“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” -J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
I chose this quote because Harry Potter is one of my favourite book series and I think it’s important for young people to hear; that they shouldn’t give in to peer pressure and that it can work out for the better.
This video is interesting and significant to me because it’s the trailer to one of my favourite Broadway shows. The show has such an important theme and message that are relevant to today despite being the story of Orpheus and Eurydice from Greek mythology in a Great-Depression era, post-apocalyptic setting. One of the messages from the show is that if you persevere through hard times and trust in yourself and your beliefs, you can create change for the better and change the rules of the world.
This picture of Kinosaki, Japan is meaningful to me because it reminds me of the time I went there. Travelling to Japan was a highlight to my life. I absolutely loved it, it created such great memories for me and Kinosaki was my favourite place to visit. When I see pictures of Japan, it reminds me of how amazing it is and how much I want to go back.
Goodreads is a meaningful website to me because it allows me to see what others think about the books I read and it helps me keep track of the books I’ve read. I use this website constantly and I think it’s a unique program for book readers to use.
