Captain America and Death

I recently shared the newest Captain America: Civil War trailer released today (3/10) via a Facebook post simply titled: “Dear God.”

Yes, I’m excited about the film, but it made me think of myself as a child. It appears in retrospect I was a morbid and exaggerated child.

I used recite my evening prayers every night religiously (my Mom had successfully etched them into my mind as a child), and I would run the Catholic gamut: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and O My Jesus; and then I would add an additional personalized prayer. I know, lots of praying.

I’d wish well for friends and family, ask for good things to come my way… the typical stuff. Then– Then I’d add some bizarre things.

If a big movie event or video game release was imminent, I would pray to remain alive long enough to witness the said media experience.

And the funny thing is the thought process continued well after my consistent prayer era.  Often I would think to myself before the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2008 for example, about how I hope to be alive long enough to play this game.

Some crazy thoughts for something that in the end… is digital code; ones and zeroes.

Hey, at least I prayed for my family, right?
