Today we acknowledge a really terrible loss. Cedric Diggory was as you all know, exceptionally hard-working, infinitely fair-minded, and a fierce, fierce friend. Now I believe you all have the right to know exactly how he died. You see, Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord Voldemort. The Ministry of Magic, does not wish me to tell you this. But not doing so I think would be an insult to his memory. Now the pain we all feel, reminds me reminds us. That though we may come from different places, and speak in different tongues. Our hearts beat as one. The bonds of friendship we made this year, will be more important than ever. You remember that, and Cedric Diggory would not have died in vain. You remember that, and we will celebrate a boy who was kind, and honest, and fair, and true. Right to the very end.
