Whispers, Whispers (Cont'd)...


President Bush, a little earlier:
Today millions of Americans are saddened by the death of Terri Schaivo. Laura and I extend our condolences to Terri Schaivo's families. I appreciate the example of grace and dignity they have displayed at a difficult time. I urge all those who honor Terri Schaivo to continue to work to build a culture of life, where all Americans are welcomed and valued and protected, especially those who live at the mercy of others. The essence of civilization is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak. In cases where there are serious doubts and questions, the presumption should be in the favor of life....

Now THIS (last paragraph) is bad.

Should we not, as people, even in times of great stress, fight the urge to deny our duties as, well, people?

At least they got to view the body...


May Spirit touch (and heal) the hearts of all involved.
