For over a decade, the Harry Potter books and movies have been one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons of our generation. Yes, ours, for we are the kids who grew up with Harry. We are the ones who lived through the time when each new book was a exciting mystery waiting to be unraveled. We waited in lines at midnight, dressed in our Hogwarts finest, surrounded by other excited fans, waiting for the moment we could finally open the pages of that new book, or watch a new film play out on screen. For us, Harry Potter will always be special because we will look back on the phenomenon and say, "I was there." We are the first Harry Potter fans, but we certainly won't be the last.
