"I made a promise, Mr. Frodo. A promise. Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee."
Three days left to the challenge! Can you believe it! This month has gone by so quickly!
Day twenty-eight asks me to share what I consider is the most inspiring scene. The one I picked is popular, and some might consider it redundant, but hey! This is probably one of the best scenes EVER in all Middle-Earth.
Sam's speech from The Two Towers
(quoted from the movie)
Samwise Gamgee: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. 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 were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too young to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.
Frodo Baggins: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Samwise Gamgee: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.
