Captain America: Civil War

The Avengers have really captured the group superhero fighting!!

The storyline was great, the action was even better.

In this installment of the Captain America we begin with the team at odds over signing a document that would prevent the from acting on impulses to fight evil. This comes about when innocent civilians end up dying.

 

Okay about his…hello how many innocent lives have been lost in the last ten movies the Marvel? Its only now an issue when a prominent figure happens to die…..

Adding to this is the realization that Buckey is alive and still a threat…or is he?

The Captain feels an obligation to keep his friend safe and this in turn splits the Avengers….and a civil war ensues!!

All that aside..we meet some new crime fighting heroes!!! Like Black Panther and Spiderman. Yes Spiderman is back….and he’s a different character!! A younger kid that is reminiscent of Tony Stark….

Its a great movie!!!

 

Remembrance…..

Yesterday was a hard day of remembrance for all of America. It reminded us that we too are subject to acts of war.

Every year I feel it’s important to revisit my day…that day…September 11th.

I was in college and had skipped class, yet again….

I flipped on my small television to find the same news coverage on every channel. It was something about a bombing and I at first thought it was the Sears tower. Then I was like, no this is some kind of sci fi prank….

Prank was on me. It was real. I called my best friend who was still sleeping and woke her up. We watched the live coverage of Katie Couric on the streets of the New York. We watched as people jumped to their death to avoid being smashed to smitherins by collapsing floors above them.

It was horrible.

Classes were cancelled and it seemed that everyone knew someone that was in New York…that whole 5 degrees of separation is real.

Now the world is a mess. More terrorist attacks on smaller scales, but just as powerful with promoting fear and hate.

We can overcome this! We are Americans! We are all different, but yet united. That’s what sets us apart from the rest of the world!!

So never forget! Never forget the lives that were lost, the men and woman firefighters, civilians, police, guards, office workers, bankers, secratatries…..never forget….
