Honestly I just want to let them we're on now know how sorry I am for my actions and you know who's been a tough time min. I'm extremely embarrassed because of that video I was in our own arc and a you know took responsibility in you know made the right decision to. No fine the way it. That's not the excuse is nine Powell upon. That person in the video he did not deserve that I didn't. Meantime there anybody here and use anything like that and it is really tough.
