Battle of Hogwarts

423. During the Battle of Hogwarts, the head of Nearly Headless Nick finally came off. After school restorations were completed, he joined the Headless Hunt. Thus, Gryffindor needed a new house ghost. There were many young applicants, but the title was given to a certain red headed ghost who came from many generations of Gryffindors. Twelve years later, the first of the next generation started to trickle in, and a large group of eleven year olds were excited to meet their beloved uncle, one at a time.

17 years ago today, Colin Creevey and Lavender Brown fought for education and their friends. 17 years ago today, a boy lost his older brother and role model and two couples lost their child.

17 years ago today, Severus Snape died because he stayed loyal to the man who gave him a second chance. He died fighting for forgiveness. 

17 years ago today, 50 others died too. Leaving family and friends.  

Let us raise our wands in memory of all who fought bravely for what they believed in. They all fought for freedom and love, knowing that if they’d lose, they’d lose many friends and family. They didn’t want to live in a society were muggle-borns would be killed or had to go into hiding. They didn’t want to live in a society filled with darkness. They fought for light and goodness, because they knew that living without love isn’t living at all.
