Remembering Terri Schiavo

From The Tampa Tribune Herald

Three years ago yesterday, Monday March 31, Terri Schiavo, age 41, died in Pinellas Park, Florida, almost two weeks after doctors removed her feeding tube.

Family members and friends of Schiavo are calling for a day of remembrance to mark the anniversary of her death, and have declared March 31 "Terri's Day."

"We want Terri's day to remind us that persons with disabilities are never burdens and should be treated with nothing by our unconditional love and compassion," said Schiavo's sister, Suzanne Vitadamo, in a statement.
