In September we are going to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So to prepare for our vacation we are watching all the Harry Potter movies over again. We have made it through “The Prisoner of Azkaban” the one featuring Gary Oldman as Sirius Black. These movies originated from JK Rowling are a significant part of the childhoods and second childhoods of many. Indeed this series of movies are a modern instant classic.
Humans for the most part are social creatures. Perpetual isolation goes against our nature. Granted some people like to be alone but even then the need for interaction is good for them. We cannot think of ourselves as an island out there in a vast ocean. Every human being is connected in one way or another through something. No matter who you are there are times when you need a warm embrace that reminds you that you are indeed special. We all need that company that helps us get through life when tough times come. People are informed by the conversations they have with others who share their experiences. Learning from others is important to help us not make the same mistakes they have made. Everyone needs somebody, somebody to hold. Being social is being very human indeed.
