I was greatly inspired by the interview with Coleen Rowley. I'm the Executive Director of the Program for Torture Victims, a nonprofit organization that provides medical and psychological services to survivors of torture from more than 50 countries around the world. In some sense, all our clients are "whistle blowers:" they stood up against a repressive government or police state and said "Enough! This must stop." And they suffered horribly for exercising their conscience. What guides them and gives them strength? As one survivor explained: It is only through living for what is right that we will achieve a meaningful death."
