A 5-year-old girl from Kansas City, Mo., set up a lemonade stand across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church to send a message of peace and love.  

"As we all know, the Westboro Baptist Church puts a lot of hate into the world," said Aaron Jackson who owns the Equality House where Jayden Sink set up her lemonade stand. "Since we cannot stop them, the next best thing is to smother it with love. That is what 5-year-old Jayden accomplished today."

Jackson added: "Jayden set up a lemonade stand in front of the church. Not only did she quench the thirst of a lot of loving supporters, the money she raised was donated to Planting Peace so she could help Planting Peace promote a more peaceful world."

“Jayden represents the natural humanity we are born with," said Davis Hammet, director of operations at Planting Peace. "We come into this world compassionate, caring beings and only become hateful if we are taught to be.”
