Small Town Jersey City—a Lemonade Stand with some really yummy looking cookies. Proceeds of the sales are designated to an elementary Charter School in the neighborhood, I forget the exact name. Small town vs. city neighborhood, there is really no difference in these communities. I guess that is why they're both called communities. What each share are values worth cherishing. The lemonade was delicious and only 50 cents a cup! Did you make the lemonade? The girl pointed to the woman. She did, but I made the cookies! Unfortunately the cookies are not on my diet this afternoon. A woman (not in picture), her mouth full of cookie said, they’re not on mine either! Sometimes some things are not worth resisting. Their future: 10, 15, 20 years from now, when they get out in the world some and meet friends and relatives of their generation who grew up in rural and suburban America they’ll all have Lemonade Stand stories to trade. Lets hope they can trade them with kids who grew up in other cities.
