I'm sure a lot of you went to a Memorial Day parade. We did too, sort of. As we do every year, we went to the Topanga Days Peace Parade. Since I think some of my readers may have never seen a peace parade -- one without gun-toting Marines and symbolic canons -- I thought I'd show what one looks like -- just a small town parade celebrating community and a call for peace. Before anyone gets up in arms at my "lack of patriotism," let me declare: I believe, with all my heart and soul and being that it is possible to honor those who have served, to offer memorial for those who have died, to pray for those currently serving, while still believing that war is not the answer. We may be a bunch of hippy freaks, but we have a unicorn!
