    It’s inspiring to see someone actively participating in change yet not trying to be a revolutionary themselves. The selflessness of such acts it magnificent.

      Horses seem to be able to help many people with autism. I’m glad she has been able to make that connection with ponies.

        Oh dear that must be hard. And hard for you as I know you can’t visit England to see your daughter and grandaughter.

    The activism of the 1960’s is back. Three cheers for all those peacefully protesting.

  5. My thoughts exactly…
    Viola above brings up a fantastic point: horses in their natural role as ‘healer’…hmmmm (I worked with Wounded Warriors via horse therapy so am using that term purposefully)
    Power to the people (and horses)!

      Wounded Warriors and horse therapy! That’s fantastic! I think horses have so much to offer as therapists and counselors ( in that they show us our true selves!). Thanks so much for this comment.

    How fabulous … the power of the people. The power of the people and horses combined!

    I recall a march in London we attended as a family. People must speak up for what they believe is right 🥂

      I agree and i have been concerned that people were not speaking up but the parkland shooting has sparked a flame! It is a shame that 17 souls had to pass for this flame to be lit but it burns stronger every day in their honor.
