As a tribute to May the 4th Be With You and all of my geeky Star Wars friends I wanted to share a quick post on the wisdom of Star Wars. First off, Star Wars holds a special place in my heart. It is one of the first movies that I remember seeing in the theatre as a little kid and it’s just something that I grew up with. And then they had the three prequels that I got to enjoy as an adult and recently the 7th episode came out, and while it did fall short in some areas, it was fun and entertaining.
And a lot of us love Star Wars. It’s the classic story of good vs. evil and so much more. I mean look how far they’ve come with racism. Have you ever seen such a bunch of culturally diverse people hanging out and working together? There’s no, we don’t like this guy because he has a fish face. You’re either good or evil and that determines if we like you or not.
It’s also a story of hope, perseverance, and faith. A small band of rebels going up against the omnipotent Death Star. Luke Skywalker knowing he was meant for something more in his life. And then having faith that against all odds, good will prevail.
