Good Afternoon from Philadelphia....
Today I heard a Youtube-Video from GeekZone, whom I'm subscribed to, where he deals with the Lord of the Rings, abbreviated as LOTR for short.
He covered the History of Oropher, who is the Father of Thranduil and the 2nd-King of the Sindar-Elves of Mirkwood.
Now, what I'm going to do is embed this video here where you can listen to it and get the Foundation of what caused Me to make this post right now and get it up and out to You.
Because it is a great compare-contrast with all kinds of real-world relevance for what is going on and why, for Black-Americans in particular. And it caught my attention where King-Oropher, due to everything that had happened leading up to him becoming the 1st-King of the Sindar-Elves. He makes a series of decisions that ultimately lead to his death.
But, as I have typed about before, race-&-place, and the history of said race-&-place, truly does matter.
And while King-Oropher's decisions do ultimately lead to His Death...!?
They set a Foundation for His People that ultimately becomes the Bulwark on which they stand and are able to go forward with, where it reminded me of Ogari-God Priest and why he has been doing what he has been doing, regarding the War for Unification of Nu-Sumar, and the measures he has taken as well as authorized amongst His Followers and Factions.
So before I go any further, check out GeekZone's Youtube channel and make sure you Like the Video and Subscribe if LOTR is your thing or if just being able to hear fantasy-based history is something that interest you.
GeekZone gives the Lore and does give some of his own thoughts, but what caused this post was due to the realization on my part. That he wasn't and isn't really there to dissect and discuss EXACTLY WHY King-Oropher made the choices he made and ultimately made the last choice he would make, in the midst of a battlefield, which would lead to his death.
His Video does give enough straight-forward, raw historical-information, but the breakdown of specifics and exact-details of WHY, King-Oropher did what he did, where on the Surface...!?
He appears to doom himself, and ON THE PERSONAL-LEVEL, he did.
Because it led to His Death, however...?
I understood completely why he did what he did and I saw the long-term benefits for His Race and the Place that they'd finally settled, thus this post was created, SO!?
Here is the Video and I'll come back on the other side of it with My Typed Commentary and Connect all the Dots...!
Oropher the Father of Thranduil

Is where I will give generalized updates!
