Day 219 - Darth Chase

Tonight I showed my son, Chase, Star Wars (The original, Episode IV: A New Hope) for the first time. It was the first he'd seen any Star Wars of any kind. I was excited. He was excited. It was amazing sitting there and watching my childhood favorite unfold before his eyes. When the movie was over I asked him if he liked it. He said "YEAH!" with wide eyes and a large grin. But then I asked him what his favorite part was and he stunned me. He said, "Darth Vader!"... WAIT WHAT?!?! When I was a child Darth Vader was scary and dark. My son liked... no LOVED Darth Vader. Does this mean he's evil? I don't know, but I will tell you this about my son: There is good in him. I've felt it.
