Minbari Mondays, A Lesson From “The Long Night” (B5:s4e5) On Strength


          1.  There are many kinds of strength, and they do not all look the same.


     Excellent episode for G’Kar.   He reminds us that all strength 

“…is not from weapons or arms.” 

             The heart-wrenching sacrifice ends on the note of continuity left on Captain Sheridan’s desk, when he took command of the station:

to strive … and not to yield.

  Can we learn, ourselves, to show such beautiful cooperative strength?                

    We can Do Better.


Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa.

I come in peace, I am your friend.


Action Prompts:

1.)  Share your thoughts on how we Human Beings might start to build a more fully inclusive society for all of us, and how this episode of Babylon 5 could help that process.

2.) Write a book, story, post or tweet that uses these thoughts.
