“Do. Or do not. There is no try,” Yoda said.

Often times we get swept up in life, and we live complacently. We don’t rock the boat or think outside the box. Thankfully this week, a cashier in the South Post commissary changed things up in an unexpected way.

The commissary celebrated with cake, and pictures with Kylo Ren and Darth Vader. Children thinking they were about to endure a bland trip to the grocery store, were happily surprised upon arrival.

Samantha Rosas, a commissary cashier, began planning this event a few months ago. She felt that Star Wars is universal, unifying and fun.

Denita Washington, a commissary cashier, helped set up while dressed in Star Wars attire with Rosas.

Rosas and Washington greeted guests, offering cake and other gifts to children and adults as they entered.

The event started small, but it grew as a joint effort between the South Post Commissary and South Post Exchange.

Commissary guests of all ages posed for pictures, even play fighting with Star Wars characters and merchandise. Families and friends came together laughing.

Star Wars is a classic to so many for a reason. Some believe it provides a story of courage in the face of evil. For others, it provides comic relief that is needed in life from time to time.
