"Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not."

Today we remember the champion Ruffian, a horse who possessed a raw, breathtaking talent for running and a bright line that shone at a time when everyone needed it to. She will be eternally loved and missed, and never forgotten. Her contribution to the sport still has us all holding in an awed breath. Rest in peace, sweet girl.
