I have been a Harry Potter fan since the 2nd grade. However, as I have grown, the characters have become more complex as my cognitive complexity has become more sophisticated. As a child, Snape was simply pure evil to me. However, as the series progressed, and I got older, I came to see that the distinction between good and evil had a lot of grey area, and I came to respect the good in Snape, despite shades of evil in his life. My personal constructs have become more nuanced.
Bravery comes in many forms. It is not always the one you notice. More often than not, it is the one you don't notice. Look around. There are brave people right beside you every day, going unnoticed, unappreciated, and unloved. Make a change! Be brave and LOVE! Take over the world by loving one person everyday in your own unique way.
