We laugh, we cry, we live, we die. That is our world of simple gifts and simple pleasures. Yet at times the simplicity becomes complicated by human interference. That seems to be the Terry Schiavo case in a nutshell. I may be wrong, as I have not followed the saga of the Schiavo/Schindler families as closely as have many bloggers, who are indeed having a profound effect on the fate of Mrs. Schiavo. There are many unanswered questions in my mind, such as why this woman was not given therapy if it could improve her life? If her husband had given up hope for her recovery and he wanted to remarry, why could he not divorce her? If her injuries had been caused by domestic violence, why was that not investigated fifteen years ago. There are always two sides to every story, and it may just be that neither side of this story is a "good" one. It may just be that the love of money is the root of the evil here.
In Terry's case, there are thousands, perhaps millions of people who would choose life for her. There are only a few people who want her to die. Why not let her live? It is simple; always choose life.
