Hold your ground

Hugh Hewitt reprises Lord of the Rings:

Witness Aragorn's speech outside the gates of Mordor:

Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers.

I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.

A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.

An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day!

This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

This is what warriors do. They don't cut and they don't run or take flight when they have been bloodied.

Without men and women like this, I would not be free.
