Which was the real secret of what Bucky was. The official story said he was a symbol to counter the rise of the Hitler Youth. And there was some truth to that, but like all things in war, there was a darker truth underneath.

That’s the sort of predator I am. A conflicted one, a deadly one, one alone… And you can’t change my nature.
We all burn. We burn in fire. We burn in blood. We burn in dreams. And it never ends. Dreams never end. You would not want them to. Not if it means forgetting. You can never forget. You, who are all that is left. So, remember: we are born in fire, again, and again. You would live it all, again. No matter how much it hurts. When it hurts you knnow you are alive. And you know that as long as you live, they live. And when you die, they die.
