Is there any better tale than one that reminds us of man's dark depravity, and the redemption offered warmly in God's grace? I see bits of myself in every character. A reflection of every time I cling to justice without mercy in it's wake - Inspector Javert. The rotten scoundrel in me - Thernardier. Fantine. Cosette. Eponine. A person desperately aware of and clinging to his own redemption - Jean Valjean. I weep. Every. Time.
Leaving you with some beautiful words from the epilogue.
Do you hear the people sing? Lost in the valley of the night It is the music of a people who are climbing to the light For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
They will live again in freedom in the garden of the Lord They will walk behind the ploughshed, they will put away the sword. The chain will be broken and all men will have their reward!
Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Somewhere beyond the barricade is there a world you long to see? Do you hear the people sing? Say do you hear the distant drums It is the future that they bring when tomorrow comes
