Princess Leia

She was probably my first innocent crush, as a nine-year-old boy during that summer of 1977. I was swept up in Star Wars mania back then, as we all were, having seen the movie twice, read the novelization, and received a ton of merchandised toys that Christmas. Though I haven’t been a fan of the franchise since 1983, Luke, Leia, Han, Ben, the droids and Darth Vader are part of some of the fondest pre-adolescent memories I have.

Rest in peace, princess.

[Shocked that 2016 has claimed another part of my youth …]
