This has hurt Najmah,but Her persevering spirit stays strong until the bombing. “my mother cries for most of the two days after...”(staples 30). This shows their pain and suffering, but still in the situation Najmah stayed perseverant . Even when her father was taken away she stayed calm and kept her mother calm too.(STEWE-2)This shows her perseverance like before but this is also right before the bombing. this is all changes when she loses her only relative, her mother, that she has to take care of her. “”Mother and I will stay.””(staples 33).

Her trust will improve later as the situation of their survival gets harder. this is especially because of the uncle lurking around. The impaired trust was because of her PTSD as a symptom of it is trust issues.(STEWE-2)this is a significant piece of evidence because it is term of respect.”Bibi Nusrat”(staples 204). This term of respect is definitely earned after knowing a person and with this comes trust. Trust is earned and with that respect
