A Jedi knows that in the fight against the dark side, you always have to take the higher place instead of immediately grabbing a deadly lightsaber.
And that's exactly what 10-year-old Aiden Vazquez did when he was in the face
Aiden was hospitalized after thugs called him by name, slapping him in the face and stealing his backpack at school on Monday. He left with a few stitches to close a wound over his eyebrow.
When Aiden's mother asked why he was not defending himself, the boy explained that he was inspired by Jedi figures.
He said he has the idea of Star Wars, and that combating violence by force is "not the Jedi way," according to ABC News.
Star Wars actor Mark Hamill heard about the story and praised the boy Fan on Twitter for his courage.
"I'm so proud of you that you can be a Jedi in real life" Hamill tweeted to Vazquez Wednesday . "Congratulations, Aiden – The power will be with YOU … Always, your fan, mh."
If anyone understands the ways of power, it is Hamill who is best known for playing the legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker's. Considering that the last Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, ended with Luke Skywalker, who used violence to avoid direct conflict, there is an interesting parallel there.
Hamill will again appear as Skywalker in the still-to-be-named Star Wars Episode 9, which will be released worldwide on December 20, 2019.
