Being part of the Jedi Order means that they all have young padawans’ backs.
Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, sent out a heartwarming message of support to Aiden Vazquez, a 10-year-old boy who refused to strike back at his bullies. Vazquez said it is “not the Jedi way.”
SHOUT OUT to Aiden Vazquez for his courage & wisdom in the face of adversity. I'm so proud of you for showing that you can be a Jedi in real life. Congratulations, Aiden- The Force will be with YOU… Always!!!
Your fan, mh https://t.co/jkWqrhMaC0

Once Hamill got wind of the news, he gave mad props to the young boy, assuring him that the Force is with him always and signed off with, “Your fan, MH.”
Vazquez needed stitches on his eyebrow after bullies punched him in the face and took his backpack. His mother took to Facebook after she said the elementary school wasn’t doing enough to protect her son.
You go, Aiden!
