Thinking about all that Harry has meant to me got me thinking about how his message has extended beyond Jo’s books.  If you aren’t familiar with the Harry Potter Alliance, you outta be.  It is an NGO sparked by concepts found in literature and other fandom-fueled genres, to fight for social justice.

To, as John and Hank Green would say, “decrease world suck.”

Because, as the Wizard Wrock band Harry and the Potters would say, “the weapon we have is love.”

Need an example?

Watch this.

Then watch this.

And remember that Dumbledore told us, “the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy.”

No one wants to disappoint Dumbledore.
