    This is a good reason for a community parade – to celebrate this accomplishment by this world class athlete.

    We can pause and thank all our competing athletes on the world stage this year with the Olympics and over the years.

    Flora can lead it off when she is next on island. It would be wonderful to see our politicians argue less – celebrate more!
