Terri Schiavo : Rest in Peace

Terri Schindler Schiavo died this morning, ending a 14-day ordeal of starvation. Sadly, her parents and other family were not with her at the end.

( - After 14 days without food or water, Terri Schiavo died around 9:50 Thursday morning - shortly after her parents issued an emotional plea to be at her hospice bedside in her final moments of life.

Terri's husband and legal guardian, Michael Schiavo, denied the Schindler family's final request to be with Terri as she took her last breath.

At least her ordeal is over. Our prayers go out to her family.

Words have failed me, here are some worthy thoughts from others I trust ...

"May Spirit touch (and heal) the hearts of all involved."

"...we think the fight needs fighting, and isn't over."

For today, that is enough.
