My Thoughts on Godric Gryffindor

Ever since I first read Harry Potter, Godric Gryffindor has remained one of my most favorite characters. JK Rowling did a wonderful job of describing him, and he is courageous and brave. I like the way that the is noble and brave at the same time, and that even though he is not fearless, because everyone has fear, he is brave and will battle for good and truth. This is not specifically stated in the book, but I have imagined it time and time again through the descriptions of him. There are not too many, just as there are not many of the other founders, but I think he is amazing. If I were to wish I were a certain way, with a certain personality, it would be as Godric Gryffindor. I could never be as brave or strong, but I admire him with all of my heart. Gryffindor House, Godric's Hollow, the Sword of Gryffindor, all are named after him, and it is said that Gryffindor House is for the brave at heart, the noble and strong. I agree with that, and I also have always been fascinated how JK Rowling picked the perfect name for him. His last name being Gryffindor, it is part of a Lion, who is the king of the wild to many of us. Although Godric would be too noble to ever allow himself to be thought of as any kind of royalty, he is a leader and a protector. Another thing about Godric which I absolutely love is his fight for the rights of Muggles. I know how hard discrimination can be, and when I read that he was one of the first fighters for Muggle rights I thought that I would really like to meet Godric Gryffindor. His legacy and his teachings continue to be important, and will continue on forever.
