That is an intelligent question. I think the first point to consider is to create a good working definition of redemption. You suggest that "being good again," is part of the definition, but there might be more. So, ask yourself what other elements are part of a definition or redemption. I think there should be an element of paying back something or making up for something. I think this is a central aspect of the definition. For example, you can redeem your points for a prize. There is a dynamic of paying back. So, if you failed in the past, your redemption would be to succeed in the present or future. You would have made up for something, or you would have paid your debts. So, how does Amir do this? That might be the best place to start.
