Thank you so much for this RT...Left Declan Gregg a comment on his blog...a 9 year old and SO WISE! Blog at site on RT news Guys! Please take a peek at the page.

Wow, he is quite the articulate young man and to be excited to go to speak at the press conference on Tuesday March 27th is giving me Good Goosebumps, as well as renewed my Hope in our Youth...One Special Young Man that is not out playing games on the Computer, but putting his Computer and Mind to help the Horses!! WOW

I see that you "RT" had helpped him and he is so excited to meet you and I would love You RT to keep us up-to-date on what is happening. Had to laugh when Declan said alot of the people that are fighting for these Horses are Women. "It will be great to meet a man who is trying to stop this Evil" (You RT get to meet this Outstanding 9 year Old) Wow...He is Way Wise beyond his years.

Praying that this Young Man has a safe trip, and He may be able to do what many of us Adults have Failed to do ~ save these Horses...Politicans sometimes are affected by Passion of the Youth...and Declan has that Passion!

Way to Go Declan you make me want to fight even more for these Innocent Creatures who are just so special!
trying to type with wet eyes is quite hard!!!

Declan, what an amazing young man you are to take this on. I am so proud of you and I am sure you are being told this over and over. I wish you all the luck in the world when you take your letters and make your case. I'm sure there are many other young youths today that will look up to you and follow in your footsteps in speaking out about what is important to them. You are a fine example of what I hope many adults will even stand up and applaud you.....I know your peers will. Good luck young man. And don't ever stop fighting for your cause and beliefs.

Declan Gregg is one special young man that understand life & the fact that he is so alert at this young age to me indicates that no matter who you are, one can make a huge difference! It is in believing in yourself & achieving the goals set out! Anything is possible when you have your heart into making a change for the better! God Bless you Declan & may your success for horses change the way all animals are protected & respected. You are the change we all wish to see in the world. All great achievements begins with a dream. Thanks Marilynn for the forward. RTF for posting.

My thoughts and prayers are with you little man....and Stacie, declan's mother and Jo-Claire Corcoran for putting the whole children's letter writing campaign together.

Tomorrow they march to DC! God speed to save the horses from slaughter!

Pro-slaughter groups are trying to organize to biuld horse slaughter houses again....

WE WILL NOT LET THEM!!!!!!! Please everyone help. Write to your congressmen and women. Let them know that you support the "American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act" and if they are not a co-sponsor of H.R.2966 or S.1176....PLEASE LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU WOULD LIKE THEM TO BE CO-SPONSORS OF THESE TWO VERY IMPORTANT BILLS
