On Amir’s trip back to Afghanistan, he stays at the home of his driver, Farid.

Have you ever had a time in your life where you “paid it forward?” Explain that situation and the similarities/differences that you had with Amir and Hassan and their relationship together.

Tuesday 9-1: Journal #2
As you reflect on The Kite Runner and all of Amir’s experiences throughout the novel, we draw some conclusions about the text and how different experiences in our own lives affect us. How has Amir’s journey been shaped by his selfish tendencies? In what ways could the story have changed if Amir had been an upstanding son and friend to Baba and Hassan, respectively? What difference would it have made, if any, if Amir had been honest with himself and others? Is the ending happy? Why or why not? Reflect on the text and identify situations in your own personal lives where honesty would have made a difference and relate it to how you think you might be similar to or different than Amir in his journey. 1 whole page!

And when we try to climb out of the wild valley into which our sin has led us, the beast of our sin comes to roar at us, making us afraid to even attempt the climb out. At one and the same time we want to grow in virtue, but we don’t want to give up our vice. As I finish reflecting on this opening Canto, I’m left with a question: how many times have I turned away from a guide sent to me by Heaven? I’m reminded of all the times when all around me seemed dark and unpleasant and I resisted, sure that this difficult path, this terrible suffering, could not be the true path. I ask God for the grace to trust him more firmly, confident that in His wisdom, even the suffering is bound up in His Mercy.
