Blogsforterri has been busy preparing for our next phase in the fight to increase awareness to the fact that 'quality of life' has absolutely nothing to do with the 'value of life,' and that loving care, nutrition, and hydration are indeed the most basic of human needs that must be provided for all of us until the very moment of our natural death.
In the process of working to increase awareness to such 'value of life' issues, BlogsforTerri and it's daughter and sister blogsites intend to address the many mistakes made by all sides that were involved in the conflict over whether Terri should be allowed to live out her natural life or have it ended by judicial fiat.
By looking at the mistakes, actions, and inactions that played a part in Terri's death, we hope to help all of us better understand how and to communicate the gravity of ending a human life by other than the hand of God.
This new mission of BlogsforTerri will focus on the discovery, analysis, and communication of 'value of life' issues related to Terri's life and death, while avoiding temptation for finding fault, pointing blame, or being overly critical of any individual(s), groups, or organizations.
Our intention is to be more tolerant of our adversaries than our adversaries are of us, and to convince the convincible, while letting those that are blind to the sacredness and mystery of the life God has given us, or be unwilling to attempt to understand the importance of not intervening in the process of natural death, rest in peace wherever and however they can find it.
The lessons that can and should be learned from Terri's life and Terri's death, are not going to be ignored, because we intend to make sure that they are made known and that they are heeded.
You will begin to notice the start of the new phase during the next two weeks.
