Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 37 Days

DH Film

There are now only 37 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

On this spot, on the night of 31 October 1981,
Lily and James Potter lost their lives.
Their son, Harry, remains the only wizard
ever to have survived the Killing Curse.
This house, invisible to Muggles, has been left
in its ruined state as a monument to the Potters
and as a reminder of the violence
that tore apart their family.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Bathilda's Secret"

What a great quote! Really interesting and also sad. This event changed history. The saddest part is “tore apart their family” =(

A reminder that we don’t always have as much control over our own fate as we’d like to think.

I cried buckets through this scene. How moving it must have been for Harry.

Not to be a downer, and I hope it’s not true, but I read somewhere that their not going to have the sign/memorial in the movie. That seems to be too important of a thing to leave out to me.

I just noticed that if you didn’t know the story, from just what is written on the memorial, you would have no idea that Lord Voldemort was involved in this tragedy. Its a cool way to honor the victims without promoting the fame of the killer.

Another of my favorite moments in the book. Imagine growing up “famous” with no realization of how big it actually is to the world around you. And then finding a memorial, and seeing all the message and gifts and things from people you don’t even know. I think the weight of what was happening started sinking in for Harry in this chapter.

Good comment Storeyann – you summed up my feelings about that chapter exactly.
