Introduction: Who are Amir and Hassan?

Amir and Hassan both lived in Kabul, Afghanistan in the beginning of the book. Amir was wealthy and lived with Baba, his father in their mansion . Hassan is really close to Amir and is seen as a friend/brother(though not admitted by Amir), however he is his servant, along with Ali(Hassans Dad). They lived in the mudshacks in the back of the mansion. The story starts around an environment like this, until Afghanistan was invaded by the Soviets and had. become a war-zone.

Quote #2:
"Hassan's reply was a single word delivered in a thin, raspy voice: "Yes"." - Amir's point of view (Pg.111)

This quote shows free will affecting Amir because he had the chance to confess to Baba saying that Hassan had nothing to do with stealing his watch and some money, it was all a set up. He let Hassan take the blame, which doesn't show him using his free will at the best. Ali and Hassan both left the house, when all Amir wanted was to stop feeling guilty. Amir fells guilty because Hassan had stood up to all the people that picked on him the past. Since Amir didn't do the same for Hassan when he was raped, he feels guilty. Hassan's continued presence reminds Amir of his cowardice and makes him feel ashamed of himself. He had the free will to tell the truth, that he lied, but unfortunately he made a bad choice.

"I had one last chance to make a decision. One final opportunity to decide who I was going to be. I could step into that alley, stand up for Hassan--the way he’d stood up for me all those times in the past--and accept whatever would happen to
me. Or I could run. In the end, I ran." - Amir

“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.” - Amir (Pg.1)
Real Life Story : Demi Lovato
This is herer whole life documentary , everything she went through, yet in the end, she had to will to stay strong.
Explanation of how Demi Lovato's story affects us
This quote shows how free will affects Amir because he wants to marry Amir and had the free will to tell Soraya that he didn't want to marry her, but Amir loves her so he couldn't say that. Even though after he found out about her troubled past,he did't care, he truely loved Soraya. Soraya had secrets in her past of which she was ashamed of, just like Amir, so he understood what she went through.
This quote shows how free will affects Amir because he made the choice to run away. This is a great example of him being a coward. After all the times that Hassan had stood up for him, he still didn't become brave and jump in the scene and at least try to save Hassan. He had free will to become brave and try to save Hassan and be a good friend, but he ended up being a weak and coward friend This was probably one of the worst decisions Amir had ever made when he was a little boy, because it lead to him feeling guilty enough for him to lie to send Hassan and Ali away from the house. He even had stopped talking with Hassan. This leads to even greater sad things happening in the future.
This shows how fate affects Amir because when Assef was younger he had old Amir that he basically hadn't finished "dealing" with him, so it was suspectable that we would see Assef again in the future, and he would still try to hurt Amir. Assef was described as a "sociopath" by Amir, and just his personaity, and thhe way he acted, wouldn't lead us to thinking that he would change in the future. In otherwords, he was still the same Assef.

“There is a way to be good again” (Pg.226).
Amir's fate was ultimately to redeem himself through Hassan. He diddo this by taking care of Hassans son, Sohrab. He stood to Assef, something he as a child, could never do. For all the past guilts he committed towards Hassan, this was his fate, to not let the guilt stay inside, but to try to be good again, an earn redemption. He ultimitly fought for what he would have thought Hassan would want to see him do.
This shows how fate affects Amir because even the little mistakes that a person makes can truely change someone's fate. For example, Amir not trying to save Hassan lead him to being guility his whole life and maybe if he had saved him, Hassan would maybe have still been alive and living in America with Amir. he Kite race, made Baba proud, and appreciate Amir in an instant. Another example was when Amir and Baba were traveling to America. In the few days people were losing hope, like when Kamal's father committed suicide after his son died unexpectedly and this affected Amir's fate by motivating him to live.
This shows how fate affects Amir because when he was younger, he tried to put his past aside, and tried to run away from his mistakes and flaws. He had nobody to truely talk to about this, not even Baba since they didn't have such a strong relationship when Amir was a child. Amir in the future told Soraya about him and Hassan, and is able to deal with the truth. Amir's fate was to try and redeem himself by facing his past mistakes for real this time. He realized its a part of him now, and something he will have to deal with now.

Quote #5:
"There was brotherhood between people who had fed from the same breast, a kinship that even time could not break" - Amir
It was Amirs fate to always be close with Hassan and see him like a brother, because they were brothers(half-brothers). Amir never got to truely show his feels toward Hassan, so he got to earn redemption by adoptiing Hassan's son, Sohrab and treating him like his own son.
Demi Lovato went through so much problems with bullying. People called her names and all sorts of things, yet in the end she became strong and fought the battle. She is a true surviver and inspired both of us to never think your not worth it and that your not beautiful. We think that everybody deserves to enjoy life, and to not let other peoples mean comments or words affect us.
Redemption in
The Kite Runner
plays a huge role. Throughout the whole novel, you see problems between Hassan and Amir unfold. When Amir was a child, he felt as if he betrayed Hassan especially when Amir had blamed Hassan for stealing his watch and some money. Another example would be the fact that Amir didn't do anything when he say Hassan was being raped. As time went on, Amir kept feeling guilty for his past even though he couldn't go back in time to change things, but he could earn redemption. Rahim Khan had called Amir over to Afghanistan to help Sohrab, Hassans son. Rahim Khan also told Amir about the death of Hassan and his wife, and that he and Hassan were brothers. Since Sohrab wouldn't truely be safe in Afghanistan, to earn redemption, Amir tried to take Sohrab to Amir and adopt him, thankfully he is capable of doing this in the end. However, Amir went through a lot trying to get Sohrab and find him, but it was the price he payed to earn redemption for his feelings of guilt toward Hassan. Amir is now happy with himself because he knows Sohrab is safe since they live in America now . He has reedeemed himself with Hassan through his son, Sohrab.
