Young Jedi

Five-year-old Jamari Hall brandishes a lightsaber during Stars Wars day in the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. Jamari, who has chronic lung disease, joined other Children’s Center and Harriet Lane Clinic patients to dance and high-five with R2-D2, Jedi Masters, stormtroopers, a biker scout and an X-Wing pilot. The Feb. 3 event, made possible by local volunteers and the Star Wars: Force for Change platform of Lucasfilm, was therapeutic as well as fun, says Patrice Brylske, director of child life for The Johns Hopkins Hospital: “Children who haven’t gotten out of bed in days were motivated to come downstairs to interact with the Star Wars characters.” Watch a video about Star Wars characters’ visit to the Children’s Center:  bit.ly/starwarshopkins.
