We witness in the book that Mi-Ran’s father because of his past is a very quiet man who keeps to himself. We know that the reason for this is to protect his children even though they don’t understand it that way. In our own lives that typically seems to happen a lot where we question our parents decisions or ways of doing things and we think as children that we are right and sometimes maybe less than more are right. But as I learned from experience, our parents are usually right no matter how book smart we might be. They are wiser in the years of experience they accumulated and more then not are right no matter what we children might think.
