In the end this act says more about Michael Schiavo and his motives then anything else anybody has either said or done up until now. For this final act labels the entire episode as what it really is…basically the action of a hate-filled and spiteful human being named Michael Schiavo.
This man took Terri Schiavo’s doctor to court suing him for a million dollars with the stated purpose of using the money to care for Terri…then shortly after receiving it decided that Terri claimed she would never have wanted to live in a ‘vegetative’ state and tried to have her feeding tube disconnected BEFORE ALL THE MONEY WAS USED UP ON HER CARE. Well you know what, he should have turned around and been forced to give that doctor back his money then.
Let’s make no mistake about this, the ONLY reason Terri Schiavo remained alive as long as she did was because her parents fought this selfish and greedy man tooth and nail. AND we have to give credit where credit is due here as Terri’s family, including her brother and sister, fought a hell of a fight right up until the final agonizing hours. They did what they could and acted honorably right up until the end. Actually the fact that they fought so hard had at least one benefit. It stopped that Michael Schiavo from profiting off his wife’s illness, as he surely would have walked away with a cool million of that settlement to piss away on himself if they had said and done nothing…
So I thank GOD for that one mercy.
Thus there is a small measure of justice in this world, little comfort as that might be to Terri’s parents.
Nevertheless, Michael Schiavo got his pound of flesh from Terri’s parents for not allowing him access to that money, which is all spent now on Terri’s care as it should have been. Michael Schiavo got his revenge by being allowed to starve their daughter to death and now cremate her body. So it appears that even in death, her parents couldn’t have this unfortunate daughter back. Ultimately however, we must understand, there wasn’t much that would have changed the final outcome here. Since nothing was going to stop this greedy and selfish man, as the only thing the parents could have done to appease this monster was to say nothing and that would have had the effect of allowing him to kill their daughter sooner, rather then seven years later.
Sadly to say this was a lose-lose situation for righteousness, no matter how they handled it.
As Abraham Lincoln once said and it still holds true today: you can fool SOME of the people ALL of the time and ALL of the people SOME of the time BUT you can’t fool ALL of the people ALL of the time…and I’m encouraged to see from the reactions of much of the public to Michael Schiavo, that the American people (for the most part, although, there will always exist a group of useful idiots) however, most of us have not been fooled by Michael Schiavo. Like myself, they appear very well informed on the motivation behind this whole travesty of justice and appear to hold the real culprit here fully responsible for his actions.
Again, I thank GOD for that…
