DRACO: You know what I loved most about your mother? She could always help me find light in the darkness. She made the world — my world, anyway — less — what was the word you used — “murky.”
As much as there are parts of Cursed Child that irk the core of my Potterness, I really love who Draco becomes. He has been forever transformed by love, and he’s become quite the source of wisdom. What Draco loved most about his wife is what I believe we should all have. Those people who help us find the light in the darkness. The more we have of those, and the more we can be that for others, the less murky our worlds will be.
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.” ~ Ephesians 5:13-14 NIV
Draco’s darkness was exposed to the light of his wife and that darkness became visible. Her light illuminated it and made it light because Draco chose to let it shine on him and change him. The same happens to us when we allow the light of others expose the darkness within us and illuminate that darkness until it turns to light.
I experienced a period of darkness in my early twenties, but a few lights came into my life. They illuminated my dark spots and turned them to light. That would not have happened if those lights ignored me or if I ignored them.
If you are light, shine bright so those who chose to can become light themselves. Don’t ever let the darkness intimidate you into a corner. Some will choose to remain in darkness, but many others will turn into light.
In short, love people. We all need it, and love has the power to change us all as it did Draco.
