The end of an era
Today was a very sad day for us Potterheads. Ten years after the first movie came out we said goodbye to the Harry Potter era with the release of the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2).
These ten years were very special to most of us. We grew up with our friends Harry, Ron and Hermione. Now they're all grown up and so are we. On this very day my childhood ended, and I know yours did too.
We were, and will always be the Harry Potter generation. The stories will never be forgotten, not even by the next generations, but the experience will be gone. We were there though, we were there.
We experienced the immense lines in front of bookstores all over the world at midnight to get the next Harry Potter book, we were the ones who went to see unknown movies, just because it would play the new Harry Potter, we were the ones who had to find out who R.A.B was, if Harry was gonna die and where Snape's loyalty lay.
But it hasn't come to an end. The Harry Potter stories will affect what we do. The stories are fictional, but we learned so much from it. We will read these stories to our children and our grandchildren.
Even though there's nothing left for us to look forward to, we still have each other, we can still share experiences and of course Pottermore is coming up. Don't feel depressed, just remember what J.K. Rowling said at the London premiere: "Whether you come back by film or by page, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."
