Closer Than You Think

             In the book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," by J.K. Rowling, you see that the good wizards of the wizarding world all look out for Harry and each other and would risk their lives for one another. The Order comes up with such a well-devised plan to help Harry safely leave the Dursley's before he turns seventeen. With people like this at my side I would feel very safe and happy to know that they cared for my safety. Wouldn't it feel good having someone to always be by your side? All of them have a great friendship where they can be very serious and on top of the mission they are trying to accomplish or have lots of fun being silly and joking around.
             For example on page 82, " 'But don't be silly!' said Mrs. Weasley. 'The whole point of tonight was to get you here safely, and thank goodness it worked.' " Here it is saying that all of them were hurt injured or had a close encounter for him. For him to say he doesn't want them to risk themselves for him anymore they obviously won't agree after what they had been through. I really like the fact that all of them really want each person to be fine and get what they need done without trouble. Another thing that I got really sad about was when Mad-Eye died because he was such a great wizard that had never done anything to deserve it but he was prepared to go down rather than Harry. Although Harry may always hate them helping him out I think it is very important for them to guard him because he is such an important part in taking down their biggest threat, Lord Voldemort.
             All of the ideas brought up here can be related to real life relationships and issues that occur. They are like a brotherhood in the real world where people gather and form an allegiance where they will attack people to protect each other and to stay together. When it is at points in the book where they all have fun together it just feels like currently in school when there are groups of kids that stick together socially and can also physically. What do they make you think of in the real world?
