P��� 18  HORSES FROM PAGE 14 many wild horses are subjected to rough transport conditions on their way to BLM holding facilities. For more than 30 years, wild horses and burros had been pro- tected under the Wild and Free- Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971. These longstanding pro- tections were removed by the Re- publican congressional majority in 2006. As explained by The Wash- ington Post in a contemporary online item titled “The Story of Conrad Burns and Wild Horses”: “[U]nder existing laws and rules, wild horses may be delivered for free to people, who then can turn them around and sell them to third parties who may do whatever they want with them, even sell them for slaughter, because [BLM] has no interest in pursuing any sorts of in- vestigations into such conduct.” To put a stop to this, Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) and I intro- duced the Restore Our American Mustangs Act in 2009 to step up fertility control measures, encour- age more animal adoptions and provide up to 19 million additional acres on which more than 60,000 wild horses and burros under fed- eral control could roam freely. The bill provides a defi nition for the term “thriving natural ecologi- cal balance,” which appears in the THOUGHTBUSTER.COM By Coach Louise Rouse Change is all around us. People Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, but is not defi ned. The defi nition makes clear that management of horses and burros should seek to achieve bal- anced, multiple use of public lands, ensuring the health of all aspects of the range. The bill passed the House in 2009 but — we’ve heard this before — the Senate didn’t pick it up. We shouldn’t leave horse slaughter, public or private, in the no man’s land it currently occupies. This is something Congress should act on as soon as possible. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) is the ranking member on the House National Parks, Forests and Public Lands subcommittee.

Like the fl owers in the garden, everyday another person is blos- soming, awaking to their beauty. Yet at the same time some people are becoming more closed. You see change brings up hidden emotions. It can be kind of scary. The unknown without faith is sim- ilar to activating a “fi ght or fl ight” stress reaction. The body and mind are in survival, dis-harmony, or dis-ease. Like a bear protecting her cubs, one attacks. Only the bear has a reason to protect; the survival of her cubs. On the other hand, dis-harmony or dis-ease are caused by feelings and emotions, which one is not even aware that they are bothering them, leaving the person attacking without knowing the real cause. Right now energy and collective thought is moving at a much fast- er rate. Change is happening fast. People who are angry are becom- ing angrier, to the point of attack- ing others, often because they are afraid. Without the right frame of mind, you know there are many reasons one could choose to be in a state of fear these days. On the other hand, people who are becoming more positive and ob- serving the power of their thoughts, are feeling happier. They are making a difference in the world through their state of mind.
