7. I hope it's not too late, This is where I say Edward Snowden is a hero

so are the NSA whistelblowers who passed before however, he took the bravest step, by actually taking documents to share with the public. Greenwald says he got a carefully organized notebook, with tabs in it, of all the information Snowden thought could help, and was told to publish what he, as a journalist, thought was necessary to warn the public.

I stand in awe. We've all been pulling emergency cords for years, and the whisteblowers before him, who thought they'd ruined their lives for nothing (other than their conscience) are in the right place to support him. But it was Snowden who hit the main switch.

Can you imagine being Edward Snowden right now? I would be tripping my brains out at the enormity of what I'd done, the enormity of firing such a lethal shot to a massive, angry monster.

People and governments all over the world need to stop this train right now. It better not be too late.
