Mom Is…

Mom Is… April 5, 2013

… 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!

  • Thotocv

    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.

  • Thotocv

    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?

  • Thotocv

    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.

    • TrueBlue

      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.

  • michael

    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.

  • David

    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.

  • melory

    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.

  • Tom

    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!

  • Thotocv

    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.

  • Only one person that ive seen in this country can spk like your Ma to us all,but its time for one to put both feet in the water and not just one… Keep on Truckin… ~ !

  • Thotocv

    Problem is John, by ” us all” you mean a minority and that’s not going to win any elections even if she cared to govern.
