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.

    Really Zliberty? Sold out??? You sure about that? And no one took her up in the $ 25k private audience.

    Not surprised Hillary can get $200k a side h now , and good on her…. She’s earned it. Sarah has not and my comment was specifically in response to Tawny’s comment that Sarsh ” gives her time” to causes. No, she uses causes to pull in money fir herself. Example #1: Sarah PAC.

      As of the evening before the event, Thotocv, it appears you were right — no takers for the $25,000 private audience. The event itself was not sold out. The Schindlers probably ended up paying Mrs. Palin more than they took in. I guess the Schindlers felt that they needed her “star power.” It will be interesting to see how lucrative her “star power” was for them once they release the details of their expenses associated with this event.

    L3 because an an illegal who gets a new car while I get bills that is wrong. What is your problem you have to side with an illegal alien? It used to br US against them. Must I mention the falsified police report (which could never have happened due to the picture) was caused by the skinheads? And let me guess you are down with them as well. As the crips and skinheads and mexican mafia all have a problem with me cause I am Jewish. And if you want to comment please DON’T FORGET TO MENTION YOUR AFFILIATIONS as well.

    Bristol, I am sure that your Mom gave a great speech.

    It is amazing how just the mention of your Mom’s name seems
    to draw a lot of weird comments from the Left-Wing-Nut Crowd.

    God bless Sarah Palin, a GREAT American.

    Bristol, I just knew you mom did great, the Lord is with her, ALWAYS!

    Psalm 33:

    Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.
    13 From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees all mankind;
    14 from his dwelling place he watches
    all who live on earth—
    15 he who forms the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.

    16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
    no warrior escapes by his great strength.
    17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
    despite all its great strength it cannot save.
    18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
    on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
    19 to deliver them from death
    and keep them alive in famine.

    20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
    21 In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
    22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.

    I will leave you with this one, little sister:

    What a beautiful, powerful picture:
    Psalm 22: 9 and 10

    9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

    10 I was CAST UPON THEE from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
    Wow, He was there all the time!

    And so He will be with us always!

    Be encouraged my brothers and sisters in the Lord – He is faithful, His mercies are new every morning. The enemy is our accuser – Jesus is always there making intercession for us.

    I love you all and A blessed weekend to you all!
    Remember to pray for Pastor Saeed and Christians in Iran.

    Schiavo Dinner-Palin

    This was a great Event….Very glad I attended…..Gov Palin covered quite a bit and did a great job of touching on this very serious topic (personally for the Schindler’s with possibility of anyone in this country). Not Part of Palin’s comments but some facts form last nights program….Most people do not realize that food and water is now defined as “medical treatment” and therefore can be denied or removed from people with cognitive disabilities, the elderly, those with alzheimer’s disease, and a growing list of other medically vulnerable individuals.

    Terri Schiavo experienced a premature end to her life by court ordered starvation and dehydration.

    Congrats to Schiavo Hope & Healing, beginning (first steps) of the first Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Recovery Center in Philadelphia. This center will provide rehab and recovery services for individuals with catastrophic Brain-injuries and other types physical disabilities.

    Bristol, I am so proud of you and your Mother. You are both Women of integrity and courage.

  • Jose

    I can’t forget Terry Schiavo. I keep her in my heart. Thank You Bristol and Sarah!

    It’s really too bad Terry Shiavo didn’t simply have her end of life wishes in writing. Then none of that family mess would have happened. The foundation should really be advocating for that…. And not paying someone like Sarsh Palin, who infamously distorted the important end of life care provisions in the Afforable Care Act . How ironic.
