You know what keeps going through my mind regarding Terri Schiavo? I’ve stopped thinking about the legal maneuverings, because I honestly don’t see any happy ending for this story.
What I keep thinking about is Terri’s mom standing by her daughter’s bed, wanting to cradle her in her arms the way she probably did when Terri was a tiny baby only minutes old. Feeling like a failure because she wasn’t able to protect the little girl she brought into this twisted world.
While there’s not a whole lot anyone can do for Terri anymore (besides pray that she won’t suffer too terribly much longer), I hope everyone will focus their prayers on the Schindlers and somehow let them know that they fought the good fight, that they did fine by their daughter despite the outcome.
