Inspirational Video

For all its faults, the Lord of the Rings movies have their inspirational moments. Here is a speech that a local radio host played for Memorial Day.

It Is Not This Day

I think we should view it looking forward rather than back.

That was a good speech, indeed! Although I haven't seen them/read them, LOTR seems to have plenty to please a guy like me. I doubt my opinion will change, but I figure I will give them a read sometime, hopefully sooner rather than later (already picked up the books).

Many years have passed since my last reading of LOTR, but I do recommend it heartily. I don't want to be guilty of revealing spoilers, so let me know when you finish, and we can discuss it.

OK! It will likely be some time before I get to it--beyond being swamped these days, I'm trying to read a history of the battle of Thermopylae.

I'm sure we'll have plenty to talk about on the subject when the time comes. :-)
