Oh yes, hi. I would just kinda like future generations to know how important it is to be aware of who you elect to govern the country. 2020 has been an incredible year. There's been all kinds of change and turmoil. The United States chose to elect a neo-fascist government and choose greed over common sense. And we're in a situation where we have never been before. We are hated by the world. We aren't trusted. People think we only care about ourselves. And the past four years and particularly the past year has set our country back by decades. I just hope that future generations, when they see this they realize, I guess, that we realized our mistake and we corrected it by then. Very young country and we act like we're the biggest dog on the block. Anyway, thank you. I sure hope that we've figured ourselves out by now. Great.
