Harry Potter Teaches Lessons In Friendship, Courage

Regarding the recent incident at the library and their Harry Potter night:

I, as a parent, was curious just what these books were about, especially after hearing such differing reviews, and so I chose to read them. Granted, their setting is based on witches and warlocks attending a special school, but I found it taught lessons in friendship and courage. It also never portrays one group as good and the other as bad -- there are good and bad in both. I enjoy them every bit as much as my children do. Frankly, I think the protesters' behavior reminds me more of Dudley (Harry's self-righteous cousin) than of Harry. How sad.
