Where is King Solomon when you need him?? I don't pretend to know what the "right " thing to do in this situation. I can undestand both sides position. One side says they are for Liberty and Terry Schiavo has expressed to several people that she would not want to live like this. On the other side is her parents who cling to the hope that she will get better. The hard part to reconcile is the fact she isn't on life support and several of her care takers report that she can speak. Personally this threw me. I didn't know this. And 2 therapist said they were prevented from doing therapy with Terry by her husband. Things like putting objects in her hand for her to squeeze to strengthen her hands. This too disturbed me a bit. And starving her is barbaric. Its an awful way to die. Why not overdose her with morphine or something and let her slip away peacefully. As a Mom and a Sister I can empathise with the families heartache. As a parent you cry over scraped knees and hurt feelings. I cannot imagine the horror of knowing your child is suffering unimaginably and there is nothing you can do to eleviate it. I just find it all incredibly sad and just needed to vent and send a prayer to a young woman many miles away and hope her journey is swift and as painless as possible. Maybe both sides could stop for a minute and realise this is a person we're speaking of not some charactor on a program. And treat Terry and the situation with the dignity it deserves. I'm sorry I couldn't express it as eloquently as I feel it in my heart but I needed to say "God Bless you, Terry."
