Governor Palin to keynote Award Gala at annual remembrance day for Terri Schiavo

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 24, 2013

I was living in Florida at the time of Terri Schiavo’s death and remember well the horror and the heartbreak surrounding the murder by starvation and dehydration of this one so beloved by her family.  Pro-lifers fought for her survival, but in the end, her adulterous husband, who stood to benefit financially from her death, won in court.  Governor Jeb Bush was sympathetic to Terri’s cause, but he did not do enough.

Terri’s family has made it their life’s work to advocate on behalf of those whose lives are at risk in similar circumstances.  They established the Terri Schiavo Foundation, which is now known as the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network.

Governor Palin, well known for her pro-life views, will be the keynote speaker at the  Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s first annual Award Gala that will follow  “The National Memorial Mass for Terri’s Day,” at which Archbishop Charles Chaput from Philadelphia will officiate..

Here is the announcement from the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network website:.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 23, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network is delighted to announce that Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archbishop of the Diocese of Philadelphia, will celebrate “The National Memorial Mass for Terri’s Day.”

In addition, Governor Sarah Palin will be the honored speaker at the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala following Terri’s Memorial Mass.

The International Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Terri Schindler Schiavo, and All of Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters (“Terri’s Day”) was established in 2007 and is observed each year on or around March 31st, the date of Terri’s death.

The purpose of this day is to 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.

“We are delighted to have His Excellency, Archbishop Chaput, as the main celebrant for Terri’s Memorial Mass and Governor Palin as the keynote speaker at our first Award Gala. Our intention is to raise the needed awareness of this widely misunderstood issue so that the general public recognizes how our medically vulnerable remain in the cross-hairs of an anti-life mentality growing in our nation,” noted Bobby Schindler, Terri’s brother and Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network.

All are invited and encouraged to attend “The National Memorial Mass for Terri’s Day.” Because Easter falls on March 31st, this year’s Memorial Mass will be held on Friday, April 5th, 2013 at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul located at 18th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.

The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala with Governor Sarah Palin will be held in the evening at the downtown Philadelphia Marriott. The first “Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Award” will be presented to an individual/family who fought to protect the dignity of a loved one.
