A Tragic Anniversary

Today marks the first anniversary of the death of Terri Schiavo. March 31, 2005, was a tragic date in a great nation. It was the day when America’s materialism reached its latest horrific and absurd low–when a woman died because her people fell for the deceptions that the value of human life is relative, that marital vows are irrelevant, that the ersatz principle of self should supercede the transendent principle of inalienable human dignity.
