In the wake of the slaughter of Dallas police officers at a Black Lives Matter movement protest, two young girls in the Dallas area decided to do what they could to honor the fallen and provide some meager assistance to the families of the victims.
According to WFAA, 11-year-olds Landry Nelon and Lauren Roach set up a lemonade stand in their neighborhood, selling small cups of the refreshing beverages to raise funds to donate to the police.
By the time their little entrepreneurial lemonade venture came to end after the weekend, the two girls found themselves standing in the lobby of the Dallas Police Association building on Monday, prepared to hand over what they had collected.
What had started off as a few dollars in a jar quickly turned into hundreds of dollars, and before too long, there were thousands in the hands of the girls. Once their church matched a portion of the earnings, the grand total equaled $10,000.
“20 gallons,” Landry told a reporter when asked how much lemonade they had sold. “We went through a lot of lemonade.”
“It’s feels good to know we are making a difference in people’s lives,” Lauren chimed in. “That makes us feel great inside.”

The Police Association gladly accepted the donation from the girls, and there is no doubt that the families of the slain officers hold an immense amount of gratitude to the two young girls who sacrificed their time and energy to try and help them out.
Most certainly the men and women in uniform appreciated the effort, as the selfless display of the girls proves an effective counter to the seemingly incessant anti-cop sentiment espoused by radicals, routinely found on social media and echoed by agenda-driven politicians.
Thankfully no overbearing bureaucrat came by to shut them down for not being properly permitted.
Hopefully others will follow the example set by these two girls, and do their own part to help support those who make a difference in their community.
