May The Fourth Be With You

I’m going to start a bit of a series with this, and I hope to reach out to all my fellow geeks. Maybe this is just retreading ideas we have all had, but with this being a grand day for Star Wars fans and geek and nerds in general, why not say it anyways.

Inspired by others, I wish to make a simple statement.

We are geeks. We are nerds. We are fanboys. We are otaku. More importantly, we are family. This is more than just a hobby, it is a lifestyle. This is our culture. It does not need to die, it simply needs to flourish. We may hit bumps in the road; we may get the occasional stone tossed at us. Words will be said to us that are both praise and scathing. It hurts, yes, but the pain will not last. And for every one bully you face, a hundred fellow brothers and sisters will come to your aid.

Just remember, if you feel down or scared about showing your geek and nerd to the world, think about every 501st trooper who gives up their time to bring a smile to a sick child. Remember every year how we unite to say, “May the fourth be with you.” Remember the friends you made as you stood in line for that chance to meet Stan Lee. Never forget that the money you spent on a shirt, hat, or even an in game pet, went to a good cause.

Why are we family? We stand together, shoulder to shoulder, equal in our own eyes and hearts. As long as you believe in the geek within you, you never have to prove your geek to anyone.

Let’s have a conversation, shall we?
