Walking through Disneyland a few weeks ago, we came upon a long line of little girls, waiting anxiously to meet their favorite princess and get their photo taken. They were all jumping up and down in line, craning their necks for a better look. Their favorite princesses from books and movies were suddenly real and they could barely contain their excitement.
A few hours later, a much older and bigger girl was jumping up and down and practically squealing in delight. Darth Vader had just come out to battle little boys and girls learning how to fight the dark side. I was on the sidelines, wishing I was still young enough to participate.
