before the parade to River City Garden was ready to step off.
Gossips managed to get ahead of the parade and was waiting for it at Allen Street. As the marchers approached, a vanguard of boys on bicycles sounded the warning, "An anarchist parade is coming!"
When the parade reached the other side of town, the marchers in the lead were chanting, "Kids will save the world!"
At the end of the march, everyone enjoyed lemonade, watermelon, and strawberries, and staked out the garden markers they'd carried with them across town.
Gossips came away thinking these kids just may save the world. The frightening truth is they're going to have to.
