Letter from Ellie about "Slaughter-house pig tries to escape"

Dear Kiley,

Thank you for your letter to the editor.

I agree totally.

I hope this small measure of support from me will counter any wrong-thinking responses you may get.

Thank you for your good work and good works and good heart.


Dear Ellie,

Thank you so very much for your kind words about my letter, and expressing your support.  No, I haven't received any hate mail from it, though I do get some in general (I have a small animal protection group) so hearing something positive always helps.

This was such a terrible story that haunts me still...hopefully this animal's suffering will lead to good changes in people's perceptions, habits, etc.  I hope, somehow, that poor animal knows we cared about her.

Have a blessed holiday,

Kiley Blackman
