Just finished the forth season of Doctor Who. All I can say is OH MY GOD!!!!
80. If Hagrid had disobeyed Dumbledore and given Harry to Sirius on the night Lily and James died, Sirius would have been proven innocent, the Ministry would have found and arrested Peter Pettigrew and Voldemort would have never risen again. Dumbledore would have sent the Ministry after him, he would have been discovered in Albania and thrown into Azkaban. Harry and Dumbledore would have destroyed all the Horcruxes together in their own time, and all would be well. However - Harry would have never met Ron and Hermione on the Hogwarts Express as he did not need help getting through the barrier thanks to Sirius. They would have never said as much as a ‘hello’ to eachother. So maybe things do happen for a reason, even if it doesn’t seem like it at first.
