In a galaxy far, far away (West Palm Beach) there is a 7-year-old boy named Brady who is battling a blood disorder. More than anything in the universe, he wanted to become Jedi Brady. Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens delivered the Holocron to Brady – it had secret plans and he had to keep it safe. The Empire was looking for the Holocron and Brady needed to deliver it to the Jedi Temple.
A few days later, Brady was escorted in a West Palm Beach Police Department SWAT truck to the Jedi Temple which was hidden deep within the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. He delivered the Holocron and underwent advanced Jedi training. There was light saber combat choreography with the Jedi knights, and when the force was strong enough, Brady even levitated bricks. Once he completed training, he was deemed ready for knighting. Master Jedi Brown anointed him an official Jedi Knight and presented him with a medal of honor. Right at that moment, R2-D2 arrived with the ominous news that Darth Vader was invading CityPlace in West Palm Beach to look for the Holocron.
Jedi Brady was rushed away in the SWAT truck to an epic battle between good and evil. The battle was fought long and hard, and Jedi Brady was victorious. Darth Vader was overpowered, the Holocron was safely returned to the rebel fighters, the Death Star was destroyed and the Empire was defeated. The crowd cheered with relief and pride for their West Palm Beach Jedi Knight. In a ceremony following the battle, a police sergeant and the mayor were there to present Jedi Knight Brady with the key to the city. #JediBradySavesWPB
Brady’s mother said, “I don’t have words really. I knew it was going to be amazing but feeling the love and support is really what warmed my heart as a parent.”
