Becoming Ernie Macmillan: Foot Eater #MNBHP

erniemacmillan

I just want to say, Harry, that I’m sorry I ever suspected you. I know you’d never attack Hermione Granger, and I apologize for all the stuff I said. We’re all in the same boat now, and, well—” He held out a pudgy hand, and Harry shook it. What do you do when you realize you’ve stuck your foot in your mouth? How do you treat others who have, like Ernie, stuck their foot in their mouths? Read More »

Harry is labeled a Dark wizard because of an “inherited” skill. Ernie Macmillan is essentially saying the skill makes the person and not the other way around. Hopefully most of us know not to take Ernie seriously in forming our opinion of Harry’s character, but how many of us take Ernie-like judgment statements as fact rather than prejudice (pre judgment)? How many things do we believe about others just because someone says they are so without getting to know the person ourselves?… Read More »

Becoming Lord Voldemort: Master of Quirrell #MNBHP

VoldemortQuirell

This post is titled Becoming Lord Voldemort, but it’s really not hard to become him. Most of us battle with self-centeredness. The real challenge is admitting to that Voldemort tendency within ourselves and turning away from it. When we feel the me-first urge, we need to remember Harry—the boy who has a “saving people” thing—and ask ourselves: Is placing myself above everyone else worth becoming more like Lord Voldemort? Or would I rather have a “saving people” thing? Share your answer with us using #MNBHP. Read More »
