Words of wisdom from a 9-year-old: "You should give help if people need it."

Samantha Stricker set up a lemonade stand in the driveway of her Saginaw Township home, with no intent of keeping the proceeds for herself. "I wanted to help somebody that needed the money more than I did," she told WNEM.

She wanted, specifically, to help a military family. That's when her mom found the story of Cameron Corder. He was injured in Afghanistan in 2013, and he is still waiting for his military benefits. He has a wife and two children.

Samantha decided to donate to Cameron and his family, saying that it's "better to give, rather than receive."

Well, don't I feel guilty for using my lemonade stand money to go to the movies when I was a kid! Secondly, it makes me sick that we can send our men and woman overseas to fight, but we can't take care of them when they get home. That needs to stop.
