Eric Harr on Facbeook:

When I showed Vivienne what happened to those precious people in Oklahoma, she sat silently for about a minute. She looked me right in the eyes and said: “We need to make a stand for them.”

So, as we’ve done for 344 days in a row, we’re following her. Miss Vivienne is going to set up her little lemonade stand amidst the destruction. I have no idea what lies ahead, but I know it’s the right thing to do. A ray of sunshine and a helping of hope is what this world needs.
