I was at camp this past week. When I got home, my mother told me that J.K. Rowling has told people that two of the lead characters in the books were going to die. J.K. apparently is fixing it that way so no one can go and write more books or harry potter storys (to all of us on fanfiction we all say LOL!) but any way I am soooo sad about it. I don't want harry to die, but I have a feeling that in order for no one to write another book or story, (LOL!) harry will have to die. I am just going to have to accept this as much as it pains me to do so. I think that harry will die. So if he dies (which he probably will) I ask this of you:

Now, I ask only one thing of you: Remember Harry. Remember him for his courage, his determination, his willpower. Remember Harry James Potter. Remember him. May he rest in peace.

Here is J.K.'s interview:

LONDON (AP) - Author J.K. Rowling said two characters will die in the last installment of her boy wizard series, and she hinted Harry Potter might not survive either.

"I have never been tempted to kill him off before the final because I've always planned seven books, and I want to finish on seven books," Rowling said on Monday's "Richard and Judy" television show.

"I can completely understand, however, the mentality of an author who thinks, Well, I'm gonna kill them off because that means there can be no non-author written sequels. So it will end with me, and after I'm dead and gone they won't be able to bring back the character'."

Rowling declined to commit herself about Harry, saying she doesn't want to receive hate mail.

"The last book is not finished. But I'm well into it now. I wrote the final chapter in something like 1990, so I've known exactly how the series is going to end," she said.

Rowling said people are sometimes shocked to hear that she wrote the end of book seven before she had a publisher for the first book in the series.

"The final chapter is hidden away, although it's now changed very slightly. One character got a reprieve. But I have to say two die that I didn't intend to die," she said. "A price has to be paid. We are dealing with pure evil here. They don't target extras do they? They go for the main characters. Well, I do."

Rowling is the richest woman in Britain -- wealthier than even the queen -- with a fortune estimated by Forbes magazine last year at more than $1 billion.

Whatever she writes next, Rowling is sure of one thing: It won't be as successful as Harry Potter.

"I don't think I'm ever going to have anything like Harry again. You just get one like Harry."

These are e-mails that were sent to me that I love.
I hope you enjoy reading them.

Read the following story that was sent to me and may it change the way
that you may think about prayer and also the way you pray. You will be
blessed by this.

A missionary on furlough told this true story while visiting his home
church in Michigan. "While serving at a small field hospital in Africa,
every two weeks I traveled by bicycle through the jungle to a nearby
city for supplies. This was a journey of two days and required camping
overnight at the
halfway point.

On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to
collect money from a bank, purchase medicine, and supplies, and then
begin my two-day journey back to the field hospital. Upon arrival in the
city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously
injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to
him about the Lord. I then traveled two days, camping overnight, and
arrived home without incident. Two weeks later I repeated my journey.
Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had
treated. He told me that he had known I carried money and medicines. He
said, 'Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you
would camp overnight. We planned to kill you and take your money and
drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you
were surrounded by 26 armed guards. At this, I laughed and said that I
was certainly all alone in that jungle campsite. The young man pressed
the point, however, and said, 'No, sir, I was not the only person to see
the guards, my friends also saw them, and we all counted them. It was
because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone.'

At this point in the sermon, one of the men in the congregation jumped
to his feet and interrupted the missionary and asked if he could tell
him the exact day this happened. The missionary told the congregation
the date, and the man who interrupted told him this story: "On the night
of your incident in Africa, it was morning here and I was preparing to
go play golf. I was about to putt when I felt the urge to pray for you.
In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong, I called men in this
church to meet with me here in the sanctuary to pray for you. Would all
of those men who met with me on that day stand up?" The men who had met
together to pray that day stood up. The missionary wasn't concerned with
who they were, he was too busy counting how many men he saw. There were
26.

This story is an incredible example of how the Spirit of the Lord moves
in mysterious ways. If you ever hear such prodding, go along with it.
Nothing is ever hurt by prayer except the gates of hell. I encourage you
to forward this to as many people as you know.

If we all take it to heart, we can turn this world toward God once
again. As the above true story clearly illustrates, "with God all things
are possible".

More importantly, how God hears and answers the prayers of the faithful.
After you read this, please pass it on and give God thanks for the
beautiful gift of your faith, for the powerful gift of prayer, and for
the many miracles He works in your own daily life... and then pass it
on.

Who says God does not work in mysterious ways. I asked the Lord to bless
you as I prayed for you today. To guide you and protect you as you go
along your way. His love is always with you, His promises are true, and
when we give Him our cares you know He will see us through. So when the
road you're traveling on seems difficult at best, Just remember I'm here
praying, and God will do the rest.

> "God loves you Phyllis and I love you, and I'm praying for you." > One day Phyllis Cross said she was literally drawn to Edith's room like

THE U IN JESUS

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.

And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.

And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?

The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.

"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?

It all depends now on what U will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U.

A friend is someone we turn to
When our spirits need a lift
A friend is someone we treasure
For our friendship is a gift
A friend is someone who fills our lives
With beauty, joy, and grace
And makes the world we live in
A better and happier place.
There is a miracle called friendship, that dwells in the heart.
You do not know how it happens or when it gets it's start
But you know the special lift it always brings.
You realize that friendship is God's most precious gift!
Send this to all your friends, no matter how often you talk, or how close you are, and send it to the person who sent it to you.
Let old friends know you haven't forgotten them, and tell new friends you never will.
Remember, everyone needs a friend, someday you might feel like you have

A good quote: by: lilend on www.babynamesworld.com I consider this a big compliment!

But I actually love discussing with younger people. For one thing, they'll be the adults of tomorrow, for another, I find it extremely comforting since those kids have been great at alleviating my fears. These very young people definitely have their own minds, and have shown quite an ability and desire to challenge ideas, theirs and others, to grow into the best possible adults. Kids tend to be a lot smarter and more aware of the world around them than most adults give them credit for, and some of them have already gone through life changing experiences.

I can't wait for July 13, 2007 Then, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is coming out in Imax theatres!

Favorite Harry Potter quotes

"The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're planning to bring down the Ministry of Magic from within using a combination of Dark Magic and gum disease."
--Luna, Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince

"Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory." -Albus Dumbledore GOF

You two," she went on, gazing down at Fred and George, "are about to learn what happens to wrongdoers in my school."
"You know what?" said Fred. "I don't think we are."
He turned to his twin.
"George," said Fred, "I think we've outgrown a full-time education."
"Yeah, I've been feeling that way myself," said George lightly.
"Time to test our talents in the real world, d'you reckon?" asked Fred.
"Definitely," said George.
And before Umbridge could say a word, they raised their wants and said together, "Accio Brooms!"
Harry heard a loud crash somewhere in the distance. Looking to his left he ducked just in time -- Fred and George's broomsticks, one still trailing the heavy chain and iron peg with which Umbridge had fastened them to the wall, were hurtling along the corridor toward their owners. They turned left, streaked down the stairs, and stopped sharply in front of the twins, the chain clattering loudly on the flagged stone floor.
"We won't be seeing you," Fred told Professor Umbridge, swinging his leg over his broomstick.
"Yeah, don't bother to keep in touch," said George, mounting his own.
Fred looked around at the assembled students, and at the silent, watchful crowd.
"If anybody fancies buying a Portable Swamp, as demonstrated upstairs, come to number ninety-three Diagon Alley - Weasley's Wizard Wheezes," he said in a loud voice. "Our new premises!"
"Special discounts to Hogwarts students who swear they're going to use our products to get rid of this old bat," said George, pointing at Professor Umbridge.
"STOP THEM!" shrieked Umbridge, but it was too late. As the Inquisitorial Squad closed in, Fred and George kicked off from the floor, shooting fifteen feet into the air, the iron peg swinging dangerously below. Fred looked across the hall at the poltergeist bobbing on his level above the crowd.
"Give her hell from us, Peeves."
And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang to a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset -OOP

If you tell them," said Ron, shoving the necklace out of sight under his pillow, "I - I - I'll -"
"Stutter at me?" said Harry, grinning. "Come on, would I?"
"How could she think I'd like something like that, though?" Ron demanded of thin air, looking rather shocked.
"Well, think back," said Harry. "Have you ever let it slip that you'd like to go out in public with the words 'My Sweetheart' round your neck?" -HBP

You'd think people had better things to gossip about," said Ginny as she sat on the common room floor, leaning against Harry's legs and reading the Daily Prophet. "Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it's true you've got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest."
Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them.
"What did you tell her?"
"I told her it's a Hungarian Horntail," said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. "Much more macho."
"Thanks," said Harry, grinning. 'And what did you tell her Ron's got?"
"A Pygmy Puff, but I didn't say where -HBP

And that's Smith of Hufflepuff with the Quaffle," said a dreamy voice, echoing over the grounds. "He did the commentary last time, of course, and Ginny Weasley flew into him, I think probably on purpose, it looked like it. Smith was being quite rude about Gryffindor, I expect he regrets that now he's playing them - oh, look, he's lost the Quaffle. Ginny took it from him. I do like her, she's very nice..." Luna Lovegood -HBP

HARRY-"Er-well-ghosts are transparent-" he said.
SNAPE-"Oh, very good," interrupted Snape, his lip curling. "Yes, it is easy to see that nearly six years of magical education have not been wasted on you, Potter. Ghosts are transparent."

Later

RON --"When we come face-to-face with one down a dark alley, we're going to be having a look to see if it's solid, aren't we? We're not going to be asking, 'Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul? -HBP

Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape, andbegs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."
Snape froze. Harry stared, dumbstruck, at the message. But the map didn't stop there. More writing was appearing beneath the first.
"Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git."
It would have been funny if the situation hadn't been so serious. And there was more...
"Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor."
Harry closed his eyes in horror. When he'd opened them, the map had had its last word.
"Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball-POA

"So light a fire!" Harry choked.
"Yes...of course...but there's no wood!" Hermione cried, wringing her hands.
"HAVE YOU GONE MAD?" Ron bellowed. "ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT! -?COS OR PS/SS?

Favorite non Harry Potter quotes:

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you. Because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who do not believe in magic will never find it. -Roald Dahl

" Don't let your character get camouflaged with your environment. Find who you are and let it stay its true colors." -Rachel Joy Scott August 5,1981-April 20,1999

" I will not be labeled as average." -Rachel Joy Scott August 5,1981-April 20,1999

Sing like no one's listening, dance like no one's watching, love like you've never been hurt, and live like there's no tomorrow

A good friend helps you up when you fall. A best friend laughs at you and trips you again.

I'm the kind of girl who will burst out laughing in a room full of silence, over something that happened yesterday

A conversation that happened at camp:

Me: Anna, why are you wearing a duct tape anklet?

Anna: Because it is tacky and cool

Me: Oh, awesome!

LATER:

Me: Anna, have you read your care note from me yet?

Anna: No, not yet hold on let me read it.

Anna (reading) : Anna, You're a great friend, have a great summer. Love, Marissa

P.S. "Because duct tape anklets are tacky and cool!"
