So my son's lemonade stand was just robbed. The robbers were slightly older kids. They flashed a gun, but we don’t know if it was real or not. Not sure what to think.

I will say this: While I am disgusted and alarmed, I was comforted and encouraged by the police officers and the community. The officers worked hard to put us at ease and to do their job. Most of them bought lemonades which more than paid for the money stolen. Meanwhile, passers by stopped and bought lemonade, encouraged the boys, and one guy even went end bought a bunch of candy and chips for them to sell. Between the police and the community, the boys left with more money than what they would have had. More than that, we all left feeling loved instead of only violated.
