& A Thousand Splendid Suns
By Khaled Hosseini In Afghanistan a childhood doesn't last long. Before you know it, you are an adult. As an adult you are up-holding adult responsibilites, seeing things that no human, even an adult should see. In Afghanistan, for most people, this is the way of life. Mariam: Married to a much older man at the young age of 15 by arrangement. Amir: Accidentally witnesses his best friend Hassan, get brutally assaulted. This means that at a young age, you are forced to become the person you will be for the rest of your life. Hassan: Abused and discriminated against for simply being the minority group of a Hazara in a world of Pashtuns. This is what Kite Running in Kabul looks like. It is considered a true art, and sport, and is a large part of their culture. "I Became What I Am Today,
At The Age Of Twelve." At the same time where children are defining themselves, the Taliban is taking away any individuality they have.
