Storyboard Text

  • There were many places in the book that shocked me. One specific event that shocked me the most was on page 52. This is when Moshen returned. He told them that Ahmadi was assassinated. He went on to describe the "hell" he suffered before his death. He said that he was whipped burned with and after all that he was cut into pieces.
  • One important symbol that is mentioned and shown several times is the veil that the girls are made to wear. This symbol is significant because it is a physical thing that is forced onto Marjane attempting to conform her to societies expectations. The veil is originally brought up on the very 1st page of the book.
  • I think that whenever someone expresses who they are and shares he hard truths about their life they deserve a lot of respect. I think she did an amazing job portraying not only hers but the general public struggles with the new oppressing government.
  • I have sadly noticed many barriers that exist to prohibit the Iran government from being a democracy. One that I want to touch on specifically is taking away freedoms from the people. A democracy only works when the government works with the people instead of ruling them with an iron fist disregarding their opinions and silencing their voices. 
  • Until the government stops oppressing people and stripping away their individuality and self-expression then it will never be a democracy
  • This Comic has helped my understanding of this event significantly. One because I hadn't heard much about the history of Iran, two because personally whenever I hear a hear something as a story instead of just straight facts I am able to take it in and digest the information a lot better and lastly hearing it as a personal experience makes it ten times more real and you sympathize with the person in the story. When it is just words on a page it is less impactful.
