Terri Schiavo: Teen Blog Roundup
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the court-sanctioned removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube. Over the next thirteen days bloggers across the blogosphere will be remembering Terri's fight for life.
Good friend and rebelutionary, Agent Tim, has taken the iniative to head up a blog roundup for teen bloggers and will be posting links on his blog later this evening. For now, here are a few posts by teens Brett and I have managed to find. Be sure to check out Agent Tim Online over the next two weeks for further posts and links on the issue.
Agent Tim Online has posted a summary of the events surrounding and leading up to Terri Schiavo's starvation and death:
It was only one year ago today that it happened. Really, it’s hard to believe that’s true, but it is.

Yet the fight for human life is not yet over. 234,851,023 children have been killed since January 2001. More will die today. More will die tomorrow. Each, like Terri, had a life that was cut short. The fight for life should not be forgotten for their sakes.
Are you willing to take a stand to preserve human life?
The Schiavo case was a sad reminder of America’s carelessness and disregard for human life.

I urge all of you bloggers out there today to write a post about Terri. About life... We can't bring Terri back. But hopefully we can prevent this from happening to other people.
