The Last Rave
(…) hear us.
It is true, what many of you have heard.

(…)

Believe us when we say we have a difficult time ahead of us. But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it. We stand here before you now truthfully unafraid. Why? Because we believe something you do not? No. We stand here without fear because we remember. We remember that we are here not because of the path that lies before us, but because of the path that lies behind us.

(…)

We remember that which matters most: we are still here.

(…)

Tonight, let us shake this cave. Tonight, let us tremble these halls of earth, steel,
and stone. Let us be heard from red core to black sky. Tonight, let us make them
remember: (…) we are not afraid.

Morphues’ speech from The Matrix :
Reloaded edited, cut when about machines, war or Zion, made plural.
