    I have no advice to offer, only to ask you to keep up the work you’re doing.It is inspiring to see so many dedicated people stay in the battle by picketing and educating to end animal suffering knowing it can be so tough and frustrating.I think this one is going to end in success for the elephants. Thanks for your work!
