There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.
The Force surrounds us and penetrates us. the Force binds the galaxy together. All living beings in space and time, and indeed space and time itself, are subject to the ebb and flow of the Force throughout the stars.There are those who can feel the Force's whispers, and are able to answer back. Such beings sensitive to the Force are born with a duty: to protect and preserve all life, as products of the Living and Unifying Force. From that duty we, the Jedi Order, emerge. We serve all life, and by extension, we serve the Force itself. The Force is the fount and sustainer of all life, and yet cannot be described as "living" itself.
The Force simply is.
Yet the Jedi, the servants of the Force, do not "simply" exist as the Force does. Our purpose is the precursor and the hypothesis of our e

People... why do you hate this movie? Come on, let's get to adult mature constructive manners - why do you hate this movie? It would make sense if you hated it because you don't care for the Star Wars franchise. But that's the funny part - you praise the original trilogy all the time in comparison, talking about this and that you thought was made wrong and overall ruined all three prequels to you, as it changed everything.
Here's the thing - the movie is only hated for the mere purpose of being different. They used a ton of CGI, they gave new styles to everything, they gave some new types of lighthearted elements, and you didn't like it therefor as it "ruined" the mood and tone and style of the original trilogy's. But that just means you prefer the way they made the original trilogy - it doesn't give you the right to bash the living shit out of the prequels for no apparent reason. But let me go through the major issues haters talk about over and over again, and let me respond to them:

Those that presume to take up the mantle of the dark side do so for trivial reasons. Some, consumed by their impotent rage at their own weakness, seek to shroud themselves in darkness to futilely mask their inferiority. Others simply seek an outlet for their frivolous hedonisms, abounding in debauchery simply to spite the sensibilities of other beings.
Those beings have no understanding of what it means to be Sith.
Those that do not understand will never be Sith.
To be Sith, in the very end, is to be fully autonomous in will and power. A Sith Lord and his ambitions are inextricable; it is what defines him, and what forms the central aspect of his identity. And identity is the source of a Sith's power. One's will and ambition is what defines him as a being, and in turn the fulfillmen

He cast a sparing glance at the lampshade that lay there on the ground, a bit banged up now before shooting a glare at his bear.

It was just after gym class and we all had to take a shower; school rules.
I skipped a few grades in my lifetime which was why I am with Miko and Jack in the high school.
I walked slowly towards my locker avoiding any shoves that kids were giving each other. I sighed in relief when I made it safely to my locker, or so I thought.
Before I even turned the dial on my lock, some kid came running up to me all out of breath.
"You're the kid?! I am so sorry." He said covering his mouth. I have no idea what he is talking about so I stayed silent. "Vince." Was all he said.
I groaned. "Scrap." I muttered under my breath. He's been a bully to everybody since he was probably a baby. But, he made sure I got it worse maybe because I was a 'nerd' as he called, maybe because I was friends with Jack, or maybe both, I have

No one knew. No one except for Alan.
He knew exactly how he was going to die. He may not have known exactly when, but he knew it was soon; very soon. The pain of the attacks was getting greater by the day, and they were getting shockingly more frequent.
He knew exactly what would happen.
It would start off as a normal attack; his heart give one loud thump in warning, and he would double over, clutching at his chest as if that would make it any better. He would begin to gasp, cough and splutter in pain, then try and bear it until it passed.
But it would not pass.
And all of his senses would be thrashed in the onslaught.
He would hear his own wretched screaming and coughing, piercing his otherwise numb ears. He wouldn't hear the foot

You hummed gleefully to yourself as you skipped down the sidewalk of your small town. It was partly cloudy, which also meant that the sun would still shine. These kinds of days were your favorite because it was still nice enough for people to go outside and have fun in the sun, as they like to say. Though, you only liked days like these because of your cheerful personality; you never worried about anything. At funerals, you were the only one who still had somewhat of a smile, because you knew that crying wouldn't make anyone happier. You were the one people went to when they were down in the dumps because you could make anyone smile, even if it was for a moment.
You stopped in your tracks when you heard someone crying nearby, though it was muffled due to distance.

I can't quote Scripture. I don't know much theology, and I can't speak for all the divisions of Christendom. But, as a practicing Christian, I do know a bit about my religionenough to get annoyed when ignorant people (I'm looking at you, Angry Forum Posters) consider Christianity to be hateful and Christians to be naïve.
I'm Orthodox Christian. The Orthodox Church is regarded as the original Christian church, dating back to the time of Christ. (No, the Catholic Church isn't the firstthey split from the Orthodox in 1054 over many issues.) I won't go into those details here, but if you are curious to know more, a fantastic article which explains the differences between the Orthodoxy and Catholicism can be found in the authour's comments.
Anyway, since I'm Orthodox Christian, many beliefs shared by the Orthodox will show up in the following essay.
