6. Read Harry Potter

Go and pick up Harry Potter or put on one of the movies. Turn to it and realize that this is the world we’re living in and that we can rise above it all. “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

We are now the Harry Potters of this story. Time and time again we’ve said that Trump is Voldemort and now that’s more true than ever. He is the villain of this tale and we have to defeat him. And we didn’t. But we’ll rise above it all and come out victorious.

So turn to the series that made some of us the most educated generation. There’s a reason that map was all blue in regards to millennials. There is a reason we didn’t want him to represent our country.

But we now have to find ourselves again and come out stronger against this. And that means turning to what makes us happy. And for many, that is Harry Potter. Read J.K. Rowling’s words and feel as inspired as you always have. Remember that this fight isn’t over and we’ll prevail in the end. We just have to remember to turn on the light.
