NOT ALL SUPER-HEROES WEAR CAPES, When someone mentions heroes, who do you think of?

You know, when someone mentions heroes to me, it’s always easy to conjure up an image of Superman or Captain America, punching out bad guys and saving the world. But I think my favorite example of heroism comes from Harry Potter. In The Sorcerer’s Stone, Neville tries to stop Harry, Ron, and Hermione from sneaking out at night. It’s the first time Neville has shown anything resembling bravery and when Dumbledore awards him those final points for Gryffindor to win the House Cup, I just remember tearing up and thinking, YES. Courage is not necessarily about physical strength or fighting prowess. It can be as simple as standing up for what you believe in. And at the same time, it can be as difficult as standing up for what you believe in. It is so hard to choose between what is right and what is easy. And there is so much value in taking the harder road. As Dumbledore says, it takes just as much bravery to stand up to our friends as it does to stand up to our enemies. And that’s the sort of courage I can identify with. I’ll never be rushing off to battle aliens or overthrow an empire. But I’d like to think that I could be as strong as Neville, if I felt like I needed to stand up for something I believed in. Neville Longbottom taught me a lot about what it means to be brave.
