National Whistleblowers Day
Ten heroes honored
Today is the day we honor true heroes of humanity.
They’re the people who risk it all to bring the truth corrupt government and corporate officials don’t want us to know.
Ten heroes whose stories you should know.
“When you’re confronted with an ethical challenge, you’re either going to rise to the occasion and try to stop the behavior or you’re going to rationalize it and stay silent.”
The overwhelming majority of people choose the latter.
Very often whistleblowers pay a terrible personal price for their work.
Their courage in the face of danger is equal to any courageous act we routinely celebrate.
