National Call For Action: Come to Woodside Now - Go To Washington Now

Topics: Action Items

A reader has emailed in a request that we pass this around.

Terri is about to die. Many are now feeling very frustrated and helpless about what is happening. Let's let the world know how we feel about what our system of injustice has done and is doing to an innocent woman.

ACTION:

Every church, synagogue, congregation, parish, and organization that affirms life, IMMEDIATELY send 4 people to represent them to the people of the world.

Send 2 people to Florida and 2 people to Washington.

In Florida at the Hospice. In Washington in the Mall.

Any others who's conscience, spirit and love of life moves them may
freely join either one.

Those who are local, perform the following vigil in each capital city
of every state and any other city around the world that wants to join us.

Light 12 candles, keep them lit. Light them today: March 24th.
At sunset each day, pour a single cup of water onto the ground to symbolize the water that Terri cannot have, and
snuff out a single candle, another day of Terri's life.

We have to provide a very visual image of what is happening here to the whole world. As Terri's mother Mary said, "We have to stop this madness,now."

Please do this and spread the word.

I encourage those who cannot travel to do some sort of display in support of Terri, even within their own homes. Light your own candle and pray. Thank you.

A candle in the window of everyone that is praying for Terri would be a wonderful way to show the world how many of us are out there

Just wanted to point out the obvious, that stem cell therapy could save Terri, although it is probably her only chance.

Obvious? How could stem cell therapy save her from starvation? Your eyes are blind, I'll pray for logic.

I feel for the parents of Terri, however, I believe we are missing the obvious. If the medical field was going to be able to help Terri recover, don't you think they would have done so by now? She has been in this state for 15 years. Secondly, we need to ask ourselves this question..... how long would we want to be keep biologically alive with now hope of recovery, and as parents, how long would we want our chilren to suffer. This is a horrible choice to make, and my prayers are with both Terri's parents and her husband.
