Over the course of the Episodes 4, 5, and 6, Luke is transformed by his Jedi Master training from an impetuous, immature, scared teenager who knows not his own powers - to a calm, centered, powerful, insightful man who acts with clarity and intention, overcomes his greatest fears with compassion and strength, and plays a powerful role in his own father's resurrection from the Dark Side.

America Via Erica: Speech Below is the video and transcript of the Coxsackie-Athens HS Class of 2010 valedictory speech that went viral on the web, thus proclaiming me as the 'valedictorian who spoke out against schooling.' Here I Stand Erica GoldsonJune 25, 2010 There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, "If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, "Ten years." The student then said, "But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast - How long then?"
