They all have their justifications. Lennie James. Life Good You People.
A villain can be stylish, and his actions don't have to be explained. Heroes are boring in comparison, even anti-heroes, as there's always a justification for their bad actions. Stylish Villain Bad Boring. I've always seen first responders as unsung heroes and very special people because, when everyone else is running away from danger, they run into it. Dwayne Johnson.

People Special Everyone Always. The best thing I did was to choose the right heroes. Warren Buffett. Best Choose Right Did Thing. I never appreciated 'positive heroes' in literature. They are almost always cliches, copies of copies, until the model is exhausted. I prefer perplexity, doubt, uncertainty, not just because it provides a more 'productive' literary raw material, but because that is the way we humans really are.

Day Police Think Police Officers. But it also came from frustration with the myopic view taken by many Americans about killing enemy combatants: that mounting tallies of enemy dead signify heroism. Yet, with US army chaplain Emil Kapaun, a different heroism has been applauded, and Americans have recognized, refreshingly, that his less bellicose and more humble actions are meritorious and honorable.
The Kansas-born priest chose to remain in the fighting at Unsan to tend wounded comrades amid hand-to-hand combat, while Chinese soldiers overran the position and negotiated a safe surrender. Kapaun carried wounded men during the march to a prisoner of war camp, where he looked after them until he died from dysentery and pneumonia, six months later. Hearing of Kapaun's courage and humanity reminded me of a different type of valor, one that inspired me to join the British army in , at the back end of its involvement in the Balkans.
It reminded me of the images on the news of women and children protectively shepherded by British troops as part of the United Nations peacekeeper force. What constitutes true heroism and bravery is a question to which I'm unqualified to offer an unequivocal answer, but I will say that, more often than not, America's present take on heroism appears radically warped. A fixation with sports stars, celebrities and talent show participants clouds the heroic ideal, and among military personnel, this leaves little chance to be recognized for other, more subtle types of heroism.
Society tends to assume a condescending attitude when it comes to the tenacity and bravery displayed by single mothers, inner-city school teachers and social workers; and many men and women in war serve with the same quiet strength.
Not only is there a narrow and unhealthy obsession with the view of soldiers as violent heroes, but the trend of labeling them "warriors" signifies a muddled notion of what a soldier can be. Most worryingly, the label glosses over the seamier side of soldiering and war — made all the easier when a volunteer army enables the population to look the other way, or only to pay attention to the smart young soldiers getting valorous medals pinned to their chests.
There are aspects of my soldiering of which I'm proud, but I'm fully aware that the experience also included soul-sucking wretchedness.
