Lennie didn't understand Crooks was setting an example so Lennoe got defensive "Who hurt George?" Crooks saw danger coming so he said "I was just supposin'," In this you can tell since Lenni doesn't really talk to people and that he has problems in his head he can't see that Crooks was just setting an example. The symptoms that isolation can cause aren't good. They cause more problems then to just give the outcasted a chance to show that they're different, kind, that they also have dreams and life
Secondly Henry was just following along to what the other soldiers did. Lastly, Henry was just plain old scared as they said “He ran like a coward.” The second war was like Henrys’ first brutal battle it was obviously too intense for him. If someone is entering their first brutal battle of course they are going to be scared and as they say “Henry quivered.”
I’d also tell them not to bully back because that would make everything worse, and he/she would also become a bully. Telling an adult is only when it gets serious, for she/he should first try to solve the problem. I’d also tell him/her to not let the bully know that she is upset, because that may result in the bully trying to tease her more, breaking her/him down. When I first acknowledged this as an abusive one was when I first learned that these acts were really considered ‘bullying’. I had always thought that it wasn’t, and that it was just them being mean.
”(Chapter 2, pg. 11) There’s an initial intimacy between Amir and Hassan. Later in the novel, we find out that the two boys have the same father. While the two are still children, after a local kite competition, Amir observes local delinquent Assef beat and rape Hassan. Amir does not help Hassan, and guilt-stricken, formulates a plan to get his father to send Hassan
Amir remembers Baba say that "If… [he] hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with … [his] own eyes, [he would] never believe he is… [his] son" (22). correspondingly, Amir wants to win Kabul’s annual kite fighting competition to attain Baba’s pride, and reflect his personality. On the day of the tournament, Amir cuts the last kite and watches as Baba and the crowd applaud for his victory; he sees the look of delight in his father’s eyes. However, Amir is not satisfied until he catches the last kite to impress his father even more—little did he know that by doing so he will risk the companionship of Hassan and the comfort of being
‘’I was a coward. I went to the war’’ Pg187. In the short story, ‘’On The Rainy River’’ by Tim O’Brien, The protagonist faces a difficult life decision, he did not want to conform to society the way others wanted him to. He wanted to keep his personal beliefs. Tim O’Brien does not want to conform no matter how vital it is that he should.
In any given situation when something impacting is happening in your surrounding many say to be an upstander and do the right thing but in reality many choose to be bystanders for the sake of their own good. In The Kite Runner, Amir chooses to be a bystander when witnessing his “friend” and servant Hassan get raped. He chooses not to intervene due to his fear of getting hurt, wanting his father’s desired approval and his fear of the judgement others would give him if he did intervene.
Another sign of sickness concerning PTSD is avoidance. One may begin avoiding people, places, feelings, or circumstances that may be a remembrance of the terrible and upsetting events. This can lead to feelings of lack of interest and separation from family and friends. This also includes loss of attention in activities that the person at one point in their life enjoyed. "I made sure our paths crossed as little as possible, planned my day that way" (Hosseini 89).
He wanted to live along without consequences” (2). The war had affected Krebs in ways that he never wanted to experience anything similar to it ever again. Krebs felt the need to talk about his experiences, but in order for anyone to listen at all, “he had to lie and after he had done this twice, he, too, had a reaction against the war and against talking about it” (1). But even after trying to talk about it, Krebs felt to traumatized to want to speak about the war. His inability to express his feelings causes Krebs to hurt others such as his mom unintentionally.
Many times he would just let Hassan take the blame for all of his problems. Amir and Hassan are not friends. Amir did not help his so called best friend Hassan when he was being attacked because he was scared of getting hurt, and putting himself out there. Whenever the attack first started Amir was there watching.
Emerging Themes Khaled Hosseini’s development of the character Amir, in the novel The Kite Runner, uncovers two emerging themes. Amir’s struggle with the death of Hassan goes over his guilt, and how guilt can cloud a person's judgement. Rahim Khan’s words effect Amir in a major way as well. When Rahim asks Amir to retrieve Hassan’s son he has a shot at redemption for what he has done hinting that in life it is never too late to make the right decision.
Similar to that of a kite’s composition, a degree of irony is woven into the friendship of Amir and Hassan. The kite’s characteristic beauty deceives onlookers as to its ruthless intentions; rather than simply displaying the kite’s graceful movements and appearance, kite fighters aim to destroy and capture their opponents. Likewise, while socially and culturally Amir is superior in education and power, an evaluation of loyalty and courage reveals that the lower-class Hazara servant maintains dominance. In fact, Hassan is able to forgive Amir for his betrayal decades before Amir is able to forgive himself, shown in his yearning “to rekindle things between [them]” (87-88). Amir understands his elevated social standing, but also recognizes Hassan’s superior self-confidence and forgiveness.
A feeling of motivation arises from individuals who are striving to fulfill the expectations that are set for them, whether they are real or assumed. They will use any means necessary to avoid being seen as a failure in the eyes of their loved ones, as well as to avoid the feeling of being distinct within society. Through their tenacious persistence they may, in turn, knowingly harm their loved ones. Nonetheless, their genuine desires are clouded by their desire of not wanting to fail the prospects attained by their community. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini suggests that when individuals are motivated to pursue the expectations that are set for them by society and themselves, they will use any means necessary to fulfill these prospects,
Deception is important to The Kite Runner because of how it changes the course of characters lives. ||Deception is defined as the act of deceiving someone. In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, deception is woven throughout the book like a web. In the past we have brought up as a class that the book is really about Hassan, just viewed through the lense of Amir. Since the book is told from Amir’s perspective, he is connected in some way to each of these lies.
