    Thanks for the concern. It's hard to be positive when one is so dependent on others. I so appreciate the care& concern of others - the notes to me mean much. Thank you. I hope to get to know y'all soon. I'm hoping I can make some difference. I love animals & will do my best for them.

    Yes, we made an impact speaking up about the horrors inflicted on all the intelligent, emotionally and physically abused circus animals!

    I wish I could help even a little, but I had surgery today & Dr. says I can't do much for 2 weeks. Bummer. Glad to hear the protest has gone well thus far. Rose

    It was encouraging to see the low number of circus patrons -- in years past people were coming from every direction and the lines were very long. Had no trouble finding a parking spot which is indicative, I think and hope, of the dwindling interest in circuses which use animals. Thanks to AVA for organizing and for being consistent and persistent! :-) thanks to all of you for coming out and for being kind not only to animals but to the misled human families heading into the civic center. Namaste'

    Many thanks to everyone who stood out in the hot sun today. We actually motivated a few people to change their minds and walk away. Thank you to the young man who wore the elephant head and let himself be 'beaten' by the bullhook. This is Ringling's last visit to Asheville!

      Dianne told me there was a contract signed by the city for next year. Hopefully, no more after 2015. See you next year in the elephant suit! < : )
