Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

This Woman Knows Terri Schiavo's Plight

The woman to whom the title of this post refers is Kate Adamson. Please read the article to which I have linked by clicking on the title to this post or by clicking here.

Some excerpts from the article for your edification:

. . . Like Terri, the doctors felt that Kate was someone who should not or could not be saved. Kate suffered a catastrophic brain stem stroke and was dependent on a feeding tube for all her nourishment. Kate had her feeding tube turned off for over a week. . .

. . . "I have a unique understanding of what Terri is feeling. I could feel everything that the doctors did to me, and I could do nothing. I was at the complete mercy of others, and they couldn't hear me." -- Kate Adamson

[Emphasis mine]

Kate Adamson, "by request of the Schindler family, has launched a campaign to save Terri Schiavo from starvation."

God bless Kate Adamson, but most of all, may God bless and protect Terri Schiavo from those who would make her die of thirst and starvation.

(h/t Blogs for Terri)

Father Rob Johansen has an excellent idea on his blog Thrown Back. He suggests that we Fast for Terri! :

As this is a Friday in Lent, when we are called to fast and abstinence, I can't think of a better day on which to start.

To paraphrase Our Lord, some victories can only be won through fasting and prayer.

Hear, hear! Thank you Father Johansen.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
