Since the dark days, our great nation has known only peace. Ours is an elegant system, conceived to nourish and protect. Your districts are the body, and the Capitol is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you. But if you resist the system, if you starve yourself, if you fight against it, it’s you who will bleed. I know you’ll stand with me, with us, with all of us, together as one. Panem today. Panem tomorrow. Panem forever.
Just so people know, the last few lines, “Panem Now, Panem Tomorrow, Panem Forever” is a rephrasing of George Wallace’s speech given as governor of Alabama in the 1960’s, talking about segregation. He said “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” The writers are trying to show the ignorance and evil of the system, and I hope people will see this and make the connection.
- What about breakfast?
- You’ve already had it.
Though it’s just 72 seconds long, and Peeta only appears for about 30 of those seconds, through watching the trailer, it becomes apparent that he was an excellent choice for this role. Hutcherson says nothing, only turns his head and looks straight at the camera, but in that moment you can read all the desperation, anger, and emptiness in his eyes. This is a person who has been hijacked by the capital and forced to stand for what he tried so hard to fight against. You feel all that as his sinister glare reminds you that in this film he isn’t the young boy madly in love with Katniss, but is instead the Capitol’s weapon. [x]
You’re right, that crap grows on you.
and people wonder why this is my favorite song XD
"An emergency is when daleks burst into the class and start shooting everything and take us all captive." - student when going over emergency procedures
"My family had a Doctor Who marathon over break and we just started Matt Smith and I hated David Tennants last words and my mom cried. Then we were going to watch a weeping angel episode but it scared my brother…and me BECAUSE THEYRE CREEPY." -student describing his winter break
"The best part of my break was when I watched the Doctor Who Christmas special" -student explaining his favorite part of his Christmas break.
Then there was a conversation between three students debating their favorite doctors. It was wonderful. XD
