Of all the stories I bring to you I am working on one that has given me some “food for my soul.” I have seen so much these last few years. Meetings that are an exercise in placation without intention of action. Roundup after roundup that often shows massive disregard for the premises laid out in the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act. Literally thousands of faces of those that lost their Freedom.
I have spent nights freezing at truck stops. I have learned to listen for “shower customer 5, your shower is ready.” I have learned how to exist with nothing in “the nothing” places of public land.
This story deals with a word and it’s meaning that have almost become lost from my vocabulary… “Home.”
Full story will be posted Monday night…
Still crafting doc’s (added a page that outlines what the Court case is looking for in Injunctive Relief on http://WildHorseEducation.org )and doing prep for roundup season that starts incredibly soon… but this is a story I can’t wait to bring to you.
