Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art.
The unsung heroes.
That was one of the most horrifying, painful, beautiful parts of the movie. So many of them weren’t prepared, so many were administrators who had no clue that the STRIKE teams had turned, let alone that a killing machine like the Winter Soldier was on the loose.
So many of them died.
And yet none of them hesitated. Despite the propaganda Pierce had unleashed, despite their orders, despite everything, they still responded. Their sacrifice, their heroism - they gave the last full measure of devotion, and I can’t imagine that Steve wouldn’t attend the memorial service, even if he had to use a wheelchair or a cane because his own wounds hadn’t finished healing.
"Captain’s orders" indeed.
without these people, there IS no Captain America.

-You gonna drag this *bleep* on the top of the mountain?
I was there the day the strength of Men failed…

Roger Williams, 1643- Early proponent for freedom of religion, and thus an early American Rebel. It’s been a while since I read anything about him - I vaguely remember a kids’ missionary biography on Williams with a lot of Indian martyrs and scalpings and such?
