When Lawyers Define Life

When Lawyers Define Life

By Sovereign Dave

dwissel@adelphia.net

I now take the opportunity to save something valuable from Terri’s fiasco: That is education to save the rest of us. Jay Wolfson most likely did do a very complete job of research; even going beyond the call of duty by examining different philosophies. This is admirable and probably serves well as justification for actions. All we can do is the best with the information and duty we have at hand—even if we might be ignorant to wiser concepts at that time. But just as a scalpel in the hands of an unskilled surgeon is dangerous, so too are lawyers who try to fit the definition of life within the box called law for government. Both might have the best of intentions yet the effect is something even lawyers can understand: damage.

In this case I suspect we are witnessing something far worse with Jay Wolfson--sent in as a last-ditch prop when numbers of people started questioning the fabric of government. In this case the fabric of government stretched their theft of unalienable rights to the point of becoming revealing to a large proportion of the population when they tried to “socialize” the theft in the name of public good. If history is to teach us anything, it is always to be vigilant that we too are not becoming acceptable of the theft of any unalienable right—even if our majority supports same in the name of public good. Mr. Wolfson instantly became the pawn in the game of actually two social agendas; the victims in the war were Terri Schiavo and unalienable rights.



The lesson: One has to remember that government’s only power is obtained through consent—your consent. When you start to question consent to be governed by government you now relegate yourself to the likes of some famous people: Jesus, Ghandi, Buddha, Paine, Adams, Jefferson, King, Parks, etc. The truth popularized by government is that “we consent to be governed.” The myth is that we consent to be governed….by them and their law for government called statutory law.” The myth portion is the democracy and is nearly diametrically opposed to the concept of unalienable rights. [Reflect upon that for a moment and one realizes if myth is true, society degenerates into the powerful group depriving the individual of rights—not unlike Terri Schiavo’s case.]

For years those in “lawyer-land” [black-robes, lawyers and their derivatives—politicians] have led you astray. In the name of social agenda they have tried to shrink-wrap the law that applies to people within the law that applies to government: to make matters worse they have “force-fed” that back to you by the argument of the lesser of two evils. You are told: “Well if there is no law, anarchy prevails.” In our ignorance, we accept this tale of half-truth and give consent of the whip to our slave. But how can I say this is a half-truth? Well this is quite simple: there are two forms of law! There exists common law—the law for the people—and there exists statutory law, the law for government. The common law contains the most “common-sense” of laws: murder, theft, etc. It is the common law to which the people gave their consent to be governed. It is common law to which people still to this day largely govern their actions. Common law is so powerful that many states strictly construe statues of statutory law [i.e law for government] that are in derogation of it. Think about this: On a percentage of the population basis the people of New Orleans’s Katrina behaved quite well under the common sense of their common-law heritage of “Thou shalt not steal nor kill”. Yet where were the statutory law enforcers in the wake of Katrina? Non-existent! In summary: The problems of today can be traced to the sinful evils when law for government (statutory law) is misapplied to the people under the disguise of public good and as a replacement for common law. Sadly it takes incidents like Terri to “wake-up” the population: unto itself a derived testament to how well people behave under common law.

Within the context of this explanation of two laws, let us examine this quote by lawyer Jay Wolfson:

“We can take the best law we can and apply it in the best way we can.

That is all we can do.”

To which law is Mr Wolson referring? [Hint: All lawyers are trained primarily in terms of statutory law: law for government.]
As you have discovered, while he makes a truthful statement it is a half-truth by virtue of three possible reasons: ignorance, sin of commission or sin of omission.
If the people have common law, why is government applying the other law to you? Isn’t this really mis-applying?
If the best law they have in government law doesn’t save an unalienable right, isn’t that an acknowledgment of its inherent limitations when it is mis-applied to people? In other words, Mr. Wolfson’s comments are an admission of the weakness of government laws. {Thankfully]
I won’t dive into the definition of life or social agenda. In this issue, this is the DISTRACTION. This distraction only popularizes the myth of “consent to be governed by government.” The real issue is, “What right does government have to define life?” In the supreme law for government called the Constitution, I do not see this as a grant of power to government! When you grant them this power, those in power take your acceptance as consent and justification for the theft of more power. In essence you transfer a little more of the whip from your hands to that of your slaves.

Subject: Terri Schiavo guardian shares his experience at lecture

RN Ford Comments:

If he cared enough, why would Wolfson not have recommended calling in the true medical experts to evaluate Terri as was requested of him to do? Why did he suddenly disappear off of the case when Governor Bush sent him interrogatories to answer?

Sorry Jay.......your caring about Terri is not sincere and just doesn't fly with those who knew better. She is gone now...... please allow her to rest in peace and for her sake, go and find yourself another tragic story to talk about. You did not care enough then....it's too late now!

Sadly folks, guilt certainly has a way of never leaving those who have assisted in victimizing others.

Terri Schiavo guardian shares his experience at lecture
Guest Speaker: Jay Wolfson, Dr. P.H., J.D. spoke about his now former client, Theresa Schiavo. courtesy photo

"I would sit with her and stroke her hair and hold her hand and I would take her head in my hands and beg her to help me help her," said Jay Wolfson, Dr. P.H., J.D. about his now former client, Theresa Schiavo.

As he talked about his personal thoughts and experiences of brain-damaged Schiavo\'s case Nov. 10, the FIU community sat, and stood, in Graham Center 140, silently listening to Wolfson\'s every word.

Although the fight for Schiavo\'s future had been going on for years, Wolfson, professor of public health and medicine at the University of South Florida, came into the picture in 2003 as the court appointed Special Guardian ad Litem.

He was the legal representative for Schiavo. He had a month to look through all of the legal and medical documents "of a woman I didn\'t know." He reported to Governor Jeb Bush and the courts as to whether or not Schiavo should have more swallowing tests administered. This would guide the governor in his decision-making about the case.

"I didn\'t follow the O.J. or the Schiavo case," said Wolfson. "All of a sudden, I am asked to inject myself into this thing."

Wolfson did more than just read 30,000 pages worth of documents. He turned to famous philosophers and writers such as Dante, Descartes and Nietzsche for answers. He spent time with Schiavo\'s family, the Schindlers and with Michael Schiavo, her husband. Wolfson also spent one to four hours a day with Schiavo.

"I was seeking both information and knowledge," he said.

Wolfson had many special tasks as Schiavo\'s Guardian ad Litem. One of them was to serve in the best interests of his ward. Wolfson said that the problem he had with that task was whether or not he should do what he, or someone else thought was best for Schiavo.

Another task Wolfson had was to determine if there was "feasibility and value in swallowing tests and swallowing therapy given the totality of the circumstances." Wolfson\'s problem with this was that value can be relative.

Wolfson had to make a decision concerning Schiavo\'s fate.

"The scientist in me had to come in," Wolfson said.

The rules given to Wolfson for his decision-making were clear. He had to give competent, clear and convincing evidence.' '"We can take the best law we can and apply it in the best way we can. That is all we can do," Wolfson said.

Wolfson explained that when Schiavo had her accident, she fell and her brain was without oxygen for 12 minutes. She had slipped into a coma and was put on a respirator for a month. Two months later, she was considered vegetative. Schiavo could not swallow liquids.

Wolfson showed on a projector a picture of Schiavo\'s cerebral cortex. He explained that this was where reasoning is. It was where the consciousness may be and it was beyond reflexes. Schiavo\'s cerebral cortex was found to be all liquid.

"Her cerebral cortex was gone," Wolfson said.

Finally, Wolfson\'s decision was made. He decided that additional testing could and would be done if everyone agreed in advance as to how the results were to be used. An agreement was never made.

From within the whirlwind, Wolfson discovered two things.

"I wound up learning that there was something about this case, and it involved a certain chemical - hope," Wolfson said. "Is hope maybe the ability of human beings to have something beyond yourself that is a part of you?"

Wolfson called this ability the divine spark.

"It\'s that special thing which makes us human," Wolfson said.

The second thing Wolfson discovered involved perspective.

"Much of what we see and hear is just the tip of the iceberg, and everyone will have different perspectives of the tip," he said. "What I do know is that things that are said and are represented are not the same."

As the lecture came to an end, Wolfson said he could see why life is so important to people. "The alternative is the unknown and could be not being," he said.

Vision4Children

A friend and supporter of Terri has taken on a mission to help bond and unite children with both of their parents. Please take time to read the mission statement for Vision4Children and then visit their website.
Thank you,
Cheryl


Our vision is to create an environment where all possible supporters of equal parenting can come together to enjoy the benefits of sharing information, experience, and a range of perspectives while at the same time remaining independent. We will provide support of an international organization dedicated to the promotion of an equal and secure environment in which children will benefit from the influence of a loving relationship with both parents and their extended families. The general disregard for equality in parenting causes the loss of parenting arrangements that promote widely accepted family values that are key to establishing stability in children who have the temperament and capacity to respect human dignity and enjoy loving relationships. A presumption of equal parenting within any definition of parenting is necessary for children to learn to get along with others in a fair and equitable manner. Emotional and instructional stability is difficult to establish when both parents have access to adversarial systems that promote lack of cooperation. What is required is an environment where the values of both parents will be respected, and where equal decision-making authority is defended- an environment in which “equal responsibility” is enforced fairly and equal time sharing with the children is facilitated and encouraged. The ultimate goal is to create a working environment in which both parents are valued and required, to ensure the best possible conditions for the upbringing of every child, which will in turn benefit future generations. There are many factors that contribute to the deterioration of equal parenting that need to be addressed in various ways. To that end, all groups who support equal parenting are welcomed to share their understanding of the complexities and extent of the problems and the issues. Together we are more likely to find effective ways of improving the parenting environment for the benefit of the children, the parents and ultimately for all of society. We are attempting to strike an appropriate balance between unity and diversity, respecting both the influence of unity and the creative dialogue of diversity.

Michael Schiavo speaks at local medical ethics conference

RN Ford Comments:
Despite years of his trying to convince the world that it was "Terri's wishes" to die, six months following her death, his slip up with words finally reveal how it was not Terri's wishes.

'' It was only after years of futile effort to revive her that he decided to end her treatment. He said that's what she would have wanted."

If Terri truly had such wishes as Schiavo has stated all of these years, Schiavo should have said, that's what Terri had wanted, as opposed to that's what she "would" have wanted.

One can easily see how his mind functions. Despite her suffering for 13 days, as he deprived her body of food and water...the mere gesture that he laid a rose in her hand, comforts and reassures him that her death was not awful.

Unbelievable!

"His address was met by a standing ovation from the more than 200 people in attendance."

He should have attended Terri's memorial because thousands would have had quite the opposite reaction to his address!

Don't pat yourself on the back all too quickly Michael Schiavo. The selected few death advocates in your fan club, such as Cranford, are by far, NOT in the majority of those who still support Terri Schindler.

September 24, 2005 SCHIAVO0924


In his first public comments since his wife's death, Michael Schiavo said today that ''I never, in my entire life, thought I would be thrown into such a national debate.... All I wanted to do was carry out my wife's wishes.''

Schiavo spoke at a conference in Minneapolis on medical ethics as several dozen protesters marched outside the Hyatt Regency Hotel where the conference was being held.

Wiping away tears, Schiavo described his last moments with his wife, Terri, who died in March after a dramatic court battle to remove her feeding tube.

''Terri didn't die an awful death,'' he said. As she died, ''I laid a red rose in her hand and said goodbye.''

Schiavo, in recounting his 15-year ordeal, said he refused for years to believe his wife was in a permanent vegetative state after she suffered brain damage when her heart stopped in 1990.

When doctors told him in that first year that she would never recover, he said, ''I told them they were wrong. I was going to bring my wife home and we were going to get on with our lives.'' It was only after years of futile effort to revive her that he decided to end her treatment. He said that's what she would have wanted.

Schiavo came to the Twin Cities to speak at a conference honoring Dr. Ronald Cranford, a Minneapolis neurologist who was a medical advisor to him during Terri Schiavo's case.

''I just wanted to thank Dr. Cranford for your help. You gave me a lot of encouragement. You gave me the power to be the person I am right now.'' His address was met by a standing ovation from the more than 200 people in attendance.

"We Will Not Perish In this House, We Will Survive"

Normally, I do not post anything on this BLOG that does not pertain to Terri. However, this story is another example of the sad situations that occur in this country.


Written by Cheryl Ford RN

September 21, 2005

"We will not perish in this house, we will survive." Those were the words that were shared with me yesterday after having a long telephone conversation with Rechell Carter, a 41 year old single mother who survived for three days in an attic with her 14 year old daughter Brianna, her elderly parents, and six other people after their home was flooded in Violet, Louisiana.

In the last few weeks, while volunteering my time with the Katrina Caravan, I have encountered many sad stories. Rechell's courageous, yet tragic experiences inspired me to write about her families survival.

The worst of Hurricane Katrina had passed. The streets were dry, and the sun was shining again. Rechell Carter, recalled how she was standing in her kitchen relieved that her home had only suffered one broken bedroom window as a result of the storm. It was 9:00 AM, the morning after Katrina's winds had shaken the old wooden frame home all during the night. Rechell Carter was preparing breakfast for her daughter. The comfort of knowing they had survived the hurricane without much damage was interrupted by the sound of a woman's voice on a megaphone coming down the street. The voice had yelled,"Mandatory evacuation, expect 15 to 20 feet of water."

Rechell recalls how the woman's voice echoed in the distance as she traveled in a police vehicle with the lights flashing up and down the other streets in her neighborhood. She said, the police car never returned again after the one announcement. Not clearly understanding why there was an announcement for them to evacuate, knowing the storm was already over and the sun was shining, Rechell panicked after hearing that 15 to 20 feet of water was coming.

Rechell explained, that they did not have any extra money to evacuate. Disabled herself, she lives on a very limited income of $700.00 a month. She didn't know what to do. There were still no buses running as a result of Hurricane Katrina, and she is not an owner of a vehicle. Not certain when to expect the 15 to 20 feet of flood waters, or, knowing how long they had to prepare, she immediately called to her daughter Brianna. She and Brianna decided to flee to her parents home, located one block away. Rechell's home did not have an attic, however, her parents home did.

When she arrived at her parents home, she had found her parents and other family members still in bed. She called to her family and told them to get
dressed right away, yelling, "There were supposed to be flood waters coming."

She said, about 40 minutes had gone by since first hearing the lady on the megaphone in the police car, when all of a sudden she heard a very loud explosion. "It sounded like a big boom, like something had been blown up." Rechell explained that she and her family did not know what had caused the explosion.

Hurrying to pack some food and water for her family, not knowing what they were going to do, or where they would go, her mother had come into the kitchen and shouted, "Rechell, what is that water on the kitchen floor!" Before Rechell could grab for a towel, the water was already up to their ankles. She frantically ran for her elderly and obese father, helping to push him up into the attic. Rechell cried as she told me how within 15 minutes after hearing the loud explosion, the water had already reached the ceiling in their house. Rechell shared how she and her family had barely made it into the attic before the house was overcome with dark, oily water.

Rechell continued, "After hearing the explosion, it all happened so fast, it was like someone had opened the entire river and poured it on us. There was no time for any of us to do anything after that woman had come down our street telling us there would be 15 to 20 feet of water." In between Rechell's tearful gasps for breath, she told me how their family cat had just had kittens, and how there was no time at all to save them.

Balancing and holding each other up on the attic beams, they each prayed for three long days that they would not fall asleep and fall backwards through the ceiling into the 20 feet of murky dark waters that had filled their home. They had managed to knock out 5 holes in different sections of the roof, so two heads could poke out of each of the holes and wave their shirts for help. All the time, hoping that the beams in the attic would not collapse. During the three days, they had witnessed one red helicopter come and rescue three neighbors from their roof. After that, every time they would hear a helicopter fly over, Brianna, 14 years old, would look at her Mom and say, "Listen Mommy, they are coming back to save us, please don't cry." However, the helicopters would pass them by. She said, there were many other families who were also stranded on the rooftops. Neighbors would often yell from one roof top to another asking, "how everyone was doing?"

With only a bag of chips, a few pieces of bread and a bottle of water that was sparingly shared amongst ten people, the three days ended when they heard a voice calling to them, "Are you in there?" The voice was Brianna's father who had swam through the murky and foul waters pulling a boat on a rope to their home. "My daughter's Daddy saved our lives," said Rechell. They all slid from the rooftop into the boat.

Their nightmare was long from over. Brianna's father managed to bring them in the boat to the top of a dry levee. There, the family remained surrounded by the dirty flood waters. Hundreds of others who had escaped the flooding in their homes had tiredly made it up the levee as well. Rechell continued, "it was horrible, we all felt like it was the end of the world, we had nothing but each other. We were all dirty, wet, tired, thirsty and hungry. Children were crying and parents were upset not knowing how to help them."

Rechell recalled how the men who she would have normally referred to as the "thugs" in her neighborhood, ended up being the "unsung heroes;" the people who had helped to save the adults and children on the levee from thirst and hunger. She said she witnessed them leave the levee and wade out into the dark, dirty waters and push their fist and arms threw panes of the local store windows, often cutting their arms up badly, in an effort to bring the people and crying children food, water, diapers and juice. Another two nights had gone by according to Rechell, and there were still no signs of helicopters or rescue people coming to help the people stranded on the levee.

Mid morning day three, Rechell recalls how a local man had driven into the water in a huge dump truck. She said the people were so desperate for help and medicine by that time, they jammed as many as they could into the back of the truck. She said, "I thought the truck was going to fall over, there were so many people in there." The man drove them out of the water to dry land. From there, they had walked about three miles before they saw a large barge where hundreds, if not thousands of people, were sitting closely together. There were police officers surrounding the barge. She said they gave them life vests. They sat in the hot sun on the barge for another day, or so. She said after three days in the attic, and two nights on the levee, she began losing track of time. She did recall how they were told not to move around on the barge because it had no side rails and they did not want the people to fall over board. She remembered that from the barge they were transported to Algiers and then escorted to buses where they were driven for 9 hours to the Astrodome in Houston.

Rechell explained, "the people from Houston certainly tried, they gave us water, food and juice, but being at the Astrodome, was just like reliving a different kind of nightmare." She said, when in the Astrodome, they could not help but to feel like animals being herded into an overcrowded pasture. Rechell explained, "It was incredibly loud all of the time, and it was obvious that no consideration was given to the kind of people who were allowed in the Dome, or, who were being placed next to us on cots. There were people from all walks of life."

After 12 long days living in what Rechell describes as another...
"frightening and inhumane experience," she explained how her fears were heightened when she and her daughter Brianna had gone to the showers stalls, to find they had been roped off with tape. A man had told them to go away because the showers were being isolated as a crime scene. She learned that a young girl had just been raped in the showers.

Rechell conveyed how 12 days of living in the Dome was about all she could take before finally breaking down into uncontrollable hysterics. Her uncontrollable tears had brought a volunteer to her side, who then had made arrangements for the family of four to be taken to a smaller shelter in what used to be a boys home.

Rechell told me that she was still not sure where her parents, or other family members were. She said, they had all been separated in Louisiana when they boarded the buses to Houston.

Rechell said FEMA had given them some money, but it wasn't enough for the four of them to relocate into another home in an unknown city, to find transportation, or to eat while waiting on new jobs. She said they have nothing, all is gone, but they are very grateful to God that they have each other. She ended by saying.......... "once we locate a home, my main worry will be to find my Brianna counseling." She said, Brianna is afraid to leave her side, ........."Every little noise is a memory of the loud explosion she heard before the waters came and rapidly filled her Grandma's home."

Needless to say, Rechell's story took my breath away. To think, there are thousands of devastated and homeless families right now in America as a result of a city who did not pay attention to the potential levee problems they were warned about many times over, is beyond belief!

After hearing Rechell's story, I, as a concerned citizen and taxpayer, have many questions ringing through my mind. What was the explosion the family heard right before the flooding had rapidly filled their home? Why did the police woman appear to know exactly how much water would be flooding into Rechell's neighborhood, if there was supposedly only an initial leak (as the news had reported) in the levee? Would a leak actually cause a barrage of 15 to 20 feet of water to pour into the neighborhoods so quickly? Why did the police woman with her megaphone appear to know she could safely drive up and down the streets giving warning to the neighborhoods and then leave, before the water would flood the people out? Why did there appear to be some sections of the city that were flooded, and others, such as the French Quarters, that were spared massive flooding? After all, isn't the entire city in a bowl? I am not certain what actually happened in New Orleans, however, after hearing Rechell's story, it seems to me there are situations that occurred with regard to levees that should be of major concern to all people in America. Many people are now homeless and destitute. Besides those who have lost their lives as a result of an engineering nightmare that should have been dealt with many years ago.

If the Mayor of New Orleans, the Governor of Louisiana and the Congressional Representatives from Louisiana are now demanding that the United States citizens pick up a 250 billion dollar tab, that they alone have determined to be the cost for what happened to the thousands who have lost their jobs, homes, neighborhoods and lives in Louisiana, it seems appropriate that the citizens of America be allowed to investigate what actually happened with regard to the breaks in the levees.

I have taken Rechell's phone number and address, and I have given her mine. Somehow, someway, with the help of God, I will find a way to help Rechell's family. They have nothing but each other, and, whatever donations they receive from the generosity of people. They have no identification with them, because there was no time to retrieve anything. Therefore, until they can obtain picture ID, they are unable to cash checks, or money orders.

They were able to use some of the funds provided to them from FEMA to buy some new undergarments. They also purchased a cell phone so they could try and find other family members, and to hopefully, help them to make the necessary contacts in order to rebuild a new life somewhere.

If you are wishing to help Rechell and her family, please contact:
Cheryl Ford RN by email at: Fight4Terri@aol.com or, you can forward donations directly to: Rechell Carter, PO Box 6833019.. Houston, Texas 77268
Any thing you can give to help Rechell and her 14 year old daughter Brianna rebuild their lives, I know, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Michael Schiavo to tell his side of the story in book

RN Ford Comments: The article reads ....
"Brian Schiavo said the book will be his brother's "opportunity to talk and explain the real truth of what happened."

The REAL truth? What Brian Schiavo fails to recognize is the only person who could have told the REAL truth about her UNEXPLAINED collapse in 1990, Michael Schiavo made certain to have eliminated. Michael Schiavo NEVER provided Terri with the opportunity to tell HER side of the story, or HER wishes. How typical of Michael Schiavo to think society would share in his ignorance. The TRUTH is what the WORLD witnessed on national television on March 31, 2005, when he inhumanely dehydrated and starved an innocent brain injured, but otherwise HEALTHY human being to her death!

* People have NOT forgotten the TRUTH Michael and Brian Schiavo! *

Michael Schiavo to tell his side of the story in book
Posted on Sun, Sep. 18, 2005

Associated Press

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. - Vietnam veteran Michael Hirsh, who has written three books about the military, is co-authoring a book with Michael Schiavo to tell his side of the story in the end-of-life case that divided much of the country.

Schiavo's wife Terri suffered a brain injury in 1990 that left her in what some doctors called "a persistent vegetative state." She died earlier this year after a bitter court battle between her husband and her parents.

Hirsh, 62, expects the 280-page book, "Terri: the Truth," to be available just before the first anniversary of Terri's death. Dutton Publishing publicity manager Jean Anne Rose confirmed that the company is publishing the book in March.

Michael Schiavo's decision to remove a feeding tube that kept his brain-damaged wife alive alienated him from her parents, drew a Congressional intervention and even prompted criticism from President Bush.

But it was Gov. Jeb Bush's order in June for an investigation of whether Schiavo delayed calling 911 when his wife collapsed that motivated Hirsh to become involved.

"There are people who did or said unconscionable things about him, and they started with the president of the United States and worked their way down," said Hirsh, a former Los Angeles television producer.

Brian Schiavo said the book will be his brother's "opportunity to talk and explain the real truth of what happened."

Sherri sends her comments to the Florida State Guardianship Association and Ken Goodman

HOW DISGUSTING and you preface it with the comment below. Hell no he didn't, he had to cover his tracks and make sure she could never speak or write or communicate that it is Michael Schiavo who put her in the situation she was found in. He wanted to make sure she took it to the grave with her and that he and his cronies covered up their crimes.

"We see a lot of situations where family steps away," said association president-elect Michelle Kenney, a care manager and professional guardian in Broward County. "He stuck by. He didn't walk away."

Obviously you condone LEGALIZED MURDER and you chose to OVERLOOK THE LACK OF TREATMENT HE DIDN'T GIVE HER AFTER HE GOT THE MONEY TO CARE FOR HER. DO NOT RESUSCITATE OR ALLOW HER EVEN ICE CUBES OR DENTAL CARE? Come on. Cut the crap.

Controversial doesn't even begin to describe your choice. YOU SELECTED HIM BECAUSE YOU CONDONE MURDER yet you wish to call it CARE AND COMFORT. You deserve no better than to SUFFER WHAT TERRI SUFFERED, and I can only hope that you reap what you sowed. As For Michael, I hope he rots in hell and anyone who helped him hopefully will get the same as you certainly DO NOT DESERVE PRAISE, ADMIRATION OR ANY REWARDS. YOU ARE DESPICABLE.

Mongold sends her opinion to the FSGA about Michael Schiavo

Dear Sirs: 8-11-05

It is unbelievable to me that a group such as yours would choose to so brazenly offend those who are in mourning by honoring Michael Schiavo in the face of this highly charged battle of life and death. Regardless of your obvious support for Michael Schiavo, it would have showed more grace and class to refrain from public gloating. Has your pro-death agenda blinded your group so callously that you have forgotten that a person is dead? If Mr Schiavo in fact loved his wife as he said he did, I should think he would not be in a banqueting mood.

The actions of your group reveal your heart and your motives as well as those of Michael Schiavo by his acceptance of this award. He got what he wanted, why does he have to cruelly dance to the music of death, and why do you pipe the tune?

Mr. Fredi D'Alessio's letter to the Florida Guardianship Association for their honoring Michael Schiavo for Terri's death

Congratulations Florida Guardianship Association!

According to your website:
FSGA is dedicated to promoting the protection, dignity, and value of incapacitated persons through a code of ethics, advocacy, and the dissemination of information. FSGA's mission also includes a focus on furthering the professionalization of guardians as accountable court representatives through education, networking, and legislative action.
A guardian is directed by ethics and statute to make decisions in the best interest of the ward.
And to be nominated for the Distinguished Guardian of the Year:
The awardee must:
meet the criteria for a Guardian set in FL Statue 744
demonstrate leadership and contribute to the Profession of Guardianship
The awardee should:
be recognized by his/her peers as a positive reflection of the profession
demonstrate a working knowledge of the FL Statues
represent his/her wards with service that improves the wards quality of life
The public stand you took in selecting Michael Schiavo for your Distinguished Guardian of the Year award is indeed a public service as it reveals just how far you have drifted from your original (I presume) good intentions. Thank you for no longer concealing the fact that you have nothing but contempt for everything and everyone you claim to stand for. Do complete this act of openness by updating your website accordingly.

Sincerely,

Fredi D'Alessio, California
