Everything has a person topple everything you know we work very serious about Marc -- When everybody around the time to stand with the severely. You know didn't this work you become went to work ethic every day. And most people who have become a different. Vote -- until the -- Some people enough time to almost. Not a suits and I think -- replace ourselves. That's changed in 1518 years younger guys coming in the mentality. I think so I think a lot has given horses are being. I think young guys with better. Not like they're saving the world. Of the new solution to a problem. For us in the room like no you're headed to the equation. Perspective is everything you know about. Most -- to discuss -- release. When we saw this coming to -- mosque that they don't know. In that. Being what you -- this a good thing I always said that it was everything because to teach.
