ToP goes LOTR
When reality sucks, and your elected officials are crap where do you go?
The Lord of the Rings (cause its reality, I guess)
From "The Lord of the Rings," A Speech for Our Times
This speech comes at the end of the second film in the Lord of the Rings trilogy ("The Two Towers"). Our band of heroes has been split up from the ordeals they have encountered along the way. Each little group has encountered grave danger; each has had reasons for despair. But despite the darkness, they have endured, and persevered.
And now, with the film is nearly ended, Sam delivers this speech to his friend, and comrade, Frodo-- the Hobbit given a vital assignment that feels to him now beyond his capacity to fulfill.
It is a speech that can inspire us here in America in these dark times.
Look I go there and have for 40 years. I've been to the Tolkein Tree in Oxford and followed the Pub Hopping of the Inklings. i don't even think this fool has read the books, or the Silmarillion or the compendiums or the posthumous issues from son Steven.
This is just stupid, imho. One Top to rule them all?
My contribution cause I'm just like this...
“I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge.”
