In the beginning of the novel, Baba was seen as a hero and a courageous person because he was always helping others and lived by his own moral code, but once his secret was out and Amir realizes that Baba was filled with remorse, Amir saw him differently. To Amir, his childhood seemed like a lie but at the same time, made more sense. An example from the novel is in chapter 18, when Amir says; “How could I have been so blind? The signs had been there for me to see all along [...] I remembered the day we were planting tulips, when I had asked Baba if he’d ever consider getting new servants. Hassan’s not going anywhere, he’d barked.
Amir threw pomegranates at Hassan and framed Hassan for thief. The rest of the story shows Amir trying to redeem himself for his betrayal. Baba also betrayed Ali by sleeping with his wife. Although Baba died before he could make up for his sins, Amir atoned for both of their past mistakes by adopting Sohrab and taking care of

Then another time, I came in from outside with my hands full of anthuriums. I looked up at him, and I thought why not. I set up a vase on the table right under his picture… I don’t know if that’s how it started, but pretty soon, I was praying to him, not because he was worthy or anything like that. I wanted something from him, and prayer was the only way I knew to ask” (Alvarez 202).

The situational irony used reveals the contrary character of Anders when he was young, compared to his character during the story reveals the entire truth to the reader. The reader expected Anders to die because of how his character was throughout the story, but yet that was never truly him. He turned out to be that character, because the events he experienced throughout his life is what conformed him to the character the reader initially assumed him to be. Clearly, Anders does not regret who he has become because what he went through was not a walk in the park and it was brought upon him by his peers. He remained to be who he was - cranky, blunt, and rude - even when his life was literally seconds away from being taken from him.

No, this my hand will rather The multitudinous seas in incarnadine, Making the green one red.” (Pg. 183; 2.2.61). Macbeth recognizes the magnitude of his actions seeing that no matter how hard he may scrub there will always be a blood stain beneath the surface for having done such a terrible crime, something which will only build throughout the rest of the play.

Self pity was not a friend of Joseph. The false rape charge did not cause him to turn from his maker. Joseph maintains his uprightness even in the ace of wrong, and he became second in charge of the enemy’s nation. Joseph’s bush experience was many, when the former prisoner forgot him- the fire was not consumed, when his employer’s wife lied on him. The fire was not consumed, when his brothers plotted to destroy him, the fire was not consumed, because as long as we maintain the flame, the enemy can mean it for evil, but God Yahweh, he who dwelt in the bush….
Because the men had seen so much in Vietnam and because of how the war was fought (Guerrilla warfare), they had little to no remorse when gunning down children and woman. They were so tired of fighting the “unknown enemy,” this can be seen in the soldier 's testimonies, “I didn’t discriminate between individuals in the village, sir. They were all the enemy, they were to be destroyed, sir.” (141) However, John never intended to kill the innocent. He saw the same soldiers that he fought with for the past few months brutally massacring the villagers that were trying to flee for their lives. This was the climax of the war for John, he would forever be changed by what he saw in My Lai and would take many months in order to get over what happened.

Not till they flagged and the chant died away, did he speak.
