If Star Wars has taught me anything, it’s to embrace the differences that make you stand apart from the rest of the crowd.
The films inspire you to not let your fears of rejection stand in the way of being who you are. We all have insecurities that keep us from showing our true colors, but if we learn to embrace our uniqueness, others will do the same.
Unafraid to let her geek flag fly, the young girl in the commercial below wore a stormtrooper helmet to school every day. While she initially received some questionable looks, she didn’t anything get in her way. Eventually, her classmates made a touching show of compassion and learned a surprising secret in the process.
Raise your hand if that surprise hit you right in the feels. If you know a friend that’s a sucker for a heartwarming video, pass this their way. Just be sure to tell them to grab some tissues before hitting play.
