The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini a wonderful and beautiful epic of a novel. Set in Afghanistan and the United States between the 1970s to the present day, it is a heartbreaking tale of a young boy, Amir, and his ...view middle of the document...
That was a long time ago,but it’s wrong what they say about the past, I’ve learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out. Looking back now, I realize I have been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years.
In the novel The Kite Runner, Amir felt deeply guilt and compunctious for his disloyalty and cowardly actions when he failed to stand up for Hassan in the face of evil.Giving an end to his spiritual suffering is Amir's strongest incentive to do good,finally Amir went back to the Tuliban taken over Afghanistan to bring back Hassan's only son---Sohrab,who is under sexual abuse.
Amir does this at the risk of his own life,for there is a way to be good again,as Rahim Khan puts is as his last words.
Motivated by strong desire to make up for the wrong,kind of this action is the basic line of human nature,maybe it is not so lofty,still makes us feel the strength of pursuing for peace deep down.After all, I believe, true redemption is when guilt leads to good.
The second kind of redemption-------fighting against all kinds odds facing you and keeping on dreaming to pursue hope,freedom and peace of mind.Andy in Shawshank Redemption maybe a typical model. Though innocent, Andy spends tens of years in Shawshank; Though knowing it is not fair and legal,Andy had to go against his will and give in to Corrections Office.Moreover, he has to keep his character under in the prison ,which is the most difficult.
These walls are kind of funny like that. First you hate them, then you get used to them. Enough time passed, get so you depend on them. That's institutionalized.
However,Andy never really gives up dreaming his hope for freedom.He keeps on fighting.
Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free. A strong man can save himself, a great man can save another;
Hope can set you free Remember that hope is a good thing, Red, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
when Red reminded him of his crazy,Andy would answer.
Seeing Andy finally succeeds in escaping,and is really mad with joy in rainstorm,my own words fail me to describe my mixed feelings.Man is not made for defeat; a man can be destroyed but not defeated.For people of Andy's kind,they will eventually take control of their fate with courage and determination,rewarding themselves with spiritual redemption.
The third kind of redemption----doing anything to bring others to be good out of pity ,even at the cost of one's life.No one can fitted this better than Jesus.
The Bible teaches us that God is a consistent with those who is always true to His Word. Death came upon all men because of Sin and every time we attend a funeral service we pay witness to this fact....
