Some of my friends who are not "into" things like Star Wars, wondered what that thing was in the middle of the pic. Many of my friends, however, did recognize R2D2, one of four characters in all six Star Wars films. For anyone not familiar with R2D2 (R2 for short), here is a better idea of what he's like:
Wait! Wait! That doesn't give a clear picture of R2D2's character which is why I like him. In short, he is probably THE unsung hero in the Star Wars universe. In each of the six films he saves the good guys at least once.
- He's saved his friends from being crushed in a trash compacter.
- He delivers the plans to the Death Star to the rebels so they can destroy it.
- He introduces Luke to his mentor, Obi Wan Kenobi.
- He saves the queen of Naboo by fixing her ship while she's under attack.
- He even puts his best friend C3PO back together a couple of times.
That's his mission, to be the ultimate servant, never, ever wanting something for himself.and there are many more such examples.So I admire this character because of his completely lack of selfishness, and his complete devotion to good. We could learn a lot from R2.
If you really want to know about R2 check here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R2-D2.
And, yes, he does remind me of a Bible verse: "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Galatians 6:9,10
For those of you wondering what R2's been up to since Star Wars, well....he's done some advertising work:
And a couple of PSA's like these:
And this one...
What a great little guy!
