Harry Potter’s Parents Remembered on 30th Anniversary of Their Death

#RIP James and Lily Potter is trending on what would be the 30th anniversary of the fictional wizards' death at the hand of Lord Voldemort.  

As hundreds of millions of readers and moviegoers know, Harry Potter’s parents were Gryffindor students in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who were subsequently forced into hiding due to a prophecy about their infant son.
