Harry Potter is not primarily about friendship, courage, or love. Many times it’s pure luck that Potter triumphs over Voldemort or his minions. Maybe the message was intended to be “if you’re brave and love your friends, then it’ll seem like you’ll lose until chance happens to save you,” but even if that was intended, it isn’t the message I see. The message is that it’s important for us to remember the past.
Things always happen to work out for Potter. I’m not complaining. I loved the books. But realistically (I know, I know, it’s not realistic anyways), it sure seemed like Voldemort should have won. That was largely due to the community as a whole being unprepared because they refused to talk about him, consider the evidence, or properly teach history.
‘Voldemort’ should have been in everyone’s vocabulary. The threat of Death Eaters should have been considered more easily even if one held the assumption that Voldemort was dead. Open-mindedness, equality, and the pursuit of truth seem to be the themes that I see in Harry Potter.
I don’t normally review free games on Game Boyz (because I’m unpaid, I choose to review games that would normally cost money), but I decided to make an exception for this one.
Allied Star Police was released yesterday! It was designed by fourth-grader Owain, who has leukemia. Make-a-Wish partnered with PopCap to make his dream real. The game is very short but a decent defense game. It’s free right now, so please give it a download! You can read more about this at www.PopCap.com/owainswish, and you can donate there as well.
I had to repost this video Braeden shared on Facebook. So cute!
