Funny you mentioned that, as it's the exact example I was thinking of.

Would everyone be making Reddit cry-faces for a deserter who abandoned his post and sworn oath? Maybe his squad-mates needed him in a dire time, but it was stressful and frightening! I guess it wasn't the right decision, but you have to consider his mental state when he went AWOL, not just brand him a coward and deserter. Unless you were there, under fire, you can't judge.


She didn't have the guts to buckle down and pull through a hard time.
She didn't have the decency and respect to walk away.
