The symbolism Rowling captures throughout “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” is a masterpiece of imaginary creations encompassing the characters, the settings and a variety of props. Upon arrival to Hogwarts, it becomes evident that the “house” in which you are assigned is a very big deal. The manner in which you are assigned is a unique, mind boggling ceremonious affair. As Harry and his classmates were told to prepare, Professor McGonagall announced, “The Sorting Ceremony will take place in a few minutes in front of the rest of the school. I suggest you all smarten yourselves up as much as you can while you are waiting” (Rowling 114).
I could hear the glass fish tank fall to the ground and shatter glass everywhere. The clock ended up rolling right beside me and I could see that the quake lasted about 2 and a half minutes. I climbed out from underneath my desk to find everyone in the class had survived.

AL Qaeda and the Life of Osama Bin Laden On September 11, 2001, I was headed off to work in Seattle Washington. I remember walking through the hallways of the hospital before the clinic doors opened, and wondering where all my staff was. I called one of my specialists up and was going to chew them out for being late when he told me the news that the post was on lock down and personnel could not get onto post.
