Nadia the Willful

Nadia the Willful

I read a book called Nadia the 'Willful'.
Nadia is stubborn and had a flashing temper.
Her father sheik Tarik was the leader of Bedouin.
They always livd in dessert form oasis to oasis.
Tarik had a favorite son named Hamed. Only he could calm Nadia down.
One day Hamed went to find grazing ground for sheep
but he never came back. Tarik was broken hearted of he loss of his favorite son. He forbid people to say Hamed's name for he would punish the people who say his name. But Nadia started talking about Hamed with other people. Her father found out about it and was about to punish those people but Nadia opened her father's heart by talking about the happy memories of Hamed.
I disagree on Tarik's attitude because just because Hamed died I don't think I is a right thing to forget about it. By trying to forget about Hamed, it is trying to forget all the happy memories about Hamed. And evern if Hamed died He wouldn't want people to forget about him, for once he was a very kind and gentle friend to lots of people. If a beloved person die it is bound to hurt, but as time flow you would get used to it.
There for, I strongly disagree about Tarik forgetting about Hamed.


Q: Why do you think Tarik forbid his people to say Hamed's name?

    Answer: It would be so hurtful for Tarik to be reminded of his beloved son, Hamed. Therefore, Tarik forbade his people saying even the name of his lost son.

    Very mature idea about the hurt of losing loved one and the healing power of time, Anna. I share the same view about the hurt.

    I wonder if you would try to remember your lost beloved ones out of respect to them or out of peace of your mind as Nadia explained in the story. As you stated, it would be so painful at first to even remember him or her you've lost. However, Nadia argued that talking about the memories of him brought her peace. I guess it would take long time to get there. That doesn't mean that we should afraid of the journey though.

    Anna, I think it is better to make your summary of the story one paragraph. What do you think about it? Another thing is that could you explain a little more about the impressive sentence (If a beloved person die ...... get used to it). It would be easier for me to understand what you really want to say by it in connection with your previous argument, which was 'it isn't right thing to forget about Hamed.'

    I will fix that next time.
    And mom your grammar is wrong.
    'That doesn't mean that we should afraid of the journey though.'
    Instead you have to right 'That doesn't mean that we should be afraid of the journey though.'
