Network Post: Minerva McGonagall
The children and young people were exceptionally brave today. Many of my students wanted to volunteer to help with meals and putting supplies together. I also have thank you letters from them to all of you as a whole, and I will display them soon.
Their parents and guardians are to be commended. I know it was difficult to decide to fight or participate in the defense knowing that it meant being away from them, but I hope you know that whatever choice you made helped keep your child safe, and you are an excellent parent for it.
I'm reminded of when I was a little girl and the wars were raging in both the Muggle and magical communities. It brought out some of the best in both young and old. I'm also reminded that though the battle is over, the effects will linger for a long time. Please do take care of yourself and those around you who may struggle in the aftermath.
