The View from the Firehouse

The one thing that is universal in fire stations the world round, is usually late at night there is a deck of cards, a pot of coffee and two or three fire fighters sitting around solving the worlds problems. It’s just a shame that no one listens to us.

I hate to sound like a pessimist but...

This post from Blogs for Terri is just one more example that shows that the world is comming to an end in a hurry. I don't understand how a hosptial can just look parents in the eye and say we aren't going to help your child anymore, have a nice life. So whats next, in a couple of years will I respond to a call of an elderly person having a heart attack a say sorry but according to my sop's(standard operating procedures) I can't help you. You would have died sooner of later anyway, have a nice life, whats left of it.

And where is the ACLU in all of this. I mean if they couldn't make a case for the hospital dening this child her basic right to life, after all they would do it for a death row inmate. Then surely they could make a case for the parents not being allowed to make the choice on rather there daughter lives or dies. But that whould be wishful thinking.

So lets keep this family in our prayers.
