Two reactions of the Holly See (on 12 and 13 September, respectively), one seeming supportive of Islam and the other, strongly condemning the Libya terrorist attack.
Write a 8-10 narrative paragraph starting with the following words:
And Harry Potter stepped into the labyrinth for yet another magic adventure.
The above exercise was given at the English olympiad as the final subject to be made (VI).
What was my reaction? Of joy? Sadly (or gladly), not. Because, at the doors of the educational system, it is not to be made Alohomora for Harry Potter.
Why? The arguments are of spiritual nature. In my opinion, the “Harry Potter” series ar not “anti-christian” stories and J.K.Rowling didn’t have “evil intentions” writing it.
But there are some themes which I do not agree (making abstraction of the “magical setting” of the books):
Ante scriptum: “Which is the value of intelligence in love?” For months I had been trying to give an answer to this dilemma. I rewrote this article three times but, every time, I couldn’t find the right words. It is very hard to intelligently speak about love, what to say about intelligently speaking about love while weighting the value of intelligence in the same time. After all, love is an unspeakable feeling, which you cannot describe in words. And then, what should I do? “An image values as 1000 words”, it is said.
