Open Meeting Announcement: There Are Some Grapes In This World

Samwise Gamgee, greatest friend in the world and gardener extraordinaire gives us a speech to uplift us in the darkest of times 

I know.

It’s all wrong

By rights we shouldn’t even be in Lerner 510 at 9 pm tonight.

But we are.

It’s like in the great open meetings 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 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 open meetings 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 meetings had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t.

Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

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