A Life That Matters: The Legacy of Terri Schiavo -- A Lesson for Us All : In 2004-5, when the Terri Schiavo case divided the country, one side of the story was buried under the avalanche of politics and power. Now, Terri Schiavo's parents, brother, and sister speak out - for Terri and themselves. A Life That Matters may well change every assumption you have about Terri's too-brief life and prolonged, agonizing death. Here the people who loved her and knew her best tell the story not only of the fifteen years Terri struggled to stay alive, but of a gentle child who brought happiness to everyone she touched. This is the story of a normal adolescent who blossomed into the beautiful young woman who captured Michael Schiavo's heart. And it is the inside story of their troubled relationship, for the members of Terri's family were witnesses to a growing tension - and were her confidants as she struggled in her marriage with the husband who would later crusade for her premature and unnecessary death.
