A delightful update: Last week, 5-year old, Jayden, put up her Pink Lemonade Stand For Peace, in front of Equality House, which happens to be across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church Compound. With her dad by her side (and a cavalcade of soldiers on motorcycles) she raised $400, in just a few hours, from supporters driving by. Since then, her online campaign has surpassed $21,358 in contributions. 100% of the proceeds go to a unique and worldwide effort called Planting Peace. What a wonderful story she now has to carry with her, for the rest of her life.
Earlier this week, down in Hell, the ever-hating Westobro Compound put a message on their marquee. It reads:
"Fags & Enablers All Burn In Hell. Lemonade Won't Cool Any Tongues"
Lovely people they are. Just lovely. I've made my online contribution. I hope she blows them out of the water her beautiful spirit of goodness, and her innocent touch of irony. I am truly inspired.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
