Thanks to some free toys inside Cheerios a couple months back, Ru-Jun has developed a fascination and obsession with Star Wars. This unfortunately includes the violent lightsaber fights and who dies and who kills who. Unavoidable, sadly. I’ve tried to impress on her that fights are a last resort and that death is not to be taken lightly. Hopefully that sets in at some point in her mind. She has seen the original three movies and the last one of the new series. Her favorite characters are the female characters, Leia and Amidala, which I think is a good sign, amid all the violence. These are powerful and admirable characters.
