Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 16 Days

There are now only 16 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!

He was about to go home, about to return to the place where he had had a family. It was in Godric's Hollow that, but for Voldemort, he would have grown up and spent every school holiday. He could have invited friends to his house. . . . He might even have had brothers and sisters. . . . It would have been his mother who had made his seventeenth birthday cake. The life he had lost had hardly ever seemed so real to him as at this moment, when he knew he was about to see the place where it had been taken from him.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Godric's Hollow"

a strong quote from the book, very emotional and really states a strong message about how really hard this situation must be for harry and his friends

This is an amazing paragraph and it shows a lot about the series. Sure most of this paragraph is sad. Like how Harry might have grown up there and lived a safer life than he did now. But there are also things that might never have happened if Voldemort didnt do those things like for example,: Harry might not have ever become friends with Ron and Hermione, or never would have been close with Dumbledore. He would have lived the life as an average wizard. Great chapter :)

I still cry at this…I feel so bad for Harry, and I don’t think it’s until this moment that he realizes what he missed out on and what his life could have been.

I acxtually cried when I first read this.Voldemort destroyed Harry’s chances at having an almost normal life. Its good that he has Mrs. Weasly though.
