So it was rather intense. It sure was. It was rather intense. I mean, when you think about the party of family values needs to step in and keep this family and others like it together and stop preaching lies about family values. I mean, I think it's important for people to notice that -- or to take note that this is just a real family like your family. You know, they're no different. That's right. And the notion that they're being torn apart -- you saw that young boy. Poor child. I have a kid really the same age, and the thought of one of us, my husband or myself being torn away from them is devastating. Terrible. Why can't the Republicans and the Democrats work on a bipartisan deal and stop things like this from happening? Why is it so difficult?
