May the Forth Be With You!

2010 May 4

While the actual anniversary for the original release of Star Wars in 1977 is still 20 days and some hours away, I’d like to do my best to remind you “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”  In my wishing you a great day today, I’d like you to consider the galaxy around you.

What can you do to make it a better place to live, work and play?

The Force may just be a plot device in a series of movies, books, games, toys, clothing, wall coverings, etc.  But if you just consider what it is that really does binds it all together.  And consider what binds us as humans together, maybe that would be enough for us all to treat each other as equals.  Find some way to communicate with each other with just a little less negativity.  I may just be one person, but I see our similarities far more than the differences.

“Search your feelings, you know it to be true.”

While the quote comes from the villain in one story, it turns out he had redemption in the end.  It has to be that his story of redemption can help us find something worth redeeming in even our most difficult of enemies.

There is so much we could do if we all saw the commonality instead of the differences.  Just think about it.
