Dear musician friends (especially in the US):
Today is not a happy day. Remember through this dark time why you play music, and how powerful it is. Remember Bertold Brecht and Dimitri Shostakovich and Woodie Guthrie, who used music as their weapon against tyranny. Remember all the times a performance has touched you like no other thing can, and channel that power to heal this broken world. And remember these words from Leonard Bernstein:
“This will be our response to violence: To make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”
But imagine, if Harry heard voices, what do you think Sirius would have heard? Yes Harry lived a shitty life he lost his parents and Cedric (up until that moment) but Sirius, oh my dear god Sirius, he lost his blood brother, his brother, Lily, Marlene, Fleamont, Euphemia, half of the Order, he would have been so drawn to the veil, he probably would have walked through it willingly if he hadn’t fallen in the first place.
