Dearest JK Rowling,
20 years ago, to the day, you published the first book of seven that has followed me throughout my entire life. These book have been the blueprints that have created the foundation for the way in which I live my life each day.
So many people have been changed because of something that started on napkins. You are not only an amazing writer, but an inspiration. I have personally been in awe of you for as long as I can remember. You have created something that I will share with my future kids. They will not only know the life of the Golden Trio, but they will know your story and how you rose from the ashes and created something so beautiful that it shook the world. They will know your anguish and your triumph just as I have.
It seems as if anything is possible in my life and it’s because of you that I’ve adopted that mindset.
Your stories have created such a deep love in my heart, that I doubt I will ever forget the first moment I truly knew what it was to relate to a young, scrawny boy, living in the cupboard under the stairs. I have overcome all of the adversity and struggles in my life thanks to you, a boy with a scar, and his friends who made everything possible.
Harry Potter is my past, present, and future.
A girl who still waits for her letter
