Courage Lesson

TODAY WE ARE FOCUSING ON COURAGE THROUGH THE EYES OF CHARACTER HARRY POTTER. COURAGE IS REWARDED IN THE BOOK BUT OFTEN OVERLOOKED IN REAL LIFE. 

THIS MIRROR SHOWS YOU WHAT YOU WANT, NOT WHAT WILL BE. WHEN HARRY SEES HIS ENTIRE FAMILY BEHIND HIM HE BELIEVES IT WILL BRING THEM BACK AND HE REALIZES WHAT IT REALLY DOES AND HE LEAVES. IT IS COURAGEOUS BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE CAN BECOME OBSESSED WITH IMAGES IN A MAGIC MIRROR OR HE CAN MOVE ON. 

CW: GOING TO AN IEP MEETING TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE AND I HAVE GONE TO SEVERAL. THE TEACHERS AND BOARD MEMBERS LOOK AT ME LIKE I AM AN ANIMAL WHOSE PARENTS WON'T UNDERSTAND THAT I AM "BROKEN." THEY TALK ABOUT ME LIKE I CAN'T COMPREHEND WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. I STILL GO AND FIGHT, NOT FOR MYSELF ANYMORE, BUT SO OTHER CHILDREN DON'T FEEL WORTHLESS BY THEIR IGNORANT TESTS AND WORDS. 

Holy Moly Huan! Such a strong voice and so smart in every way. I look forward to seeing him today!
