Meeting Mark Kelly

Mara B is home with her paddock pals Holly, Spice and Puma.

Not only am I a proponent of equine therapy, I also support efforts to reduce gun violence. Today I had the unplanned opportunity to meet Mark Kelly, husband of Gabby Giffords, who with Gabby formed the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. This organization also educates the public about suicide deaths with guns.

It was very emotional to personally thank Mark Kelly for this critical work, and present him with a Benjamin coin. You can learn more about the important work they are doing at https://lawcenter.giffords.org/

Please ride along.

Hope For The Day.org

Welcome to 2019, we would like to start the year by introducing you to hftd.org. Hope For The Day is an organization shattering the silence of stigma around mental health and suicide.

Mara Moments is a therapy for my own mental health/emotional wellness, as much as it is for sharing Mara B as a therapy horse with others. Thus I feel it’s important to start this new year with highlighting the difficult topic of suicide and the importance of talking about mental health issues.

Jay and I have become hftd.org “Agents of Impact” and want to make our readers aware of this organization. We hope you investigate it further or share information about it with others who may benefit at the start of this new year.

Wishing you and yours peace when things are uneasy, growth in the unfinished and wellness in the becoming, ahead of us in 2019.

Happy New Year

Sincerely, Helen
