Edward Snowden

"I'm neither traitor nor hero," Edward Snowden. "I'm an American."

An American who believes a certain way makes it known, acts on it and the stand is made. Often, a person's stand brings unfavorable consequences.

An American would stay and defend his/her stand, not flee to China.

This is a land, United States, where differences exist.

Perhaps, a person is called traitor, hero and a host of other names due to his/her stand. Still, it goes-along with taking a stand.

"I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded," Snowden said.

Snowden, 29, leaked secret information about NSA's domestic surveillance programs to the media.

Today's world is a place, foreign and domestic, where you're recorded almost everywhere. There're few places a recording, spying or listening device isn't.

Without the devices, terrorists, murderers and other bad elements wouldn't have been captured.

Still, Snowden didn't destroy the information, but the former NSA contractor leaked it.

The result of Snowden's hands on the stolen information resulted in chaos.

Snowden departed the United States, left behind everything that was near and dear to him.

Snowden announced that he'd fight extradition back to the United States.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
