We have a parade in our little village each year called the King Mango Strut. The last Sunday of each year the town comes out and we parody everything that’s gone on during the year – local things, politics, etc. I write the daily news for our town called the Coconut Grove Grapevine, and nine years ago, the Grapevine was one of the things parodied as the “Gripevine” – since people always felt we were constantly griping about things, here’s a little of that here.
Anyway, here is some of this past Sunday’s 37th annual King Mango Strut.

We don’t like Rick Scott.
Did you watch the March For Our Lives event on Saturday? I’m sure you couldn’t miss it, there were demonstrations in 800 cites around the world. The largest of course was the Washington DC event.
If you watched, then you saw our new leaders. I don’t mean future leaders, I mean our leaders today, this is them! And you know what? I’m ready to be lead.
They say that the 1940s is the “Greatest Generation,” but I do believe that they have met their match. Today’s up-and-coming generation are people to be proud of. They are all inclusive, they are smart and they are determined. They are fighting for their lives. Literally.
It took these young adults to do what a handful of our leaders cannot or will not do. To listen to these 16 and 17-year-old speak and even 11-year-olds, was amazing and encouraging.
These kids are inclusive of everyone, they are making American Great Again. They are making America the way they want America to be.
Changes are coming and for the first time in a long time I am hopeful, very hopeful about our future.
