At work last night, as I was booking the Expo weekend off, and explaining WHY I needed it off, it suddenly dawned on one of the managers why I seemed familiar to him when I was hired. He said, 'You were here for the premiere of RotS, weren't you? You were one of them!' Very proudly, I answered, 'YES. I AM.' Another manager asked me, why? And I said, Why what?? She said, 'Why Star Wars? What's so great about it? Why do you love it so much??' Hmmm.........I thought it was an interesting question, coming from a non fan. So I told her.......... .... for me, Star Wars rescued me many times in my childhood. It took me to new worlds, taught me about change, about finding inner strength and inspired me to become more than I ever thought possible. It taught me that I shouldn't be afraid to be myself, to believe in the impossible and that there is good in this world. Lessons about honour, family, friendship and loyalty. Every movie has a lesson - and I discovered each lesson was relatable to my life. Besides the philosphical stuff, it's just plain AWESOMELY INCREDIBLEY COOL. Light sabers? WICKED AMAZING. The JEDI? I can't even describe how BadASS they are. Villain? No one beats VADER. Space ships, wookiees, YODA - the list is endless. So - what are your reasons for loving Star Wars as much as you do??
