Re: Does Harry love the Dursleys?

Harry is a neglected child who was rasied by the Dursleys.
"Neglected Child" means a child less than 18 years of age whose physical, mental or emotional condition has been impaired or is in danger of becoming impaired as a result of the failure of the child's legal guardian to exercise a minimum degree of care in supplying the child with adequate food, clothing, shelter, or education or medical care.
As any abused person will tell you is that they love their abuser inspite of the fact that they are being harmed by the same person. Most of the time the child feels like it's something they have done and all the want to do is change so that they can feel loved by the people they love. I think that the fact that Harry saw his family in the mirrior shows how bad he wanted a loving family and when he's love for the Dursleys wasn't returned he wished for his mom and dad back. I think if in his heart he didn't love the Dursleys he would have ran away a long time ago and he wouldn't defend his cousion when the Weasley twins played that prank on him or when the dementors came down that alley way.

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
