Hermione also showed us that compassion for those less fortunate is an important virtue. She only encountered house elves after joining the wizarding world but just a glimpse of the abuse they endured urged her, a fourteen-year-old, to start an elf rights campaign and help creatures that NOBODY advocated for. Hermione was the perfect blend of mind and heart and her commitment to her social duty made her intelligence just that much more admirable.
I would like to point out one more thing about Hermione Granger that truly blows my mind:
Concentrate for a second on just how intelligent Hermione is. She was called the brightest witch of her age… and yet, she was put into Gryffindor house because she is even more brave and loyal than she is intelligent! I cannot even conceive of how brave this girl is. She stayed true to herself, stuck by her friends when their lives were in danger, spoke out for the rights of others and faced terrorists! Hermione Granger is truly phenomenal.
I have the urge to frantically type 10 pages more about why I think Hermione is amazing but I’ll have to save it for another post. Please leave your comments below on your thoughts about Hermione. Thanks!
