One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all,
And in the darkness
In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie.'

wrote about a world that was ancient, that had many nations, mostly
friendly, all living together in the Land called Middle Earth.
Everything in it was old, even the men, and worth more than money
could buy because it was so old or so unique. Such as the Mithril
(true silver) Coat that Frodo used, given to him by Bilbo, given
to him by the Dwarves in The Hobbit. It was worth more money than
can be imagined because it was made with such a magical material
that only the Dwarves mined in Khazad-dŻm [Moria] .
that Mithril Coat securely displayed in a Museum,
with all the other things of Middle Earth, perhaps the
Undůmiel (Evenstar) pendant that Arwen gifted
in this museum there would be busts of the heroes
of Middle earth such as Aragorn, son of Arathorn,
His ancestor, Isildur, was the King who cut the Ring
of Power from the hand of Sauron with the sword Narsil
these statues could be the weapons of the
ranger sword, or the Bow that was given
to Legolas by Galadriel, or Gimli's axe
or sting the short sword of Bilbos that
he gifted to Frodo. This amazing sword was
lightweight, made by the elves and shone
blue when ever the enemy Orcs were close
Maybe maps of the ancient places beyond Middle Earth, would be
in this museum,
the history all written in Noldorin or Quenyan Elvish or Dwarvish,
none of these items can ever be replaced if they were to be destroyed
are probably wondering what I am on about as we all know that
this museum would be great and so historic. It would surely be
guarded very well. I have put my thoughts into such a context
because it emphasizes what is happening right now in Iraq, people
are going into museums and stealing or destroying things that
are as precious as those I have mentioned above would have been
to the Ancients.
is where Babylonia was, and in the old records this was where
man first set foot on the earth, where he first spoke and eventually
wrote documents. Some
of these documents had been preserved by people through the many
years and were in these museums and archives. They are there no
have just been through a war in Iraq. Both America and the United
Kingdom, where I live, were involved in it. Many of us in this
country and around the world marched to say we didn't want war.
My own feelings were that killing is wrong, the war was going
to be fought for the wrong reasons, and that it would make the
world a less safer place. Others felt the same way. However our
governments didn't listen they went to war and people were killed.
After a lot of the fighting had been done, the looting began,
but because we didn't have the manpower and probably because we
didn't have the UN peace keeping force over there the looting
continued. Now I wonder why these governments who were so gung
ho to go in and fight didn't think this through better and plan
for such incidents. The people would have been safer, hospitals
would have been able to continue and such irreplacable items would
now still be where they belong.
Crimson Tide, the movie Viggo Mortensen was in, one of the statements
was, "War is a continuation of politics by different means".
Well the politics were put aside in Iraq for just a few weeks
and war took their place, and during those few weeks people were
terrified, killed, maimed, had their lives completely ruined,
and the world lost things that they can never get back. What a
Sauron, and his league of Orcs, winning in Our World? Where are
people such as Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Boromir in our world,
surely there have to be some who care so much for the people and
their country/world that they will do whatever they can to save
it. They don't have to be actual fighters, but they do have to
be people who tell the truth and who care. They need to be people
who believe in the quality and substance of life and not just
becoming rich by the blood of the innocents. They have to be people
who wake up each morning with the thought of how they can make
the world a better place that day, not how much money they are
going to make. Our world is in the grip of gold fever, the more
people can make the happier they are. They no longer look at a
sunset as being a picture money can't buy, or a rainbow as a sign
from the Creator, they close their eyes to the natural world and
only open them to watch their bank balance rise.
have known people who were honest and caring, who managed to get
into a government post, who changed almost overnight. They took
the new power they had and abused it for their own gain. It made
me wonder if that happens to all politicians, and I have had a
hard time at elections since then. Right now I am not voting for
the main parties, I trust none of them, so in May I will vote
for the UK Independant party, they have to be better than what
we have now.
need good people with integrity, who are strong and trustworthy
to lead us, on both sides of the Atlantic. We need spiritual warriors
who care about lives and will act without putting us all in danger.
What I am asking for is not easy in today's world, but there has
to be some out there who can walk in those shoes.
only these people were real.
are our heroes
have a lot of opinions that are too heavy I guess, for a site
like this, but I just wanted something different on this site.
Of course we all know that again we went to war with Iraq and still have troops stationed there to this day, (2007).
Our heroes didn't appear to solve the problems in the Middle East and with the Middle East. We still await them!
I hope you enjoy this site. If you have any comments please write.
