First soldiers risk their lives for the values of their homeland / fatherland (patrie) for example freedom of speech, girls education, or religious beliefs. They also follow political agendas for example geopolitical issues like control over oil or nuclear power in the Middle East or to gain more territories like Russian forces in Ukraine.
We can say it’s the same for journalists who risk their lives when they go to war zones where they could die to tell us the truth about the horros of war, they also fight for a vision.
But soldiers follow orders whereas / while journalists sometimes criticize the origin of wars and denounce governments’ political agendas.

For me, Malala is a heroine because she fights for her opinion like some of my heroes like Martin Luther King Jr., Tupac… She was attacked by gangsters but she continues to fight for the girls in Pakistan. Yes, she’s a heroine like Captain Sully or Wesley Autrey. I think she’s powerful with her voice. She continues to make interviews in the UK. In the beginning she said her rights and she knows them.
