Straight Up with Sherri

Thursday, February 17, 2005


Straight Up with Sherri would like to announce with GREAT EXCITEMENT and HONOR that we have joined the BLOGBURST for Terri Shiavo! If you notice the margin to the right, you will see a blogroll of the many others who are joining!! If you have a blog, I urge you to join the fight to SAVE TERRI!

A few days ago I shared with you the story of
Sarah Scantlin. In fact, it was Valentine's Day and I picked her story because of the wonderful miracle of love. Sarah had been in a REAL coma since 1984, and awoke just last month.

Some of you may already be familiar with Terri’s story, and some of you may not. If you are not, please take the time to
actually read the history and facts about Terri’s condition. For anyone in any doubt about Terri’s condition, here are some links to some videos of her:

Terri Responds To Father (Just Found by Common Sense Runs Wild - rare) - updated
Terri watching a balloon
Terri's alert eyes
Terri responds to cold
Terri responds to her mom
Terri responds to music (my favorite because she actually laughs)
Terri responds to touch
(MISSING) - this video is of Terri struggling to get out of her wheelchair when she was told they were going to starve her to death. Judge Goerge Greer has sealed this tape and threatened Terri's family if it is released. So much for courts being about the pusuit of TRUTH, HUH JUDGE? (spit) This SEALED tape clearly shows that Terri has NO DESIRE TO DIE!

One of the most disturbing things I have run into when discussing Terri with others, is their lack of knowledge. Many people I have spoken with do NOT know all the facts, and act as if killing Terri is an act of mercy! WRONG! IT IS MURDER- OUT AND OUT MURDER! Not only is it MURDER, it is a HORRIFIC and PAINFUL TORTURE. Starving someone is SADISTIC! Terri is VERY MUCH ALIVE! Let me say this again, TERRI IS VERY MUCH ALIVE! She is not wilting in a comatose state! She actually gets visibly upset when someone turns of the music, and struggles to communicate, even making sounds! Terri is handicapped, not comatose or hooked up to machines to make her heart beat or her lungs breath.


According to Florida State Law,
CHAPTER 828 (828.12), a person, who intentionally commits an act to any animal which results in cruel death, is guilty of a felony.

Even the most heinous of criminals are entitled to better treatment. This woman is guilty of NOTHING.

If there was ever a time in your life that you wanted to make a difference, NOW is the time to DO IT! If you have lost faith in the fact that YOUR voice CAN count, and that we can truly make a difference, THIS IS THE MOMENT TO GET THAT FAITH BACK! If you ever wanted to show the MSM that the blogesphere, and the everyday American, CAN affect change WITHOUT THEM- DO IT NOW!

Michael Shiavo REFUSES to give Terri the therapy she needs to get her voice back. SHE NEEDS YOUR VOICE! WON'T YOU PLEASE LEND HER YOUR VOICE TO SAVE HER LIFE?

Take a few moments and contact any of the below that you can. If you are a regular here at Straight Up with Sherri, I am sure you know what I am about to share next, my favorite quote; the one I LIVE BY!

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for a good man to do nothing."
Edmund Burke

I thank you, and TERRI thanks you............


  • Sherri

    Thanks for taking up the fight to SAVE TERRI!

    It is this simple, if I told someone that if they were willing to spend 15 minutes per day for the next few weeks, that they could save someone's life, most people would do this. Too many of us depend on others to do this.

    If we all depend on everyone else to take hte time, it will never get done.

    Now, if I tell them that it will only work if EVERYONE I ask, actually DOES it, maybe they will truly take the time.

    Please urge all your readers as you are doing.

    We are desperate. We have struggled wiht this for over a decade. This is truly our last hope to save her.

    Thank you Sherri and mya God bless you,

    A friend of Terri's

    PS welcome to the team, we will be notifying you on special projects to do to help.

  • Well, you got me. How do I get included in the blogroll? By posting something in my blog? No problem.

    I had no idea she was in anyway lucid or communicative. Of course it wouldn't have mattered. Once she was taken off life support, that was it for me. She deserves evry opportunity to recooperate. And her prick husband should be helping her.

  • masculiste, Sherri has mandated there shall be no swearing on her blog! Take it back!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:43 PM  

  • I think in htis particular case that the word "prick" is not only appropriate but WARRANTED!

    I will let it stand!

    As for B-O-R-I-N-G

    God help you!

    Nothing boring about saving a life....I sure hope no one takes that attitude if something like this happens to you or someone you love- if your capable of love, that is!

    No wonder you didn't want to leave your name--- so I guess I will just refer to you as SCUMBAG!

  • I have chimed in at:

    I am sure I am too busy to post every day, but I am glad to do my part.

  • Thanks very much, Sherri, for making the effort to educate people about this case.

    I am honestly most people, all that I knew about Terri's case was what I had heard through the usual news outlets, and with only that information at my disposal, I too had assumed that she was in a coma and was completely unresponsive. It's obvious that she is very much alive and alert.

    The degree to which our national media have failed us in accurately reporting the news is nothing less than criminal. I grow more and more disgusted with each passing scandal and revelation. The MSM is up in arms over the increasing influence of weblogs in the development of news stories, but many of us feel we can no longer depend on the MSM alone to give us the straight scoop.

  • The MSM is dispicable. They don't want to lose their power but they are and Terri is one of the reasons why they are.. because as I say their reporting is dispicable and isn't serious investigative or responsible journalism. The MSM gets dumbed down more and more each day. The power of the internet INDEPENDENT REPORTERS AND RESEARCHERS, ETC. inversely increases in a geometrical progression each and every day! We will and must demand justice for Terri and we must get justice! As far as the MSM giving equal time to those attempting to accomplish murder I now condemn them to a quick loss of power for their aiding and abetting for so long the lies. WAKE UP MSM!!!
