36. The Bible says we should cry when a baby is born and celebrate
when someone dies (I cannot remember the book, chapter), however, we do the opposite.

These parents are not thinking of their daughter. They are thinking of themselves, and the fact that they cannot do anything. I cannot blame them for trying every way they can. She is their child. I cannot imagine watching my child die. I also cannot imagine seeing my child day after day for 15 years lying in a bed, and her body starting to twist up due to spasms and contortions of the muscles. By them exhausting all avenues, once she is gone, they will not have guilt for lack of trying. However, they have treated their former son-in-law like a murderer.

Some of the comments about Terri's husband are terrible. Anyone in the news that starts talking about him are only getting their information from what the parents or brother has said. Larry King (who never gives anyone a tough interview), sat on his high stool and continued to accuse this man that there is something he is going to benefit by Terri's death.

He obviously has a lawyer, and I really do not understand why he does not start filing some defamation of character lawsuits. (maybe he is waiting until after Terri dies????)

Also, the Bible says that once you take a husband or a wife, you leave your parents. (same as above).

I read my Bible, I just cannot memorize it.
