My Star Wars Story

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out in theaters today. So, I thought I'd share my Star Wars story...

I graduated from high school in 1977. Most classmates signed my yearbook with a "Let's hang out." or “Have a nice summer!” But my friend Kim wrote, “May the force be with you.” I thought that was a strange thing to write. What the heck did it mean? Later that summer I saw Star Wars (A New Hope) for the first time. That's when I remembered one time at Kim's house. She had shown me photos of her brother, an actor. Said he was busy making an ‘outer space’ movie. Turns out, it was Mark Hamill. Luke Skywalker.
