Kindergarden to 8th grade. Midnight parties at Barnes And Noble. Lightening bolts painted on my forhead. Crying, laughing, and reoccuringly saying “Expelliarmus" were all caused by one thing. Harry Potter.
I never thought the day would come when I wouldn’t be looking forward to the next Harry Potter book or movie, but that day has already occured. Although Harry Potter is already a classic and will never be forgotten, the idea of no more of Harry’s adventures makes me want to run off and talk to Hagrid about my problems. Harry Potter may be fictional but important morals are seen throughout. From friendship to love to truth the adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione will always be there, in the back of my mind. Along with my Gryffindor robes, always waiting for the doors of Hogwarts to open once again.
I still remember my mother taking a photograph of a 6-year old me sitting in my room in my Mulan dress with my round Harry Potter glasses with a marker pointed at the camera. One picture that will truely define my childhood. Harry Potter.
I live in America, the land of “freedom”. By defintion, freedom is “the power to determine action without restraint”. America is known to be the Nation Of Freedom, but to me, I don’t see a lot of choice in American politics. From same-sex marriage to abortion, people don’t always have a choice. Yes, America is a beautiful country that I am very proud of, but it would be even better if everyone, poor, middle-class, wealthy, would have an equal say in their government. People do, to a point, have a say but unless they are a wealthy or famous, the little people are rarely noticed or are just a number in the goverments book.
Norway, Finland, Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand have two things in common. They are the five happiest countries in the World and all have Nationwide HealthCare. Isn’t that an obvious answer for helping America be happier? But nevermind, America wants to be wealthy and powerful. Not healthy.
Many of the things wrong with Americas government are, the people. From kindergarden to the buisness office, people will judge and cause unneeded drama. From ostracizing people because of their religous beliefs, or for the way a certain individual dresses. There will sadly always be judgements. We all are truly unique in our own ways, and we can all get along and make this nation even greater, if certain peoples would take a deep breath, be patient, and listen. From FoxNews Channel to MSNBC, different opinions, but both want the same goals for America. Freedom.
When I first heard about Tumblr, I automatically thought “Great. Another social network”, until I spent three hours non-stop freaking out about how many people liked the same type of music/fashion/food/everything as me. You could say I am one of those people who loves anything unique or “indie”. So Tumblr is FOR SURE the place to find individuals…which to me, are the best.
