Uplifting Thought of the Year (s)

“It’s like in the great stories, Mister 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 happened.  But in the end, it’s only a passing thing.  A shadow.  Even darkness must pass.  For the 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, Mister Frodo, I do understand.  I know now.  Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t.  They kept going.  Because they were holding onto something.”

“What are we holding onto, Sam?”

“That there’s some good in this world.  And it’s worth fighting for.”
