  1. With a couple of pauses for Viet Nam and college at the University of Tennessee, I was raised in Miami Springs from 1950 to 1973. I just wanted to say to the people of Miami Springs and to the current generation, thanks for keeping it the bright and beautiful city I remember. I know lots has changed, but having been in and out of there in the last few years I am still proud to call it home. Just like hurricanes, floods Everglades fires and Covid-1, the people of Miami Springs, as they always have, will overcome all of it. Seems as if, no matter the language you speak, your ethnicity, or city of origin, When you come to Miami Springs, you become a “Miami Springer.” Cheers to all of you folks…from another one of you folks.
