Robin Warren, also Wild Horse Robin, has been fighting for the wild horses and burros for three years, at least. That means this young lady has been fighting for wild horses and burros since she was 8 years old. I don’t know any politician that would take for granted Robin and Declan’s testimony to them; and their testimony is their desire for the horses and burros of this land not to be slaughtered. To take care of them and to be responsible and accountable for our actions as adults means that we leave a better world for them to inherit. This is wisdom and knowledge from Robin, who by any rights as an American citizen who is accountable and responsible as her actions have proven, and honesty, courage and respect she carries with her. I hope the politicians of this day realize that there are young people who are preparing themselves to make decisions as adults by educating themselves accordingly. We should expect nothing less from the adults we call politicians. We support you, Robin, and we are sure your voice will be heard, we are listening!
