Steve was always real good at the speeches.
Well. Sixteen years ago I was in college in New York. My sister was still in high school but Tuesdays were a late start for her. I remember I made her stay home and we went up onto the roof of the building with some neighbours and stared down towards Manhattan listening to the news on someone's radio. I remember wishing my dad was still alive because he'd know what to say.
I worked on the Ground Zero planning committee for a while, later. I've been to Gitmo. I know kids serving in the same parts of Afghanistan as their dads did and kids who never came home. It's been sixteen years and I still don't know what to say. Mostly I just feel really old and really tired. The only solution I got is just to be good to each other. Be brave enough to be kind. And come round for drinks tonight if you want, promise I'm done trying to be inspirational.
That's all. Cap out.
There's a room for you at the Avengers place. Your lab's in the basement, we got a pool, a grill and a bouncy castle, and way too many pets.
