'We can push it off on the kids,' said Amycus, his piglike face suddenly crafty. 'Yeah that's what we'll do. We'll say Alecto was ambushed by the kids, them kids up there' – he looked up at the starry ceiling toward the dormitories – 'and we'll say they forced her to press her Mark, and that's why he got a false alarm… . He can punish them. Couple of kids more or less, what's the difference?'

'Only difference between truth and lies, courage and cowardice,' said Professor McGonagall, who had turned pale, 'a difference in short, which you and your sister seem unable to appreciate. but let me make one thing very clear. You are not going to pass off your many ineptitudes of the students of Hogwarts. I shall not permit it.'

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling. A conversation between Amycus Carrow and Minerva McGonagall demonstrating how innocent people and children are used during war.

I feel so old when I realize the last Harry Potter came out when I was in middle school. 

"Don’t you see? Voldemort himself created his worst enemy, just as tyrants everywhere do! Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress? All of them realize that, one day, amongst their many victims, there is sure to be one that rises against them and strikes back!"
Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

“Yes, it was rather horrible,” said Luna conversationally. “I still feel very sad about it sometimes. But I’ve still got Dad. And anyway, it’s not as though I’ll never see Mum again, is it?”

"Er-isn’t it?" said Harry uncertainly.

She shook her head in disbelief. “Oh, come on. You heard them, just behind the veil, didn’t you?”

"You mean…"

"In that room with the archway. They were just lurking out of sight, that’s all. You heard them.”
