Harry Potter Friendship Lessons

I just did this really cool quiz on Which Harry Potter character are you? And here's the result:

Pretty cool huh? I really liked the new movie. From day one, I'm and have been a big fan because I think it teaches us a lot about friends. Friends really stick out for each other and are there for each other through thick and thin. Sometimes I feel out of this world facing my own monsters and challenges. But, with friends, I feel differently because we may face it all together. It's less of a burden.

"True wealth can not be found in your bank account. It can only be found in those you call friend. Those with whom you share your deepest feelings. And those who accept you for who you really are."~~Mary Vandergrift

"A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities."~~William Arthur Ward

Recently J.K. Rowling revealed that the Harry Potter saga was inspired by Christianity. This is no surprise, really, if she'd said different I'd have had to call bull pucky. It's the great battle between good and evil, the forces gather on each side, alliances are formed, there are betrayals, innocent ones die. And then Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay. And for some great reason, I was not surprised. It fit just fine the way she'd written it in the book. He's an old, single man and the only real infatuation we read about is with a young man from his past. It fit. Now you're probably wondering why I am so fond of not only a book that some say promotes witchcraft, but also of a gay character. I have no good answers for you other than a) I don't think it promotes witchcraft and b) if God wanted me to worry so much about homosexuality, I think he might have listed it in the top ten. But back to Rowling...I think the reason that I was not surprised by either is because that's the beauty of well crafted backstory. It's there, but you don't see it; it's woven so faintly into the tapestry like a pale blue thread--you only pick up on it when held up to another blue cloth. Then you see it there and think "oh yes, of course that fits perfectly"

Have you seen the Lego HP spoof? You gotta check it out 'cuz it's soooooooo funny.
