"And so it goes, and so it goes, and soon will you, I suppose."  - Billy Joel

~~
In 1979, a conflicted boy had been murdered in his youth. "We learn from our mistakes." "It's okay to make mistakes." Everyone always says that, but how about when they create major consequences? When your problems become terrorism, suddenly it doesn't apply to you. You're not a child anymore, you're a mass murder. You don't get to make mistakes, you don't get the chance to learn from them, you don't get a second chance. You will always and forever be known as the cold blooded enemy. 

But what if you realize just how much pain you've inflicted? What if the whole reason you started doing what you did was to avoid that exact thing? Can you still try to fix you're problem? Yes. But will you be remembered for it? No. You can try, and that's what matters, but in the end, you will always pay for the conflict you created in the world.

Regulus Black died trying to fix his own mistakes. Was he remembered for it? No, that's the sad truth. People thought of him as a bad brother, a bully, or a follower of the Dark Lord. Nobody ever realized that the reason he did all of these things, was that he wanted to make his parents proud. He wanted to be a good enough son.
