Response to the Emperor

This is not only the final chapter of Star Wars, this is the final chapter of many relationships. Honestly, many of us have been or will be getting married in a few years time. Higher education, our Government, Job Advancement, Children: all of these are factors that will draw upon us and prioritize our lives, inevitably drawing some of us apart for years, decades at a time.

Soak this time up. Talk with someone at length and find out what their dreams are, someone you may not talk to again for a very long time after the curtains close on Episode III.
I don't mean to sound like a downer, but this is life. We are in it and there is nothing to do but accept it and make the best of it.

This campout will kick major ass because it must, because it is the last time all of us will camp out for anything dear to each one of us again (unless they release The Passion in 3D).

May God bless all of us as we enjoy and soak up one of the most important movies ever made. And I mean that from the depths of my soul.

May the Force be with you.
