“After dinner, we escaped to a movie: The Two Towers, part two of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was a good story, providing the escape we sought, but something more. Near the end of the film, when Frodo feels that the burden of the ring is overwhelming and he simply cannot continue the struggle, Sam tries to convince him to hold on. Frodo asks, “What are we holding onto, Sam?” “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.” Peace”
