Mom Is…

… Speaking tonight at the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala and dinner.  Many of you remember when that issue came to the forefront of our minds and hearts.  I’m proud of my mom and how she always sheds light on life issues.

Governor Sarah Palin will be the honored speaker at the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala and dinner following the mass, scheduled to begin at 6:30pm at the downtown Philadelphia Marriott. During the gala, the inaugural “Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Award” will be presented to Moe & Sana Maraachli . The award honors an individual or family that defended the life of a loved one against overwhelming odds. Deborah Flora , actress, producer, radio talk show host and second runner-up to Miss America , will preside as emcee at the gala, which will include addresses from award-winning author and bioethicist Wesley Smith and critically acclaimed author and speaker Brian Gail , plus several celebrity video addresses.

Terri’s Day was established by Terri Schiavo ‘s family to remember her and foster education, prayer and activism regarding discrimination against the cognitively disabled, and advocacy for people in situations similar to what Terri and her family faced.

    Caring Intelligent Beautiful Person is a mild description of Sarah Palin. IMHO!

  • michele

    Please tell her Welcome to Pa for me! Even though she is on the wrong side of the state maybe soon she can come to our side and visit all us “clingers” here in NW Pa!

    Ugh, hate the thought this is going on within minutes of my house.

    I did hear sales to the speech were slow and as of yeaterday no one had bought a $2500 ticket for a special audience with Palin. How much is Sarah charging for this event?

    • liberty

      Hey LOONEYTOONS(Thotocv)It was sold out all the tickets were sold . Put another zero it was $25.000.
      What do you care your not paying for it. Ask how much HILLERY is charging for her speeches that would be 200,000 dollars.

  • Sue Lynn

    Love your mom. God Bless Sarah Palin in Jesus name!

  • melory

    A great cause, your mom will be great!

  • Tawny Jones

    Gov. Palin always gives a great speech, and she gives her time to worthy causes.

  • Thotocv

    For a price Tawny. They are paying her, no doubt.

    You know what’s really crazy about this? The so-called ” death panels” Sarah Palin was raging about we’re really just a requirement for doctors to discuss with patients living wills and end of life wishes. If Terri Shiavo had had such wishes in place, there would never had been a question about what she did or didn’t want.

    But I’m doubting Sarah Palin speaks about the need for such documents tonight!

    Terri Schaivo was anorexic and bulimic and starved herself until she had a heart attack that led to her being in a coma. Her family should have simply advocated for her and stepped in prior to her killing herself through dieting. We should care about the living; those with eating disorders or other mental conditions that need our help NOW, not after they suffer irreversible effects from their illness.

    Thought I’d look for a topic in the comments to comment on and I did! The american drs said if I ever came out of my drug induced coma (by the drs) I’d be a vegetable. I was in a car accident because an illegal alien parked on the side of the highway to walk across the service road to buy fireworks on July 2nd. I have since learned to read and write and talk again despite NUMEROUS more head injuries.
    The local police were listed as witnesses to the accident. Some ladies whose license plate # who were in a nearby car on the highway at the time of the accident were recorded as witnesses as well.
    After I learned to talk again I called the ladies. They said a semi forced us into the shoulder and we hit a culvert launching us into the air but destroying the car we were in. Which saved our lives. I called the local police and they, who were listed as witnesses, said thry didn’t see it.
    I took pictures of the culvert (not built to code) and the next week it was totally destroyed. The police came buy and I had to give them the pictures. And other times I was called by the police as “the person that tried to commit suicide” with the driver of the other car.
    I am proud of all the work the Palins do. And just because someone claims Terri Schiavo was trying to kill herself doesn’t at all make it so. Social media has good points and bad. Sometimes social media reminds me of biblical “stoning”. It doesn’t make it right that everyone else is throwing stones we should too. It has only recently occurred to me that the stones may have not been the bricks I imagined but possible the inch – inch and a half stones. This is a million times worse pardon the pun. So Terri Schiavo deserves to die by our hands just as much as anyone who claims she deserves to die for being sick. Because THAT is sick.

      You weren’t brain dead or in vegetative state with a brain that had atrophied. You obviously have some issues from your accident (and why mention illegal aliens?) I digress, you are still talking and typing, but Shiavo’s heart stopped for 20 minutes and killed her brain due to lack of oxygen. Way different scenario. If you were brain dead for 15 years and a dried up husk of a person you’d still want to live? Crazy stream of consciousness but hey, that’s your reality, right?
