba get rid of him and Ali by framing him. Also, Amir disrespected Hassan and hit him in the chest with a pomegranate, “I hurled the pomegranate at him.” To me this was an attempt for Amir to test Hassan’s honor and respect by seeing if he would hit him back;
