What Would Terri Schiavo Think?
Will the Terri Schiavo case ever go away? This week, Terri's parents, Mary and Robert Schindler, and her husband Michael have separate books coming out, and apparently the Schindlers are still out to crucify Michael Schiavo. Have they learned nothing from the fact that the autopsy showed their daughter's brain had atrophied to about half its original size? She was brain dead, just like the doctors tried to tell them. Why they persist in thinking it would have been better to keep her poor body hooked up to those machines for years is beyond me.
Jack thinks Michael Schiavo is a hero for never giving up, and I myself certainly respect Michael's commitment. He endured an enormous amount of ill will and public scorn for trying to fulfill his wife's wishes, and he had to stand up to the United States Congress, the Governor of Florida and the President of the United States before Terri was finally allowed to rest in peace.
May all who loved her (on both sides) find some peace in their own lives and put the bitterness behind them. It's time to celebrate Terri's memory. Her death has been debated enough.
