We are a generation that has endured a lot: 9/11, Katrina, violence at home, wars and genocide abroad, the existential threat of global warming, and the reality of a broken economy. But contrary to popular belief, it is an economy broken not by people like Julian’s hard working parents who pay taxes but by a system of Malfoy-like bankers and Fudge-like leaders that chose fear and greed over love. Rather than reacting to dark and difficult times by doubling down on the blindness of fear, we in the HPA invite us reach out to each other with the openness of love. This open attitude is not necessarily a mark of naive idealism nor does it have to be the idle fantasy of youth. We who love fantasy understand that fantasy itself need not be an escape from our world, but an invitation to go deeper into it. We who grow up meeting in the Room of Requirement with Dumbledore’s Army are prepared to stand up for the rights our world’s werewolves and house elves and Muggleborn Americans. It is not our intention to save the world. It is our intention to fall in love with it. It is our intention to greet each other in the spirit of love.
Andrew Slack, HPA Executive Director
