In Remembrance

Today is the sixth anniversary of the judicially ordered murder of Terri Schiavo. Lydia wrote an article for Touchstone a couple of years ago (not available online) based on her longer, and thoroughly devastating, review of the judicial proceedings at The Christendom Review, and for which she received a grateful response from Terri's father, now deceased. Not long after Terri's death, she wrote a letter to the editor of First Things, responding to an article by Robert Miller. You'll find it slightly over halfway down the page, along with Miller's response.

And there is my own reflection at Touchstone, from March 2005. I still think of her a lot, and hope other people do too.

[Update]: I neglected to mention that Lydia's TCR article draws heavily on witness testimony, the complete transcripts of which are available online (and possibly anywhere else in the world) only here.
[Up-update]: And her Touchstone article, "Road to a Kill," is now available here.

Thanks for linking these, Bill. I too think of her often, and find occasion to talk of her to my students when her life intersects with something I'm teaching. It's hard to believe it's been six years.

Thank you, Bill. Six years. It doesn't seem that long ago.

I think of her often. Thanks, Bill, for the picture on your blog to help us remember.

Hey, you're welcome.
