Captain America means quite a bit to me. No, it's not because he is the star-spangled man and represents freedom and everything America. It's because of why he fights. Perfect example for our day and age is the movie Captain America: The First Avenger, in the beginning of this movie we see Steve Rodgers, a sickly scrawny image of a man trying to do what he feels he should do and go fight for his country to defend the innocent. But sadly, our soon-to-be hero is denied due to his stature, which is something I relate to entirely. All my life I've heard the same echoed words, you're too short to do anything, you're not strong or big enough. Every time I heard this it took another shot at my heart. But I saw Steve's determination in the movie, the amazing scene outside the movie theater in the fight with that jerk who was disturbing the movie. Steve refused to back down, even in the face of defeat he refused and said no. Let me now skip ahead to Steve's future, in an epic fight against Thanos, when one man looked eye to Thanos himself and said "As long as ONE MAN stands against you, Thanos, you'll never be able to claim victory" those words have got to be the most badass thing said. I mean Cap had no idea if he was going to live or die in this fight, he just knew he had to try and and never back down. This is the way I live, to keep fighting and to never back down from any situation. I look up to Captain America as my idol, someone to base my view of life on. He teaches that even those scrawny kids like me, can look upon the face of death and say No, I will not quit, I will NEVER back down from any fight so as long as the innocent are at danger. He has taught me to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves, and stop evil and villainy at all costs! Captain America I thank you for everything, for being that symbol of hope. For showing determination and refusing to back down. I wish I could say more of what Captain America means, but I don't think I have enough space or time to fill out all the wonderous and powerful things that Cap has done.
