Sherri's Grandmother Has Passed Away

Let us offer a moment of prayer.

Right Wing Nut Job


  • May she rest in peace Sherri. You have all our prayers of course.

  • Sherri may you rest in His love during this trial and
    may your efforts continue to bring forth much
    fruit on behalf of all the vulnerable in our land.

    An honor meeting you whilst working for Terri.

    God bless,

  • i have a question.

    i read somewhere on here where Sherri said: "I wish I could be with my Grandmother!!"

    so what you're saying is she had the time/money to go to Florida and butt into a private family matter .. but didn't have the time and money to go see her Grandmother who was dying?

  • My deepest sympathies, Sherri. I'm sure your grandmother contributed to making you the awesome person that you are. In that, her time here may be done, but her spirit continues to gift the world.

  • Anonymous,

    Sherri did spend time with her Grandmother these past few days. Also before and between her recent trips to Florida. She was at her Grandmother's home, along with her mother. These are trying times in Sherri's life.

  • Oh Sherri, my prayers are with you.
    Mayb God carry you through this.

    Hey Anon, have a heart, Sherri's grandmother was given food and water, she died. Where as Terri was given food/water and she lived. Now that she is being DENIED food/water is when she is dying. There is a big difference here. Terri breathes on her own. BTW, do you think Christopher Reeve should have been denied life support...which he WAS on, INCLUDING a ventilator!

  • hmmmm .. i'm thinking that if she put as much time and effort into her OWN FAMILY as she has put into this BATTLE that isn't hers to fight .. perhaps she wouldn't feel so guilty about not being at her Grandmother's bedside when she died .. since she claims to have LOVED her so much ...

    Sherri -- my heart and my prayers are with you and your grandmother.

    I am very sorry for your loss. My best wishes go out to you and your family.

  • I shouldn't respond, but I will..

    anonymous, I have to tell you, I feel sorry for you. I mean that sincerely. How dark of a place it must be where you are.....

    I'm not going to defend or discuss my personal family relationships with you or for you. I assure you that I carry no shame in where I have put my time and effort.

    I am saddened not by your cruelty, but what it says about our country. If we shared the same political philosophy, would you be so judgmental and accusitory? WOuld you make so many assumptions?

    I tend to think not... I tend to believe that if we were brothers or sisters in political ideology, you would find compassion....

    This is the stark difference between the two MAJOR "camps."

    I once was having a discussion with someone at church. We were discussing the terror and genocide in Africa. I had made the comment that I felt the culture of violence was more about culture, not religion. FOr even the Christians were involved in TERRIBLE things.

    A man overhearing our conversation said "No they aren't."

    This man is very ill and has problems with the chemical levels in his system and sometimes is less than lucid... We both started to correct him....but before we could, he said-"They aren't Christians. They just CLAIM to be Christains."

    THis "less than lucid" man had hit in the head!

    He was soooo right.

    This taught me a valuable lesson....

    Who you are is differnet than who you CLAIM to be...

    I am a conservative... politically speaking, this is who I am...

    There are exceptions, but on the whole. I tend ot be a conservative.

    The biggest difference is the understanding of the other side and realizing that the core of what defines us is not political idology, but our core...
    that being said.. I know that a TRUE conservative would not attack a liberal in such the way you have tried to provoke me...

    does this make you a liberal? I don't know... I tend to think that TRUE liberals are compassionate, sincerely... the TRUE liberals are sincere about their compassion for others, they just don't believe in absolutes...

    I could be wrong, I have been before... I will be again...

    what I do know is that a TRUE Christian would never act in the way you just have....

    definitons can mean nothing, or everything.... it is YOUR choice...

    If you choose to allow your ideology to rule over all, to the point that it defines how you treat someone in the loss of a loved one... then I would tend to believe you are neither liberal, or conservative..
    just dark, and broken...

    I will surely pray you find a peace in your life that would bring you to a place where you can differentiate between human compassion and ideology..

    And I sincerely thank you for your prompting of me to share this...

    But, by all means, don't stop on my account, please continue to show us your character.....

  • Sherri Sherri Sherri ...

    You hit the nail RIGHT on the head.

    *I* am not claiming to be a CHRISTIAN, like you are.

    *I* am not claiming to be holier than thou, like you are.

    *I* am not claiming to be better than anyone, like you are.

    I merely am pointing out your continued hipocracy. Nothing more, nothing less. About me:

    I am pro-life (anti-abortion).

    I am AGAINST the death penalty.

    I am FOR stem cell research.

    I am FOR human rights.

    I am AGAINST war.

    I BELIEVE in marriage and family.

    I am AGAINST homelessness and the fact that one single child in AMERICA goes to bed hungry at night. Do you put so much effort into that struggle?

    I am FOR animal rights.

    I am FOR equal pay for equal jobs.

    But you said it here: what I do know is that a TRUE Christian would never act in the way you just have...

    Nor would a TRUE Christian act the way you have. You have posted over and over horrible things about Michael Schiavo. You have posted horrible things about anyone who disagrees with your beliefs. You have judged others. You have ridiculed others. A TRUE Christian would not act the way you have been acting.

    I am not broken nor dark. My character is TRUTH. I am true to what I believe in and stand for. I don't hide behing the Bible and profess to be so pure .. while I'm slinging dung out the other side of my mouth.

    And how funny that one of your own .. thought the same thing I did and predicted that someone would SEE the truth ...

    Look at that plank in your own eye, Sherri. The splinters must be excrutiating.

  • Sherri, I believe you did the right thing. You couldn't help your grandmother -- all you could do was to tell her "I love you" and bless her journey, and you obviously did that. You can help Terri, and you are obviously doing that, too.

    Anyone who says you "aren't a Christian" for not being at your grandmother's bedside should remember that that would have been the easy choice to make. God calls on us to make the hard choices, to sacrifice our own happiness to make the world a better place. You've done that. God will bless you for what you are doing.

    As a postscript, my mother didn't want my sister and me present when my father died. We were with him up until half an hour before he died. Those last moments were private for the two of them. That is appropriate in every way. I was not present when either of my grandparents died, but that doesn't take away from how much I loved them , or how much they loved me, in any way.

    Keep on, Sherri! You are there for Terri, for all of us, and especially for the rights of disabled people all over the United States, who know that if Terri dies, there is no reason that they won't be next. Bless you.

  • Hey anon:

    I am a Christian as well, but I am also a human being. The old man would really like to put you out of your misery. You just are not worth it and you need help.

    LMFFAO ...

    Yea you're a Christian...I can see that. Degrading me. Telling me I'm not worth it. I should be put out of my misery.

    You are nothing but a hypocrite. And a pathetic one at that.

    I'm not the one that needs help .. TAKE THAT PLANK OUT OF YOUR EYE .. WOULD YA?

  • OK, just saw this.
    so sorry, Sherri. sending hugs.

  • anon, I would try to take that plank out of my eye, but it keeps swinging for your head.

    go figure.
