Trooping with Rebel Legion and 501st at Scottish Rite
I have been really wanting to go to one of these since I joined Rebel Legion. Having the honor of visiting sick kids with the fun of Star Wars really makes me happy. I was really nervous I wouldn't be able to find it, but God was merciful and I didn't get lost. Also, Jake was there who I knew, which was a huge relief. Someone who recognized me! Everything worked out, and it was a lot less scary than I feared. Two others from the 501st were there - Imperial officers - for whom it was also their second troop, which made it special too.
It was really sad to see all the sick kids, but I was glad we could make their day happier. There was an adorable little 3-year old girl, who was afraid of Santa, but not of us, and she walked over and grasped my lightsaber with her tiny hand, staring at its glow.
