SAY YOUR PRAYERS AND LIGHT A FIRE.
WE'RE GONNA START A WAR.
It's easy to ignore the build-up. It's easy to look at the world through a child's kaleidoscope eyes, to miss the building horror and the increasing brutality. It's easy to think that these things could never touch your life, could never hurt you. Out of sight, out of mind, and it's easy to forget. It's easy to ignore the warning signs, even as they scream before your very eyes.
But it's not easy to forget the war, as it explodes around you. Three children kidnapped out of their own beds at school. Seven dead citizens, lying in the streets of muggle Trafalgar Square. Even the young Minister of Magic can't ignore the anguish, as the Order of the Phoenix is outed and a single headline burns its way through the European newsstands:
“ MINISTER OF MAGIC CONFIRMS THE RUMORS: WIZARDING WORLD AT WAR “
They always told you to be brave. To keep your chin up and your eyes open. Well, maybe you ought to close them -- the world's not looking so pretty anymore.
THIS IS HOW THE FIRE STARTS.
THIS IS HOW WE CRASH AND BURN.
