Little Boy Is Waken Up By Darth Vader (His Dad) And How He Reacts Is Inspirational

Rob Lopez is a YouTube vlogger who posts videos every week showcasing his family life, complete with heartwarming messages. Earlier this summer, he decided to set up a special surprise for his two-year-old son, Sebastian, that included his son’s favorite “Star Wars” character: Darth Vader.

Lopez built his costume, got the very important written permission from his wife for the surprise, set up cameras in his little boy’s room, and put his plan into action. But the surprise quickly became an inspirational message on the compassionate nature of children. Now it’s gone viral.

      The moment of truth… Darth Vader wakes up the sleeping 2-year-old, Sebastian.

        Sebastian’s first reaction? Reach for the lightsaber by his bed, which is always at the ready. That’s courage.

              What this little boy showed is that violence is never the answer to any solution, Instead of fighting, he chose to show compassion and even shares his own belongings with this “Star Wars” villain.

                It’s such an inspiring message from a young child, and it serves to show us that violence is learned, not a natural way of life. I know it’s something we’ll all be thinking about for a while.
