Terri Schiavo Dies...

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by atrkyhntr, Mar 31, 2005.

  1. I hope she served as a lesson to us all and a living will is is all our futures...
    May she rest in peace... She is in God's hands now....GOD BLESS
     
  2. amen to that brother......rest in peace Terri
     

  3. That is absolutely right. This was a perfect example of what can go wrong without a living will.

    May she finally rest in peace. Unfortunately the fighting will go on for quite some time now with rights to the body, and who knows what.

    It's a bad siutation & in my opinon no matter what side of the fence you are/were on, HER PARENTS HAD THRE RIGHT TO BE THERE IN THE ROOM FOR THE FINAL MOMENTS OF HER LIFE.

    From the real deep not so public stuff I've read/heard her father was no saint, just as her husband was no saint either, but I think it was a shame that her husband & his attorneys were able to keep the parent out for the final few hours.

    you know I did not follow this much at all, but did get tired of hearing about it. sad for sure, but how many other folks are in the same place??? Lots. I mean was this really needed to be shown over an over? I know many will say yes it did, but did it really? I know I have no different view of anything now than before. I know if I was in that position, I would feel better to be gone that alive on a machine. Also, Why was there a need to show how she was and then how she is/was now? I would rather not have all this attention. Just me though. don't think I am a bad guy. :rolleyes:

    God rest her soul and i hope that all of her family members can find peace in their lives.
     
  11. It did need to be shown over and over because I am sure nationwide one person somewhere after each showing made a living will and kept their family from the same turture... sometimes we suffer for a better good...
    The husband said he wanted her to have peace and quiet in herdying moments and the parents were always argumentive in the last few days... It was his choice and one I hope I would never have to make...

    Another good point here is that you don't have to be old to need a living will. Everyone, young and old, that knows what they want should get it in writing.
     
  13. Very well said Mellon.

    Alot of people sticking their noses in a very private matter . That's my take on it. Doesn't matter what side you were on , it was a private matter for the family and didn't nor should it have involved the people you saw yelling and bickering on the TV set. God rest her soul, and for some of those others, they said alot that cut deep into other people just for their own personal gains or for their organizations gains. They all lost the true meaning as to what this was all about. Some poor womans death. THE CATKING

    Fishman Catch bait???

    Anyone here a Maddox fan? If you are you're in for a laugh. If you don't know who Maddox is you don't need to know ;)

    Or if you're a critic you'll be offended.

    Sorry for the vagueness it's an "inside" thing :D
     
  16. I recieved this in email yesterday. States my feelings pretty well!


    I, _________________________ (fill in the blank), being of sound mind
    and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial
    means.

    Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of
    peckerwood politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their
    lives depended on it.

    If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to sit up and ask
    for a cold beer, it should be presumed that I won't ever get better.
    When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my spouse,
    children and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes
    and call it a day.

    Under no circumstances shall the members of the Legislature enact a
    special law to keep me on life-support machinery. It is my wish that
    these boneheads mind their own damn business, and pay attention
    instead to the health, education and future of the millions of
    Americans who aren't in a permanent coma.

    Under no circumstances shall any politicians butt into this case.

    I don't care how many fundamentalist votes they're trying to scrounge
    for their run for the presidency in 2008,it is my wish that they play
    politics with someone else's life and leave me alone to die in peace.

    I couldn't care less if a hundred religious zealots send e-mails to
    legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I don't know
    these people, and I certainly haven't authorized them to preach and
    crusade on my behalf. They should mind their own business too.

    If any of my family goes against my wishes and turns my case into a
    political cause, I hereby promise to come back from the grave and
    make his or her existence a living hell.
