“I annually drag this excerpt out from our book, and this blog’s namesake, Straight from the Horse’s Heart as it is one of my favorites…and I have never known why it has a special place in my heart…until now.

Keep the faith my friends, the innocent lives of thousands are in our hands and hearts” ~ R.T.
