However he is unable to participate in the race as a consequence of wounds he received from his abusive father. It is the silence that is torturing him as he continues to stay quiet about his abuse when he should tell the truth to someone.
(Hosseini 77). Amir obviously shook by seeing his best friend raped, did not know how to react in the situation.
