"TROUBLED SOULS, UNITE!!!"

Eu sempre gostei dos momentos nos filmes em que o personagem líder faz o discurso para motivar as tropas. E no cinema há ótimos exemplos disso: Morpheus em Matrix reloaded, William Wallace em Braveheart, Chaplin em O Grande Ditador, Rocky em Rocky Balboa e até mesmo o cômico discurso de Bluto em Animal House. (clique nos nomes para ouvi-los)
Esses discursos sempre me comoveram e devo confessar que alguns deles me levaram às lágrimas. Então, como ultimamente tenho andado com a moral baixa, resolvi escrever um discurso desses, de mim para eu mesmo, ou de mim para a nação de eus (Não se preocupem, não é um caso de múltipla personalidade, é só um recurso estilístico) para ver se consigo “rally the troops”.

My fellow countrymen, today we face a challenge greater than anything we've ever faced before. And comrades, you know as well as I do that we faced overwhelming odds before.
We've been through hard times recently, bouncing our heads against walls, facing closed doors, having our ambitions denied. The world is beating us relentlessly and we curved our backs in suffering.
After so many nos, we have forgotten what it is to claim what's rightfully ours. We've forgotten what we deserve. We’ve gotten used to solitude. But I beg you, believe me when I say that we deserve more.
And here lies our trial by fire. This is what I came here to ask of you, my comrades. We've reached a point where a choice is presented to us: to evolve or to perish. And it is with the purest conviction that I say this to you. THIS IS OUR FINEST HOUR! Look inside your hearts and you will know my words are true.
So, this is what I ask of you today, my brothers. To join arms with me, and fight, so that we may say the word that has been locked inside our hearts for so long, so that we may finally shout it out loud.
LOVE. This simple word that we craved so much for so long. Today we ride into unknown territory, and WE WILL CONQUER IT!
YES! JOIN ME! And tonight we shall stand as one, and as one we will stare our deepest fears in the eye, and send a message to anyone who can listen, that we won’t go quietly into the night. We will stand tall, AND WE SHALL HAVE OUR GLORIOUS DAWN!
