Help Me, You’re My Only Hope


I still love Star Wars.

But even if you’re not a Star Wars fan, I PROMISE you’re going to appreciate my new favorite scene out of the entire saga.

Thirty minutes into The Force Awakens (VII), Finn and Rey, who just met, are slammed to the ground by an overhead laser blast and barely escape death.

Finn however, has been knocked unconscious due to the proximity of the explosion.

When his eyes open a moment later, he sees Rey and his very first thought is about HER safety. Not his own.

With dire concern in his voice he asks, “Are you okay??”

Not only is she okay, she’s taken aback by his reflexive selflessness.

Because HE was the one hurt!

Heroic love.

What’s more noble? More beautiful?


And with that my friends, thank you for taking the time to read this and may the force be with you.
