Michael Schiavo has permission to remove Terri Schiavo's feeding tube at 1:00 p.m. today. For updates and to learn what you can do, read blogs for Terri. Terri Schiavo's treatment at the hands of her husband and the judicial system is a travesty. I have to confess that I haven't yet taken a concrete, real-world action, along the lines suggested here. Yet I know that what turns tragedies into shameful, sordid spectacles is the tendency of people, like me, living a comfortable existence with the best of intentions, to fail to pull five minutes out of the inertia of my day to make a phone call or donate some cash or take some other action that says:

"No. This is not right. She is a child of God. Stop this travesty. Allow those who love her to lavish her with the loving care and kindness they desperately wish to lavish on her, until she dies a natural and peaceful death."
