When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree by the river of truth and tell the whole world "No, you move." I've always believed that all you need is one man to make a difference, to stand up when others are told to sit down, to speak loudly for those who have no voice and to fight the good fight. As long as freedom may be threatened, Captain America must follow his destiny wherever it may lead. #marvel
