Over the last month or so, I’ve been amazed at the influence pop culture has on the rest of the world. With Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa happening, still the news (and toy shelves) have included many articles related to Star Wars.
Since 1977, when this world first saw Luke Skywalker riding a Landspeeder, Princess Leia speaking in a hologram, Han Solo navigating the Millennium Falcon, and Obi Wan etching his presence and his advice in our minds, Star Wars has been an Earth-wide phenomenon.
And why not? What does Obi Wan say?
“The Force will be with you—always.”
Isn’t that what we are all celebrating now, the force of goodness and light and love? Let’s celebrate the Force, the Power that lives in each of us now and every day.
love and light to you, dear heart—always,
