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.
- Cosette evoked the dawn of love. (Victor Hugo, Les Misérables) - Above all these virtues put on love, which binds them together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3:14) - And remember the truth that once was spoken: to love another person is to see the face of God. (Alain Boublil & Herbert Kretzmer, Les Misérables) -
"We all in here because we took a wrong turn going to church."

Take care, my brave son. Or you will bleed for a girl who’ll never be yours.
