Horses in Trouble

Earlier legislation made the slaughter of horses and the exportation of their meat illegal in the United States. That law has been circumvented by sending these helpless creatures out of the country–mostly to Mexico–for killing.

There is a bill coming before the Senate and the House that would put an end to this travesty, The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. It is VERY IMPORTANT that all of us contact our senators and representatives immediately. You can find them through www.USgov.org

Thank you.

My Friday Prayer

Lord, bless the beasts and the children. Bring the lost ones home to warm hearts and houses.

Bless the leaders; flood their hearts with compassion and their minds with wisdom. May they love peace, as well as justice.

Bless those among us who are sick or discouraged. Remind us of all the reasons to hope.

Bless those who travel, and those who stay at home.

Bless those who struggle, and those who prosper.

Bless those who are in pain, and remind those who are not to celebrate.

Bless the teachers, the doctors and nurses, the police and the firefighters and especially the soldiers. Bless all those who protect and serve, and so often go unsung.

Most of all, Lord, make us grateful.
