Reports have been circulating about a teenage girl committing suicide because the fake spoilers of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!” I don’t know if that is true or not, certainly I have only been able to find hear say remarks and nothing concrete as yet … not even news reports.
That would certainly be a distressing affair and one that I’m sure JK would not want. One thing that does distress me is the hype surrounding the launch and the hunger for the book by many. This morning I was sitting watching TV as the news reported on the 1/2 mile long queue outside one bookstore in London. My thoughts? I wish people would read the Bible with so much fervour. Harry Potter may be a well written and imaginative story but it cannot bring life. When Jesus was on earth, at one point, many of his disciples left him. He turned to Peter and said “Do you also want to go away?”. Peter answered him, “Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life”.
