Rasheed’s cruelty inflicted on Mariam reflects his belief in the male-run Afghani society as he struggles to maintain control and remain on top. For Mariam, Rasheed’s abuse reveals her willingness to sacrifice for what she loves. From Mariam’s endurance, to Rasheed’s abuse, to her ultimate sacrifice, she becomes a strong woman in juxtaposition to the impassiveness of how he treated her once before. By adding cruelty to the novel, Hosseini adds depth and complexity to the characters, revealing their values and other character traits. In another way, Hosseini also reveals how cruelty in itself is driven by self interest.

Refugees are often forced to flee their home due to war just like Ha. Today, more than 60 million refugees from the Middle East have fled their homes due to the advancement of ISIS (Graham,1). Like Ha, their lives will also turn “inside out” as they face a large amount of harassment from wherever they are able to find safety, but eventually they will find peace with whomever they are surrounded by and turn “back
Human beings are obligated to treat other human beings with respect and kindness. When they aren’t fulfilling their duties as human beings, it is also a person’s duty to stand up for each other and keep peace, morality, and humanity at the center of life. Syrian refugees are the unfortunate group of people that have been affected by the negligence of humankind. They are being dehumanized by their own people and by treatment that has no excuse or justification to be executed. The same crisis that is taking place in the middle east can happen anywhere at anytime, all it takes is corruption and humanity’s inherently evil nature to dismantle moral civilization.

When I was fourteen-years-old, I first saw the photograph of the Afghan Girl on the cover of National Geographic. She was a refugee of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan captured in a single frame of Steve McCurry’s camera. The oceanic coloration of her eyes and the ghost-like expression on her face captivated my attention, just as it had captivated the attention of the Western world in 1985. Her photograph brought me into a world of refugees, from Rwanda, during the genocide, to Sudan, during the genocide, to Iraq, during the 2003 invasion. So, it was her ghostly face and sea green eyes I remembered when the refugee crisis in Europe arose.
Sometimes we as human beings have so much going on in our life’s that we get so caught up with it. We do not realize that other people in our community or in our world there are many children that are getting abused or hurt by their families.

Although, as an individual I do not feel I can achieve much impact, I do believe that sharing the messages presented in the film will bring greater understanding to others and from there a stronger force can be achieved.
