In the Lord of the Rings a hobbit was entrusted with the destruction of the ring, as opposed to kings and all powerful wizards. In his effort to destroy the ring he could not resist putting it on and in the end he succumbed to its power, only to have it bitten off and destroyed. When Aragon was inaugurated as King he did not chastise Frodo for his weakness and constant relapsing but honored him for his courage and fortitude. When it was time for him to take his throne he stopped and did not sit down. Instead he summoned Frodo up and had Frodo take his throne and all who were there honored him for the hero that he was. May we honor those who still struggle to destroy their rings in the same way.
