One small ceremony for a Midwest town

Sheila Liaugminas

One major leap for universal human dignity. Participants in this ceremony to honor Baby Theresa probably thought it would go unnoticed. Found dead in a garbage bag April 29 near the Theresa Marsh in northeastern Dodge County, the newborn was buried here Monday in a 24-inch-long white casket, dressed in a pink, one-piece outfit and a white sweater. In such degradation, they redeemed this child’s humanity.
