The world we know today consists of 57% Potterheads, and some of the more famous Potterheads include Barack Obama, Jennifer Lawrence, and Stephen King. Many lives have been touched by Rowling's world and it has taught us integral lessons that give us courage and bravery. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
It has taught us the value of friendship: an unlikely trio- Harry, Ron, and Hermione, are the modern epitome of friendship and their friendship is the backbone of the series. It has instilled hope in us, teaching us that it is in our hands to be optimistic and hopeful even in dire situations. “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” It has made us believe that love is the real magic, love is irreplaceable, and love is something worth fighting for because love was the real reason that Harry was able to defeat Voldemort.
It has inspired us with the fact that age is just a number. Dumbledore was 150 years old, yet he was the most powerful wizard in history, and Harry was only 17 years old during the Battle of Hogwarts. They proved that their destiny was not controlled by just a number. It has motivated us to make our own choices. “It is our choices that tell us who we really are, far more than our abilities.”
It has encouraged us to have fun and be adventurous like Fred and George.“Mischief managed!!!” It has allowed us to overcome our fears. “Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.” It has prevented us from becoming a bully like Malfoy,and it has taught us to enunciate properly. "It's Leviosa, not Leviosar."
"The stories we love best do live in us forever, so whether you come back by page or big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."Tweet
