Thanks to the many friends, young and old, human and canine, who walked with me today in the Mill Valley Memorial Day Parade, and to the hundreds of people who gave Team Huffman such a warm response along the parade route!  I drove an electric “switch” vehicle today, which was also fun.  (Photos by Elliott Carlin).

Happy Memorial Day to all.  On this day, we continue the long tradition of remembering and honoring those who lost their lives in military service to our great country.  In recent years, technology has saved the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers who would have died from their injuries in prior wars, but they are returning home with severe physical and psychological damage and they deserve our support.  Even with breakthroughs in medical science and more targeted weapon systems and strategies, war is brutal and horrific—for those directly in harm’s way, and for those who are displaced including the millions of refugees created by recent wars.  As we solemnly thank those who sacrificed for our country, let us also reflect on the terrible cost of war—and the importance of avoiding it whenever possible.

Nice in-depth piece in the PD on the historic ranches and dairies in the Point Reyes National Seashore.  I’m fighting to preserve these ranches and dairies as a working landscape mixed in with wilderness and recreation areas—part of what makes the Seashore so special.
