The Most Significant Story

Topics: Commentary

Rob Hood writes the following for the American Daily:

I nominated the Terri Schiavo case as the most unforgettable story of the year. While talk radio hosts like Bill Bennett, Sean Hannity, and others gave this story full coverage for almost two weeks, the mainstream media took very little notice at all. Sure they reported on it but only for about five to ten minutes at the end of the regularly scheduled newscast. They treated it like it was nothing.
He continues to explain some of the reasons why the story was significant, keying off of the conduct of the the judge who preceeded over the case.

The story is significant if for no other reason than it emphasizes the necessity of alternate communication vehicles and news sources to cover issues and events that affect our lives. The battle for Terri Schiavo's life unmasked the hidden agenda and remarkable foothold of the culture of death, a worldview that judges the dignity of human life as a product of capability and function. It also showed us the potential of the blogosphere.

So many friends of Terri, bloggers, readers and commenters, fought for her life and stood in disbelief as she was publicly starved and dehydrated to death.

The battle lines are now drawn and it is time to continue the fight the led to the establishement of BlogsforTerri nearly a year ago. A good place to start is the Blogs4Life conference scheduled for Jan. 23 in Washington DC. Continue to visit Terrisfight.org and look for updates at BlogsforTerri.com in the near future.

The Schindler Family is who we should be remembering and sending our Blessings to every March, not the Schiavo Family.

God Bless.

True; for Mike, March might as well be the 4th of July- 'Independence Day.' I'll never forget him and his crocodile tears...

I know the author must have written every word from the heart. But the tribute to the "Schiavo's" shows just how much the Schindler family has been forgotten during this whole horrid story.

The Press gave all the focus to Schiavo and the Schindlers just didn't matter.

Just like in the court case, nothing the Schindler's said mattered.

God Bless.

Yeah, I remember Mike's loudmouth brother (almost a twin -shudder-) having the gall to get out there and whine about things to the media, as if his family was the one being mistreated. Pretty scuzzy bunch.
