@uyakon @IronMan @SteveRogers As I see it, the most important quality of a superhero is their character. And as I continue to learn more about what everyone in #HeroesResist is doing, the more impressed I am.
You guys are heroes/heroines in real life, not just in the movies. May you inspire many more to follow your lead.
@IronMan Mr. Stark, sir, it’s an honor.
I am a huge MCU geek. Started watching when the first Avengers movie was in theaters, back in 2012. And I was hooked.
I’ll admit it: It took me a while to warm up to you. @SteveRogers was my favorite for the longest time lol. But as Iron Man 3 progressed (which I’ve still only seen part of; gotta get on that) followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming, Infinity War, and especially Endgame, I was like: OK, this guy really is a hero.

I'm finding John Legend's new song, Conversations in the Dark, to be just the thing for my PTSD: https://youtu.be/qUD2GxTeVcI A new friend, who has also experienced some trauma in the past, said that this song was "like a warm hug." 🤗
#introduction Hello, and welcome! I am a TCK (Third Culture Kid). My life experiences range all the way from living in a thatched-roof hut in the jungle, to a high-paying tech career in California.
Recently, I have come full circle, and realized that the people of the tribal village I grew up in, in the South American jungle, remain some of the best friends I ever had. My username, Uyakon, is taken from their language. It means "little brother."

Mastodon is an ethically-designed, open-source microblogging platform consisting of a network of independent servers that talk to each other (the "fediverse"). It can be thought of as an alternative to Twitter, for example. This particular server focuses on two things: First, fighting oppression, exploitation, abuse and victimization, whether of humans, plants, animals, or the planet itself. Second, helping people heal from any of the above that they have experienced or witnessed.
