Samwise. Note the wise

Lord of the rings-Two Towers-Movie. A Nazgûl is flying over head. Frodo is hiding with Sam and all at once he gets up and walks towards the wraith. Sam looks at him and asks “Frodo where are you going?” Frodo keeps walking. He can’t hear Sam. He grabs on to the one ring from around his neck and stars to put it on is finger. He can’t focus because of what the ring is saying to him. Sam jumps up and runs to Frodo knocking him to the ground. Frodo grabs sting and points it at Sams neck yelling and ready to kill his dearest friend. Sam cries out “Its me! Its your Sam!” Frodo doesn’t respond. Sam says almost silently “Don’t you know your Sam?”

Frodo drops the sword and falls backwards. “I can’t do this anymore” 

Sam looks at Frodo for a moment. “I know. It’s all wrong.” He starts “By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. 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 had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. 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 on to something.”

Frodo whispers “What are we holding on to, Sam?” 

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