It's worth fighting for

Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam: There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for.

Yes, I believe there IS good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.

Something about the Arizona shooting, not the shooting itself, or the people killed, or the lives fractured, but the aftermath of the tragedy has given me hope. It's given me hope that decent people still rise up, take action, and protect those who need it. 

Politicians and others (while victims were still fighting for their lives and families were fresh with grief over those killed) used the situation to promote their particular ideologies.  BUT, saner heads prevailed, and those who might have used the devastation to springboard their agendas have been silenced.

Those idiots who protest funerals are planning to picket the 9-year-old little girl's funeral.  BUT, they will be shut out.  Quite literally by angel wings, built high and large to shield the family and friends from their satanic protest and destructive signage.

People can do good, and they do.  People can see truth.  People can help others.

There is good in this world, Mr. Frodo, there is.  And, it's worth fighting for.
