I really did. I just saw the new trailer for Star Wars.

I love Star Wars.  Everything you need to know about life is contained in these movies. 

I am part of a web startup called THE LATEST.  We have been blessed to be helped by many student interns, including many from other countries.  Of these, several come from Europe.

The Europeans are a little different than the Americans.

When I pose a challenge to them, they look a little scared, like whatever I just asked they think can't possibly be done in the time allotted. 

They say they will "try."

Every time I hear this, I immediately call "time out" and gather everyone within earshot around the nearest laptop.  I type in "YouTube."

The Americans start chuckling, they know exactly what's coming next, even if they've never seen me do this before.

In a second or two, we're all watching Yoda tell Luke Skywalker, "There is no try, only do."

The Europeans, upon seeing this, seem even more confused.  The Americans all laugh out loud.

But after a while, the Force grows stronger within the European students.  They learn that they really CAN do amazing things.  They can and they do. 

We are approaching a very hard deadline.  Much must be done in the weeks ahead.  I now call upon all Jedi Knights -- European, Asian, American and South American -- did I leave anyone out? -- to rise to the occasion. 

May the Force be with us.
