There were some things in life that even magic couldn't heal and for Zakari Ollivander, being deaf was not something that he wanted to be "healed" of anyways. Never considering himself disabled, Zakari considered himself just to be slightly different growing up. He still enjoyed partaking in activities that other children his age were involved in, even if he had to find his own way to do them. It was a challenge sometimes, but Zakari was always up for a challenge. As the grandson of a famous wandmaker, Zakari's biggest challenge yet would come to the young boy when he receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Without knowing him, people were quick to pass their judgement, believing the boy would struggle and calling it a waste of time trying to teach magic to a boy who couldn't hear and hardly spoke. However, Zakari sets himself out to prove that just because he was hard of hearing, didn't mean he didn't have anything to say. It was everyone else around him that needed to learn how to listen.

People long to find a 'perfect' world, but when everyone is accepted for who they are, then, and only then, can we even begin to imagine a perfect world.
Wow. I am speechless. This is absolutely beautiful and sweet (: My mother is deaf and this is totally true. She learned to live with it and everything, but there is still judgement. I love this ((:

Some people in the world judge others on non -important things such as being deaf, but we are all humans and we are all equal. We all deserved to be treated equally and fairly.

Kitty, my library only contains your works, and sometimes I wonder why. But then I get a reminder like this how dedicated and compassionate you are not only concerning your books. Please don't ever change!
