Incredible Scenes of a California Wildfire
On May 30th, a wildfire started in California’s Angeles National Forest, just a short distance north of Los Angeles. The fire was pushed by dry, erratic winds that destroyed at least six homes near Lake Hughes and damaged many more. The 32,000-acre wildfire had more than 2,000 firefighters working in hot, dry conditions. Some wildfires take weeks until they are 100% contained.

LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a cop and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.
I love this post.
