[[At the moment, my life is fulfilled because I’m having inspiration again: I’m writing a book called “The History of Magical Institutions” and it lists the wizarding schools of the world. I just started and it will be a lot of work, but I hope I will finish it some day.]]
If any one of us were face to face with a mass-murdering, homicidal maniac (especially if it wasn’t our choice to be there, or if our parents mistakes put us in there) we would probably be trying to keep ourselves from wetting our pants. Not standing up to him or fighting him. That’s not cowardice: that’s self-preservation.
