A Little About Heroism
Austin G.

This article will indeed be extemely short because I've little time on my hands and I cannot spend it giving the full account of my thoughts.

You must think about all the characters that gave any part in the destruction of the Ring. Without any one of those characters the entire mission would have ended in failure. Even Gollum himself is a hero. Without him the Ring would have never been destroyed and would have been turned over to Enemy at the Cracks of Doom.

Many of you might argue though that Gollum did this out of desire for the Ring and not on his own accord. Yet neither did Frodo take on this quest as a free choice.

I feel that all those who led to the undoing of the Ring are THE HEROES (or heroins)! But of course this opinion is always up for debate.
