VIRTUAL VIGIL

Do you remember the Virtual Vigil for Slaughtered Horses on our original website?

We started this mega popular vigil a long, long time ago on December 10, 2004 when our organization was little over a year old. You can still view it at the Wayback Machine website.

Since it is an archived page from our former site, you can no longer “light” a candle. Yet, it is still inspiring to scroll through and read the comments and where the people made them are from.

As a side note, the good folks at the Wayback Machine only archive the occasional image. Yes, interestingly the virtual candles remain and are still “lit”, intact and flickering.
