She's dying, and has been in a persistive vegatative state for 15 years. I think her looking "good" is all relative. When I hear the news saying things like "she's still responding to her parents" I keep thinking "I know it LOOKS like she was/is, but really, she never was." I know that sounds cold... I don't mean it to. It just goes to the heart of this whole battle -- that her parents have never been and still aren't ready to let go.
This is why I feel sorriest for them. In years to come, when reality sets in, they will regret not spending more time with their daughter and less time in the courts, giving press conferences, maintaining a website, giving speeches and lobbying senators and governors. They should be with their daughter.
|ETA: Just a half hour after I wrote that, they were denied a hearing. Come on... how many times do they have to hear no before they focus their attention on saying goodbye to their daughter, instead of continuing to waste time and money?!|
