One Year Later: Out of Evil, Good Emerges

Terri Smiles at Her Mom

“God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.”

One year after Terri Schiavo’s death by euthanasia, these words of St. Augustine are especially fitting.

During Terri’s final days on earth, her parents, brother, and sister often said that the intensely trying ordeal of witnessing her painful death was bringing them closer together than ever before.

Now, Terri’s parents, Bob & Mary Schindler, brother Bobby, and sister Suzanne Vitadamo all work for the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, which is dedicated to helping disabled individuals get the medical treatment they want. Bobby quit his job as a science and math teacher at a Tampa Catholic high school, and Suzanne left a position as a stockbroker to work for the foundation.

“We lost our battle to save Terri, but we believe it is incumbent on us to redirect our efforts to saving the lives of the innocent, who every day are being targeted by the euthanasia cult,” Mary Schindler recently commented.

Eventually, the Schindler family hopes to establish a network of Terri Schindler Schiavo centers to provide care for brain injury victims and support for their families.

The Schindlers should serve as an example for all of us. Having experienced the unspeakable pain of witnessing their loved one die an excruciating court-ordered death, they have not despaired. They have not sought vengeance. They have not retaliated in kind.

Instead, they have persevered, clinging to faith in the One True God, and have vowed to do His will.

    Terri’s story really is remarkable, even in its horrible end. Her parents amaze me in their dedication to her then and now.

    I grew up a few miles from where Terri did, and graduated last year from the same high school she did, Archbishop Wood. For me, Terri’s story was personal in a way it could be for few others, both because of my close proximity to her area and school, and because of the story of my grandfather’s final days.

    I wrote my own retrospective here, if anyone is interested.

    Terri’s story was personal to Terri’s family. It should have stayed that way.
