Natasha Richardson, the actress wife of Liam Neeson, was hospitalized with serious head injuries after a fall on a ski slope near Montreal.

News outlets in Britain report the English star was flown to N.Y.C. The daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and the late director Tony Richardson won a 1998 Tony for "Cabaret."

This is a very sad and difficult thing to go through. I also lost my son due to Brain Trauma/ Brain Death on 4/1/08. Its something so unreal. You see your Loved one laying there and it looks as if they are only sleeping. You are expecting them to just wake up at any moment because there heart is still beating and they are breathing (sometimes with the help of a respirator) so its hard to accept that they are gone. You hang on to every hope for possible recovery or even a miracle( IF THEY REALLY EXIST) and thats why it is so hard to let go and accept. I think that is what the family is going through at this time and that is why they are not speaking to the press to confirm that she is gone. I feel very sad whenever I hear stories like this because I know exactly what they are going through and nobody should ever have to be faced with such a tragic and Heart Breaking situation.

It is worth noticing that they removed her to an American hospital asap.

So, when obama socializes our health care, and it becomes like Canada - where will people go then?

Where will we go?
