Théoden: "For death and glory?" Aragorn: " For Rohan. For your people." Gimli: "The sun is rising." [Aragorn looks up to the. Ride out and meet them.” June 4, / narniapal In both the movie and the book, this speech is said in response: “Where now the horse and the rider?.
What can men do against such reckless hate? Theoden says this in the moment that it looks like they have been beaten. The Uruk-hai do not care who they kill, they only want to kill because they hate all. And they have decimated the people of Rohan, pillaging, burning, and killing everyone for months. In both the movie and the book, this speech is said in response: Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing? Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow; They days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

I have a tendency to look at these same problems through the lens of literature, music, movies, etc. I find it helps me to process better, and to find courage and light.

There is reckless hate. They think they are doing a good thing, which hurts even more. And yet, you always find stories of people helping the victims and helping each other after the horrors.
You find stories of people running at the attackers to stop them with no thought to personal safety. You find stories of people running to help those severely injured, even in the midst of the attack, with no thought of themselves.
The rallying that happens is inspirational. And in that moment, you realize that there is still good. Sam Gamgee answers this in one of my favorite inspirational speeches in The Two Towers. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? Even darkness must pass. A new day will come.

Anonymous 4 Aug at We marvel at their courage, determination, integrity and intelligence. Times have changed, but if we ever had Sir Winston Churchchill with us today, I am sure he would have been the leader the world had then. Not only Great Britan but the world should honor such a illustrious individual.
Soares 22 Dec at 7: A great motivating speech from a great man. Geat speech that led to victory. But please note, Churchill invoked the name of God as the Mighty power where victory will come from.
