As the anniversary of Terri Schindler Schiavo's death arrives each year, I'm amazed by how much I still struggle with the fact that America tormented a disabled woman and her beautiful family unto death.
Do I really live in a country so cruel?
How many other families are so mistreated that we never hear of?
When animals can't be starved & dehydrated without someone going to jail ~ why was Terri given a death sentence and tortured in our "civilized" society?
Tonight will be a beautiful Gala in Terri's memory to raise awareness about brain injury and how much more can be done to support the dignity of patients & families fighting for their loved one's recovery.
I can't make this Gala but a friend & I have been working to enlist Terri's friends and supporters to share their photos, videos and love for this valiant woman.
If you are on Facebook, check out Terri Schindler-Schiavo Death Watch 2005 and "like" it.
Share your memories and love for our friend Terri.
May we never forget and may we all be vigilant to fight for the lives of our family members in an increasingly hostile climate.
