Transcript of The Kite Runner: Forgiveness

The Kite Runner Forgiveness Discussion: Does forgiveness show weakness of strength? "...forgiveness by itself is still psychologically preferable to holding a grudge."
-A Guide To Psychology People forgive and seek forgiveness to heal wounds. Studies have shown that people who forgive are happier than those who hold grudges. Amir spends most of his life trying to gain forgiveness from those he has upset in hopes that he can leave his past behind. "And maybe, just maybe, I would finally be pardoned for killing my mother." (56) "'But today is your lucky day, Hazara,' Assef said. He had his back to me, but I would have bet he was grinning. 'I'm in a mood to forgive." (71) "'Bakhshida. Forgiven. It's done.' His voice dropped a little. 'Of course, nothing is free in this world, and my pardon comes with a small price.'" (72) "Except Baba stunned me by saying, 'I forgive you.'" (105) "Forgive? But theft was the one unforgivable sin, the common denominator of all sins...And if Baba could forgive that, then why couldn't he forgive me for not being the son he'd always wanted?" (106) Deep inside, Amir knows he didn't kill his
