Remembering Mary Nash

Please take a moment out of your day tomorrow to honor the memory of Mary Nash.

Julie Caramante sent the following message to a small group of us on a google group. I wanted to share it with you to let you know just how important Mary is to each and every one of us that is fighting to end horse slaughter. Here is link to one of her impassioned speeches 
Tomorrow will be the five year anniversary of the death of a great woman named Mary Nash. It is unbelievable that she has been gone this many years. Mary, as most of you know lived in Kaufman, Texas where the Dallas Crown horse slaughter plant was located. She fought tirelessly to end horse slaughter and also started the horsemeat website.

I first met Mary back in 2003, in Austin, Texas when we were fighting HB 1324. I knew instantly that she was not only an incredible person, she was an extremely smart no nonsense kind of woman. This bill if it had passed, would have changed state law to make it legal to transport horsemeat in the state of Texas. Thank goodness it didn't pass, because Texas Ag. Code 149, is what eventually ended horse slaughter in the state of Texas.

Because of Mary's efforts we have a lot to be thankful for. Please think of Mary tomorrow. She was truly a warrior for the horses.
