    This is SO true. I was just thinking last weekend that I need to write a letter to Ms. Rowling to thank her for such a well put together and well constructed world that prepares my son for the world he’s growing into. A real gift for children’s developing minds.

    What Harry Potter taught millennials, is that you’re an entitled chosen one that doesn’t have to be that good at the thing youre supposed to be great at, but you will still triumph and be revered by your peers regardless of your piss poor effort.

    this is so true. the Harry Potter generation has some of the most kindest and empathetic people I have ever come across. it is the sheer goodness and innocence of the books that they grew with that shapes their outlook towards the world. I wish more people had something like that while growing up to guide their way.

    If I hear one person use Harry Potter to talk about politics I’m voting for Trump… Obama sucked, centrism doesn’t work, young people literally sat out hence Trump. She’s wrong about literally everything they talk about… Why did she feel qualified to write a book?
