IMBALANCED #HEROICS

When we read of the heroics [academic, scientific, military, religious, physical...whatever] of "great men", of "heroes", what we are not told are the details of their neglect of their families and filial obligations, their brutal insensitivity to the suffering present all around them giving them their focus on their chosen areas, sometimes even crass ingratitude to those they owed... etc. Their outstanding success serves to hide their human failures. 

But we ought not to forget this and over-rate these heroes, nor condemn to ignominy those that balanced their limited time and resources across a canvass of what they regarded as their immediate and pressing moral obligations. 

Increasingly I find that being judgmental is intellectually dishonest.
