Perhaps talking about honor or heroes, in certain environments, sounds like a stale and outdated claim. But honor can also be understood as an ethical and anthropological attitude of great significance, which takes on different forms as society evolves. We can witness a parade of models of honor from classical antiquity to the 21st century, which invite us not to banish this ethical disposition from our vocabulary and our lives. This is the point of view adopted by David Cerdá, doctor of philosophy and business manager, in this essay. 

Combining philosophical reflection with literature, cinema, politics and the effects of the pandemic, he offers us a current and attractive image of heroism and honor. Real characters such as Irena Sendler or Ignacio Echevarría, or fictional ones, such as the protagonists of A Few Good Men or Alone in the Face of DangerThe "protect and serve" motto is a free and autonomous acceptance of that version of honor and heroism, understood as a free and autonomous acceptance of the motto protect and serve.
