**A note from Makendra: The Unified Moratorium Letter was again sent to President Obama via certified mail today, this time with 12 pages of names of supporting organizations, ecologists, authors and celebrities. We’ll continue to fax this letter to the White House and to Congress weekly.
In this time of incredible suffering and natural disaster, we still must share our attentions to the wild horses and burros that we are losing, potentially forever, off our public lands in the American West. Please continue to demand a moratorium on all roundups. Our tax dollars and efforts in this country need not be focused on further destruction but on reclamation for both our global community and our own neighborhoods. Thanks to everyone for everything you are doing for the brave and remarkable people of Haiti, the wild horses, the burros and your own families and everything else you are working to help, protect and preserve, rescue and reconstitute. Keep up the amazing work on all fronts. Thank you, Makendra
