Day 27 – What do you think the moral message is in Harry Potter?

I think the hardest part of this question is which moral message to choose, because there’s truly so many layers to Harry Potter. Each book could truly give it’s own moral message, but I am going to give you an overall moral message that I think reaches across all of the books and also means a lot to me.

“It is our choices, Harry, that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

Albus Dumbledore, “Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets”

This quote alone can apply to just about every characters in the series. Harry overcame so much that could have led him down a dark and lonely path, a path that Tom Riddle took. He kept making the choice to do the right thing, over and over again. He chose to be better that the Dursley family. He chose to grow instead of letting his pain and trauma consume him. This is something I personally work towards daily. It would be easy for me to give up and just say that I can’t do it, that I can’t move on from my past. And while I do have days where it seems like I haven’t, where I feel like I am being consumed by painful memories and the emotions they bring, I still choose to get up and continue to push forward, no matter how small that push might be.

  1. I think I have to agree with you on that quote!
    I do think that the message of Harry Potter is that you can choose who you want to be and there is no real lesser path than another. Except for that path that goes trough others. Choose who you want to be.. but be mindful of others and allow them to do the same.
