    allie J-
    Jake: this is really well done. I like the points that youmake and the connections of society that you made. They really help with relizing what goes on in our real world and that bad influences like the Taliban actually exist. It's just hard to sometimes wrap your head around that.

    I really like your wikispace. It's simple to read, and makes a lot of sense. I really like how you said that redemption can change a person or a friendship forever. It can make a friendship and any other relationship stronger. I thought the "talk to me!" picture was funny, too.:)

    " I stood up and picked up an overripe pomegranate that had fallen to the ground. 'What would you do if I hit you with this?' I said tossing the fruit up and down. Hassan's smile wilted. He looked older then I remembered...' What would you do?' I repeated. The color fell from his face. Next to him, the stapled oages if tge story I'd promised to read him fluttered in the breeze. I hurled the pomegranate at him. It struck him in the chest, exploded in a spray of red pulp. Hassan's cry was pregnant with suprise and pain" (Hosseini 61)
    This quote shows us that Amir wanted to redeem himself by having Hassan hit him back but nothing. Amir threw the pomegranate and Hassan just stood there.

    Another aspect of this book is salvation and redemption. Throughout the book Amir keeps getting flashbacks about Hassan and what happened in that ally. His guilt is starting to take a toll on him. RIght as he starts getting things figured out, he gets a call from Rahim Khan. At the end of the call he says something to Amir that makes everything come back to him.
    "Come. There is a way to be good again, Rahim Khan had said on the phone just before hanging up. Said it in passing, almost as an afterthought. A way to be good again" ( Hosseini 192).

    The type of friendship in The Kite Runner is a hidden one. Amir doesn't want to admit he is friends with a Hazzara boy, he would rather have the respect of a mean kid then be shunned for being friends with a Hazzara. Amir sits there and watches Hassan get raped, he takes him up to the pomegranate tree and throws pomegranetes at him, this is the start of the end of their friendship

    This quote symbolizes how Amir strived to do everything to forget, all he needed to do to find out what he needed was to fly to Pakistan and see what Rahim Khan wanted him to do. That's exactly what he did.

    Friends is a word that no one can really explain. To me its the people who will be there for me when I need them, and help me through my problems.
    "When we first talked to each other I knew we would always be friends. Our friendship has kept on growing And I'll be here for you to the end. You listen when I have a problem And help dry the tears from my face. You take away my sorrow And put happiness in its place. We can't forget the fun we've had Laughing 'til our faces turn blue. Talking of things only we find funny People think we're insane-If they only knew! I guess this is my way of saying thanks For catching me when I fall. Thanks once again for being such a good friend And being here with me through it all."

    My friends and I have fun together, they make me laugh when I cry, and they make me cry when they tell funny stories and they make me laugh to hard. They make coming to school fun for me and make it easy to live life to the fullest. When I have a problem, they fix it with a joke or by saying who do I have to beat up now. My friends are a major part of my life, without them life would be absolutely miserable.

    Redemption and salvation is something that is needed to show you are truly sorry for something you have done. It is important that I redeem myself when I don't do what my parents ask me, or when I know I disobeyed them, It is the only way to have a trust worthy friendship.

    "The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together."
