Why Become a Jedi?

Okay, so one of my all-time favorite characters was Luke Skywalker, well at least until, The Last Jedi. I won’t get into that right now. When I was a kid I bought a green lightsaber and held it my hands, knees bent like a swashbuckler and then imagined myself holding off and defeating the bad guys from the empire.

As I grew into adulthood, I realized I couldn’t ever become a Jedi Knight. At least, not like Luke Skywalker. There wasn’t going to be anyone from the empire coming for me, I’m fortunate there, though the storm troopers seemed a lot like incompetent Nazi’s.  Well, there aren’t stormtroopers I must fend off, but modern life presents its own challenges. They range from money to family and fretting about all the responsibilities one must consider when operating a household in the modern world. My goal is  to become a Jedi in the real world.
