From Common Ground

Reposted from 6/25/06

"It's like in the great stories, Master Frodo -- the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy. How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?

"But in the end it's only a passing thing. This shadow, even darkness, must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer.

"Those are the stories that stay with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why.

"But I think I do understand. I know now, that folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back but they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something."

(Frodo: "What is it?")

"It's that theres some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."
