9-year-old's birthday wish is for peace in Baltimore

Charlize Mason turned 9 years old on Tuesday. She lives in Baltimore, not far from where the riots broke out on Monday.  

"Today is my birthday and I got a big, big cake at the house-- and I want to eat it so fast," said Mason. 

Sometimes on the eve of your 9th birthday, you see things that you shouldn't have to see. 

"They was like burning up houses and beating up the police and all that other stuff," said Mason. "I think they should stop. Stop this mess because it is bad-- and people could get hurt and killed." 

Sometimes even on your birthday you feel nervous. 

"I'm scared a lot," said Mason.

"What scares you?" asked FOX 5's Beth Parker. 

"If they burn my house down," Mason said. 

For her birthday, Mason said she wants a new bicycle, and for the grownups to "Stop all this mess."
