What a sad two weeks. Terri Schiavo, Pope John Paul II, among others. Almost as if the showers of spring are tears being let forth.
"I appreciate the example of grace and dignity that [Schiavo's relatives] have displayed at a difficult time. I urge all those who honored Terri Schiavo to continue to work to build a culture of life where all Americans are welcomed and valued and protected, especially those who live at the mercy of others.
"The essence of civilization is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak. In cases where there are serious doubts or questions, the presumption should be in favor of life."
-- President Bush
