The stories told help bring context to Beah's life and personality. One story involves Beah's naming ceremony. As he drifts off to sleep, Beah recalls his naming ceremony. Although too young at the time to actually remember the event, Beah has a vivid account of the ceremony from his grandmother. He remembers his grandmother’s smile at the end of her telling him this story, then falls asleep. This story brings comfort to Beah and helps account for Beah's kind personality.
