  •  Saw the LOTR Trilogy (6+ / 0-)

    a few weeks ago in the theaters, and one line stands out:

    "No man should have to bury a child."

    Thus said Theoden, King of Rohan, as he buried his son Theodred who was murdered at the hands of Saruman's forces. It wasn't in the book, but I'm glad it was in the movie.

    No man -- or woman -- should have to bury a child.

    And far too many, in far too many cities and towns and villages, are burying their children tonight, and next week, and for months and years on end.

    "If we ever needed to vote we sure do need to vote now" -- Rev. William Barber, NAACP
