middle-earth meme: [1/3 speeches] Sam’s speech
but guys i’m not sure if you understand this. Tolkien wrote this. This great inspirational speech about how there is still good in the world. This was written by a man who survived the trenches of the first world war. A lot of Tolkien’s friends were killed early on when they arrived. JRR Tolkien saw humanity at it’s absolute worst. Hundreds of thousands of men killing each other in heinous ways. He wrote battle seems on the scale of the ones in LOTR because he’d seen it for him self. He saw all the hate, and the hurt- the absolute worst of human nature. Yet he was able to come out, and write this statement. That though darkness is strong, there is still good in the world and it is worth fighting for.
