CHILDREN TAKING A STAND 'TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE'

Sept. 21, 2001 – Alec, who's 6, and his sister Jewel, who's 4, have been hand-painting American flags at their home each evening this week. On Saturday, the children of Amy and Harold Tayler will have a makeshift lemonade stand set up with the 18 flags, lemonade, cookies and brownies for sale.
They also will be selling yellow ribbons, to be worn or displayed in honor of the children of the victims of last week's terrorist attacks on the U.S. mainland.
Every penny they collect will be turned over to the American Red Cross, to assist children of those who lost their lives in the attacks or in responding to them.
The youngsters will have their stand set up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the shady area across from the main entrance to Mahogany Run on St. Thomas.
"Children can make a difference," Amy Tayler said, "if given opportunities."
