First of all disable the government in the short term if you're sitting at home just remember how you would feel there and realize that.
That those of us who were involved down there can take your ten dollars and put it with a ten dollars of millions of other people and immediately turn it -- to food medicine.
As shelter and -- clean water and distributed.
And that's what we have to do.
