I am looking out my kitchen and I see the beautiful light from the Beacon shinning so brightly on Mt Diablo. Thank you so much to all that worked hard on this effort to bring this important part of our history back to life. You should all be so very proud of ensuring that the future will not forget the past.

If only the people who raise that giant American flag on Hopyard Road would be more patriotic. The Flag is up 24/7 rain or shine without regard to how to respect the flag. No half mast just raises the flag and leaves it.
