My Hero Is Steve Rogers

It's about time I did another post, so I thought I'd do one while Fallon and Savanna take a break and get their own posts ready. :) Anyway, I'm here to talk about my favorite Avenger (and all-time hero), Captain America. His real name, though, is Steve Rogers.

Steve Rogers was born sickly and small and he stayed that way as he grew up. His parents both died during WWI and he's stuck with his best buddy Bucky since, wanting to make a difference. WWII has come and because of his sickness, Steve is rejected from the army, but he kept trying. He had the heart and courage that the army needed, that the country needed, but frail body was no match for common bullies in the street.

But he never gave up. 

He was later chosen to become the first super soldier for America's troops by Dr Erskine, who was working with Col Phillips in making a super army to battle the Germans. Unlike everyone else, Erskine saw past the skinny frame and saw a huge, self-sacrificing, courageous heart. All that Steve needed was a body to match that spirit. "Maybe all we need now is a little guy," the doctor had said. The serum that would make his body bigger also effected other things inside him. "Good becomes great. Evil becomes worse." Steve had been chosen for the good in him. And the good in him became bigger right along with his body.  Even as he went on to be an amazing hero, Steve remained a good man. His humbleness remained in tact and his self-sacrifice saved millions of lives on and off the battlefield. There was no better choice for America's star spangled hero.
This is why Steve Rogers is my one of my biggest heroes. He had the qualities of being a hero before he was given the serum and before he made into the army. He fought the fight there in daily life. And than afterwards, he remained humble throughout all the fame and glory. When his biggest enemy asked him, "So, what made you so special?" His response was a simple, "Nothin'. I'm just a kid from Brooklyn." *slow clap* What more do you need in a hero?!?! Can I hear an 'amen' from Fallon? *wink*

I highly recommend watching Captain America: The First Avenger. If you haven't seen it, than stop what you are doing and go watch it as soon as possible! Fallon and I couldn't recommend it more!

"Whatever happens, stay who you are. Not just a soldier but a good man."
