May the Force Be With Us All.

Not sure how many of you have been following the story of Katie, a first grader who was getting teased by the boys because she brought a Star Wars thermos to school and that is a "boy thing." Katie's story went viral and gained the support of the geek community. Someone started a Facebook Event to support Star Wars, Geekdom, and Katie. Just check out #maytheforcebewithkatie on Twitter to see comments and pictures from people all over the world.

As many of you I have a deep love of Star Wars. It started back when I was around 3 or 4. I remember playing Star Wars with the boys. I was always Princess Leia. In high school I joined a Star Wars role playing chat room. I attended one of the meet-ups for the chatroom when Episode I came out in 1999. I'm still friends with many of the people I met there, thanks to the internet and facebook.

Today in honor of Katie, I am wearing my very old and much loved Princess Leia shirt. It's so worn that you can't even tell that she's standing in front of a Tantive IV anymore. Here is a picture of me in my shirt and holding my USB Lightsaber Lamp from ThinkGeek:

May the Force Be With Katie. May the Force Be With All Of You.
