My Anger With Our Elected Officials & the Terri Schindler-Schiavo Case

It’s late Saturday night and early morning Sunday as I recorded this podcast. Terri has been without food and water for many hours now…Our emotions and our hopes keep going up and down.

Now I hear about our inept elected officials screwing around on the job. Between the Senate and the Congress, they have passed two separate but different bills to save Terri and in doing so they have lost valuable time. Who was asleep at the wheel while this happened? A few minutes ago they said that they have finally fixed the two bills into one which will need passing on Monday.

My guess is they would have damned well written and passed one correct bill the first time, if it was their loved one’s life on the line.

I don’t mean to complain about the very people who are working so hard to save Terri’s life, but for those of us who elected them, we’re starting to get a little worried that our best and brightest are …well…neither ! God help them as they try to help Terri! But for us, it is very frustrating to be depending on someone else to right this situation and save Terri.

I’m sorry, but this has become personal to me, and I think to you as well. I had to blow off a little steam. Don’t play this podcast for small children either, I get a little heated.

Pray for these folks! Offer today’s (Sunday March 20th ) mass intentions for them and Terri.
God Bless you all!
