It was Faramir who seemed to be the first to recover from the news. With Aragorn telling them, it made it all so much more real. War? It just didn't make sense. It just couldn't... His head told him one thing, his heart quite another. It could be happening. It was. Gently moving Eowyn out the way, he walked over the where the king stood, alone with his back up against the tree. He kept his voice low as he spoke, but the silence in the room was deadly, and at whatever volume he chose, everyone would have been able to here him. "Aragorn, this is the time where you come up with an inspirational speach, or a battle plan. Something. These people need you."

Aragorn looked at Faramir in dismay but inside he understood the steward's position. His citizens needed to hear something positive after what they had just witnessed; they didn't need to see a king who was falling apart. He gripped Faramir's arm briefly in reassurance and turned to face his people.

"My dear friends, you have been here through that most surprising of announcements so there is no point in lying to you. The enemy has returned. His armies multiply even as we stand here. With the elves and Mithrandir across the seas we have very few allies, we have very little chance of victory. But," his eyes glowed as he looked out over the assembled crowd, "as long as there is that possibily I shall continue to fight. No matter how bleak the battle may appear it can always be turned, no matter how bad the situation we will triumph" he insisted ferverantly. "We must triumph," he said quietly but firmly.
"Ladies and Gentlemen the time of the elves is over, it is time for men to rise. There is not one person in here I would not give up my life for. However I shall not win this battle on my own. I need the aid of the free peoples. I need you all. Together we can beat Sauron, together we can free Middle-earth from his oppression once an for all. If you are with me."
