Articles Related to General:


A sweet child of God has passed into eternity, sent there by those who showed her only cruelty in her last days. She is now in the comforting arms of One who knows exactly what she's been through. For her there is no more pain, no more tears, no more injustice. May God give strength and hope to the Schindler family now. May their sacrifice and Terri's not be in vain. I for one will never forget how this struggle jarred me out of my disbelief that this kind of injustice could ever happen in America. I am hereafter resolved that no doctor, no judge, no one but the Creator has authority to dictate "quality of life." Laws need to change, hearts need to change, and the culture of death must be defeated.

May each and every one one of us who have worked to save Terri feel God's peace at this painful time.

God Bless.

Terri will not ever be forgotten, even though her earthly life has been taken by her husband-in-name-only and an arrogant, out-of-control judiciary that embraces the culture of death.
This is a very sad day for Terri and those who loved her and for our country that we had to sit idly by while she was killed and deprived of her "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

I have written about Terri's death, and included a picture and a poem that I found particularly moving. The painting is by Rosetti, the poem by Oscar Wilde. My website is http://thesanityranch.blogspot.com

Alas, an innocent woman will be missed on earth.

I posted about Terri on my blog this morning. May she receive the justice in death that she was denied in life.

I have written about Terri today and previously. Having special needs children I think helps me view it a little differently than others.
I pray desperately for the direction our country is going in.

I'm saddened by today's news. Both for Terri and for the Holy Father.

I wrote a post in reflecion of the comments made by Cardinal Keeler that you may be interested in reading.

Also, there are a few threads started at St Blogs Parish Hall about Terri. I invite you all to join the discussion there.

May God continue to bless your work here at Blogs for Terri

For some reason my trackback utility is not working correctly for pinging this website. So, I'm posting my webspace in the comments section instead.


I had prayed up until the last day that a miracle would happen, that Terri would be able to stay with us until she could die a natural death many years down the road...either through court/government intervention or through a miraculous awakening. I can say that her life touched mine in some very profound ways. She's made me consider many things in our culture and showed me how dignified a life can be regardless of circumstances. Her efforts to communicate with loved ones and hang on as long as she could have touched me deeply.

I will not give up the fight, no one should have to face the neglect and lack of justice Terri received.

My post "Defining Humanity Down" quotes a fellow blogger, the Curt Jester, and adds my own feelings on why it is Terri's life, not her death, that holds the greatest lesson for us all.

I have written about Terri in the past but wrote today about her passing at my blogsite:


It is a testament to her character and her parent's dedication that someone we never met had such a huge impact on our lives.

Terri Shindler-Schiavo (1963-2005)

I become silent in honor of Terri's death today. I am saddened and in sympathy with her family on this day of her untimely death.

This journey through life can be unfair and cruel, but in Terri's passing, she enters an eternity of peace, joy and the inheritance promised to her by our Lord. No matter what the circumstances of the ending of her life and the dying process, God sustained her throughout this process. Her precious spirit is forever free now and unbound by this contentious, earthly condition.

The dialogue surrounding her death will continue at the appropriate time. In her shyness, years of incapacity, and the inability of the judges and her spouse to show mercy to either Terri or to her family, Terriā€™s life and spirited fight has become her great legacy.

Terri, I pray for you, for your loving family, for Michael Schiavo and his second family, and for our nation. May God's perfect will be done. May God keep your family in his perfect peace and forgive the wrongs that have been done to you and to them. May the circumstances of your death spark a renewal of moral and ethical values in our country and in our world. May your death lead to wise understanding regardng the sustaining of life for many others who follow in your situation.

Terri, your loss is our loss

We all SOOO wanted to see you learn to talk and maybe even walk again, to see someone as beautiful as you overcome the mountainous hurdles you had, with the help you so completely deserved. God willing, I will get to meet you some day. Incredibly, Michael is the one who has the bigger loss today. You were murdered. But he is a murderer. He's lost it all.

Kiss Jesus for me, please.

I have many posts about Terri, but this is the one I posted after hearing that she passed


Posted by: WebNuts at March 31, 2005 10:03 PM

Who killed Terri Schiavo?

"Not I," said her husband. "I was only carrying out her wishes."

"Not I," said her husband's lawyer. "I was just doing my job."

"Not I," said the probate judge. "I was just following the law."

"Not I," said the Governor. "I don't have the power to save her, even if I am the supreme executive of the State of Florida under the Florida Constitution, and expressly empowered to protect the rights of all Florida citizens. That's just not enough."

"Not I," said our nation's chief executive. "I've done everything I can do. Who do you think I am, the President of the United States or something?"

"Not I," said the Congress. "After all, didn't we come back from vacation to pass a law?"

"Not I," said the federal judges. "We know a hot potato when we see one. No mere Act of Congress can force us to take action!"

"Not I," said the pastors and religious leaders who passed by without a word.

"Not I," said the doctors, the sheriff's police, the nurses and the hospital attendants. "We were just following orders."

"Certainly not me," said Terri Schiavo. "I wanted to live."

Some thoughts on Terri's legacy. I don't believe the push polls.

I have been posting about Terri, with the last post about her death.

I pray that Terri is resting peacefully and find comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain. I pray that she is smiling down on her family and that they find peace in her death knowing that she is no longer in pain.

Terri's parents and priest were with Terri up till ten minutes before she died, when they were ordered out of the room. This was reportedly so that Michael could perform "an assessment". They appealed to be allowed to remain with her and as they are so used to, were DENIED. They went out, Michael came in. They were allowed back in only after Terri was dead, ten minutes later. Michael was nowhere to be seen.

How typical.

She died at around 9AM eastern, that would be 6AM where I live.

May she rest in perfect peace.

I've written a lot over the past several weeks about Terri. "Terri's life and final days has stirred a nation" is a reflection on yesterday and how people should respond to her life.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the Schindler Family on the death of their daughter Terri Schiavo. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Schindler for providing an example of the boundless love that all parents should feel for their children. Let's hope that the law that facilitated Terri's murder by starvation will be changed!
