STAR WARS FANS: You have GOT to check this out and make a contribution if you can. Been following this project for a long time and it’s finally back in the light after so many years of collecting dust!!!

Why is this so important to me, you ask?
Quite a long time ago, back in 2007 actually, I stumbled upon a fantastic live ORIGINAL Star Wars show that I would later become a huge fan of and change my life.


Check them out here:

After seeing these productions on YouTube, I was inspired to build my own LED sabers, which helped me acquire some knowledge on electrical wiring and the like, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to major in electrical engineering (I have since changed my major, but that’s beside the point). I found myself delving deeper into the saber community and, much like how theatre impacted me now, found a sense of belonging. I may not be as involved in it now, but back then I looked up to these people and was inspired to create my own Star Wars universe, which I did. The creator of this show was so nice, he even offered to help me create it when I asked! It’s a silly little concept now, but back then it meant so much to me. I have never felt that inspired to try something new.

The third installment of this trilogy was delayed numerous times before actually being cancelled. 6-7 years later, it’s back! And I actually have a really great feeling that it will make it this time round. But not without some help!

Time has passed and things have changed now, but one thing is for certain: this project inspired me as a kid to try new things. It made such a huge impact on my life to start being creative. And I want to give back!

Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.
