Should Terri Schiavo’s Death Day Become A Holiday?

ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Terri Schiavo may have died but one Atlanta man wants her memory to live on as a national holiday.

William Greene, president of, is starting a nationwide campaign to declare March 31 – the day of Schiavo’s death – as “Terri Schiavo Day.”

Greene says Schiavo deserves to honored with a national holiday because “she was a fighter to the very end and proved she wanted to live by staying alive for 14 days without a feeding tube.”

Although the annual holiday could be solemn for some, Greene says others can celebrate by holding picnics honoring Schiavo.

Greene says “celebrating Terri shouldn’t be a divisive issue” and believes if her husband, Michael Schiavo, “truly loves her, he would be supportive.”

Greene will officially unveil the “Terri Schiavo Day” campaign on Friday (Apr. 8) in Washington, D.C.
