To undertake a mission is to set a goal and to try to reach this goal, while doing many things to reach it. Doing this can be very dangerous, and can be very risky to attempt. Even though people know what undertaking a mission is, people don't understand why they undertake missions, knowing the very dangerous risks. For instance, Farah Ahmedi fled the border of Pakistan and was forced to climb a mountain while being disabled to reach freedom from a war-torn city. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi chose to fight two cobras who were bigger than him, and an even deadlier snake that was small but had a deadly bite, just to protect his new family. Harry Potter was forced to endure many hardships of death and still needed to face the killer of his loved ones, who was known as the embodiment of evil. These three individuals had to endure many hardships to reach their goal.
Subsequently this novel also displays that responsibility has also been a stepping stone for Harry, he has to step up to many strenuous tasks and positions throughout the novel.

In an interview with The Paris Review in 2010, Ray Bradbury once stated that “science fiction is the fiction of ideas. Ideas excite me, and as soon as I get excited, the adrenaline gets going…”, showcasing Bradbury’s passion for science fiction, which is further exhibited through the fact that he has written nearly 600 short stories. Although Ray Bradbury is known for his popular novel, Farenheit 451, many tend to overlook these numerous short stories, one of which is a personal favorite of mine—“Dark They Were and Golden-Eyed”. First published under the title “The Naming of Names” in the science fiction magazine Thrilling Wonder Stories in 1949, the story’s title was later
The banning of books is a must most of the time, but banning a children’s book? Whenever they may not be what people make them out to be. The book I’m most astonished to see on a banned book list is the ever so popular Harry Potter series. By examining that this book is a fantasy, Harry is a hero, and that the message has nothing to do with why it was banned, it is clear that Harry Potter should NOT be banned. I have found sources that tell the reason this series is banned. Would you agree? Or would you keep this fantastic children’s fantasy book on the shelves?
William Shakespeare can be argued as being one of the best writers of all time. Part of Shakespeare’s magic includes his ability to still have such a massive influence on authors and the content they create even today. Many books, films, and other forms of media are based off popular themes taken from the works of Shakespeare. Although Shakespeare has remained relevant through many years, other authors have become common household names and written pieces of writing that have taken over the world. An author that has written amazing books read and enjoyed by millions is J.K. Rowling. J.K. Rowling is the author of the widely-loved book series Harry Potter. The seven Harry Potter novels have each been adapted to their
Loyalty what does it mean? According to Webster's online dictionary loyalty means to form a strong alliance and to have a strong feeling of support. What about friendship? Friendship means to have a strong and mutual bonding relationship. In the book The Hunger Games,Peeta and Katniss had both friendship and loyalty towards each other. Katniss and Peeta showed loyalty and friendship to each other by: Peeta never abandoned Katniss, Katniss nursed Peeta back to health, and Katniss doesn’t know it but she is in love with Peeta. Katniss and Peeta went from people who just used to barely acknowledged each other, to not being able to live without each other. Throughout the book they start to become friends and realize many things they didn’t really know they would learn.
Loyalty is like a chunk of gold at the bottom of a river- sometimes it’s fake, sometimes it takes awhile to find, but when it’s real it has great value. As shown in Of Mice and Men, loyalty is a huge part of having a strong, positive relationship with someone. Lennie and George effectively demonstrate this with their close bond to each other. Additionally, it is shown between Candy and his dog. However, with Curley and his wife there is no trust between them and therefore they have a weak connection. In order to have a functional relationship there must be the backbone of dedication and devotion.
Loyalty is very strong and very meaningful, like true love or brotherhood. Loyalty has to be earned, not just given away. In The Odyssey, the epic poem by Homer, Odysseus’ crew is steadfastly loyal to him and follow nearly his every direction, even though they are given many reasons not to be. Although Odysseus occasionally does something for the short-term benefit of his crew, he does not deserve their loyalty because he does not sincerely care about them, trust them, or listen to them.
Loyalty is key in a relationship. It is what creates trust between the two individuals. Without loyalty, doubt arises and causes problems within a relationship. In the Arthurian Romances, “Erec and Enide”, by Chretien de Troyes, Enide shows her unwavering loyalty for Erec many times throughout his quest. Her display of loyalty to Erec is what brought the two even closer than they were before.
You would be hard pressed to find anyone who does not live under a rock that has not at least heard of Harry Potter, if not read a book or seen a movie. The series has become a cultural phenomenon that has people of all ages as loyal fans worldwide. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was the first book in the series by J. K. Rowling that had to have some qualities to capture audiences. Sure, it is a book about magic and adventures, but there are plenty of books about magic in the fantasy genre that never will have the following that Harry Potter does, so what did Rowling do to make this a meaningful story? Rowling took mundane elements from everyday life and used them through allusion to create an unique and interesting world. It was through these simple objects such as the forest, broomsticks and mirrors that a deeper meaning could shine through.
Heroic figures have long been the root of inspiration and fascination for humankind. A myriad of hero myths share themes and patterns that have recurred throughout time in countless narratives. In J. K. Rowling’s books about the young wizard Harry Potter, we find the same themes, motifs and structures that these hero myths are composed of.

The idea of the movie is not only to inform the viewer of Harry Porter’s dilemma but also to convince the viewer that there is more to him than just an orphan with nothing left to live for.
