Nikki Webster individuality

Now everybody’s always try’n fit in somewhere
We change the way we act and the clothes that we wear
And magazines are telling us what to look like
But no one’s ever saying we should look inside
we think that its cool to do what others do
but what is really cool is being true to you

It’s about individuality
And being who you want to be
Not someone the crowd wants to see you be
Individuality
Sometimes it’s better just to stand your own
And be an individual

Now everybody’s always bragging ‘bout who did what
They’re doing crazy things thinking that’s grown up
But that’s not the person that I want to be
I’m gonna live my life the way that I believe
we think that its cool to do what others do
but what is really cool is being true to you

"Why the Harry Potter books are the perfect way to explain Labor Day to kids" | by Alyssa Rosenberg for the Washington Post. (via thehpalliance)

J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” novels have a great many concerns that express the series’ larger themes of fascism, democracy and diversity. Among them is the struggle for the rights of house-elves, who play an enormous role in the functioning of the wizarding world even as they reap almost none of the rewards of the magical economy.

The house-elves emerge as characters in the “Harry Potter” novels much in the same way that children themselves might become aware of the workings of the economy as a whole. When Rowling’s characters initially enroll in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, they think certain things there come to pass by magic. Food appears, beautifully prepared, on dinner tables. Beds are made, fires are lit.

But Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione come to learn that most of these tasks are performed by house-elves, who work not just at Hogwarts but in the homes of many wizarding families. In almost all cases, they are bound to their employers by magic, which is convenient for wizards in two ways: They can force these virtual slaves to do even the most dangerous and disagreeable tasks, and they can do it without paying the house-elves.

Ultimately Harry, Hermione and Ron decide that their concern for non-magical persons and certain classes of magical beings means that they must become advocates for house-elves’ rights as well.

But that is not the end of their education. They also learn that if you want to help people, you have to listen to what they want and need and respect their wishes. When the main characters in Rowling’s series inadvertently free a house-elf named Winky from her rigid wizard employer, they are initially surprised when she is devastated and becomes an alcoholic. The wizards saw her release as a simple matter of her rights, but Winky lost her home and what she perceived to be her family. Instead of just forcing her out of bad conditions, Harry, Hermione and Ron needed to convince Winky that a new kind of life would be better and then deliver on their promises.

And at the end of the “Harry Potter” novels, the three young characters get a powerful illustration of what solidarity really means.

Let the welcome back feast BEGIN!

621. Being a part of Britain until the Revolution, American witches and wizards were educated at Hogwarts. Most of the founding fathers, being upper class and able to afford a proper education, were at Hogwarts, with Jefferson, Franklin, and Adams being sorted into Ravenclaw. Controversially, Alexander Hamilton was placed into Slytherin along with Benedict Arnold. George Washington, naturally, was a Gryffindor while John Jay was a Hufflepuff and an early proponant of house-elf rights.
