The whistleblower’s sacrifice

This weekend, we learned about the whistleblower Edward Snowden, who revealed to the world the National Security Agency’s real dealings. It’s scary to think that someone like him would risk his comfortable life to share the truth with his country about its government. He gave up his lucrative career, a beautiful home in Hawaii, his partner, and his family to tell the public about what the NSA was doing behind the scenes, making the statement that he would not condone it. While what he did was noble, I’d never be able to do what he did and give up everything for the sake of my country knowing “the truth.” I can’t imagine never coming home again.
