The choices we make. The actions we take. Moments, both big and small, shape us into forces of destiny.
When Forces of Destiny was first announced, it was mentioned that the shorts would focus on everyday acts of heroism. So far, we’ve seen characters like Rey, Leia, and Ahsoka perform acts of kindness and bravery, reinforcing lessons that we should be applying in our own daily lives.
“The Stranger,” however, truly hit home with me because bullying is an unfortunate occurrence that takes place all too often in society. Many of us have experienced it in one form or another, and many more stand by and let it happen. Jyn, a character who was recently introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, didn’t do that. She stopped the troopers from harassing a young girl and returned her tooka to her.
This small yet meaningful act of heroism is something that needs to be seen more in media in order to inspire others to stand up to bullying and making a difference in their own lives.
