NO ONE MENTIONED TERRI???
The Connection between Donald Herbert and Terri Schiavo
Yesterday I woke up to news of a miracle: Donald Herbert, a firefighter that lapsed into a coma following a December 29, 1995 house fire accident, spoke for the first time in almost 10 years. His first words? "I want to talk to my wife."
How many of you, after hearing this same story immediately thought of Terri Schiavo? I know I did. In both stories we have an individual dealing with the after effects of brain-damage and who are reportedly unresponsive to their surroundings. Another similarity is the purported videotape alleged to show Donald Herbert unable to communicate and with little awareness as to what is going on around him. Doesn’t that sound a lot like the Terri Schiavo story? I really wanted to see how the major news media outlets were going to cover the story of Donald Herbert and how they were going to address the similarities between the two stories. With all of those high paid news analysts and commentators I was convinced it would not be too long before someone tied the two events together.
Despite having spent most of the day scanning through several television stations and mainstream media outlets hoping to see a mention of the similarities between the two stories or a comment made regarding a possible nexus, I could not find any mention of Terri Schiavo when the Donald Herbert story was discussed.
