Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e21) “Rising Star” on Duty, Honor, and Peace “by the ballot”

First, please remember what W. E. B. Du Bois said about making this a better world for all by voting:  Vote.

and now:

Marcus is gone, but Delenn is right:

“As long as we speak his name, he will always be a part of us.”

From following a mad king through his logic, to following your calling to this logical conclusion, as Delenn again asks:

“He followed the path of his heart.  How many of us can say that?”

And then the ambassador goes on to found an alliance “dedicated to the higher principles of duty, honor, and peace.”  But best of all, as a result of this alliance, the Mars colony is now free!!  

“What is built, endures.  And what is loved, endures.”

Last Monday’s review was s4e20: Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e20) “Endgame” and Service vs. Orders ,


Next  Monday will be the last Minbari Monday: s4e22: The (almost)Last Minbari Monday (B5:s4e22) “The Deconstruction of Falling Stars”


Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa.

I come in peace, I am your friend.
