That they appear brother thinking this idiot and he or fewer. I'm in Germany and let them work and then how old she got in touch without backup now got a chance. You are open. And that quite quote. That you should separate the gonna flop says. Sheikh fact with Jenny called actually not. Finding can't because the structure well.

Let person or country track and actually let him for being too vocal chaotic scene they couldn't find them because. Russia no doubt that they show the local he would Padraig and Luke. And beat them personally. The outright ban do. And actually went. The Spectra that this planning and let the record I think I think it's gonna be talking into the afternoon. A little extortion cannot afford our. That's good shambles well it's Donna can I program rightly an ice ice set his earlier days raise 141000 dollars which is wonderful. Out of out of a 50000 dollar goal and we know there had been I think it's three million dollars that's been raised. For relief in Vegas but these families Donna. Think about this if this was short monitor you are now basically stuck in Las Vegas you can't work. You where are where it is today he's we were gonna have to get hotel rooms I mean. Just logistically it's going to be very. The more support the emotional cost ND. Actionable. Fiscal cost of being with her to see her through this recovery you cannot even imagine. And conduct well a lot of people and let god forbid. And it. You're in the situation you don't it's so hard to comprehend. What you to get ahead and very well at them very eloquently. And who were at. Other things that are intact in their twenties and but I can't secure a hospital or being in church. And people think medical built but beyond what looked at the sense that fortune we don't get. All the things that you just mentioned.

We saw on using the video Donna of people putting women and we'll barrels to disagree they're literally. You know cargo they were easy pieces of the sense that. The metal science so I hung from the family and I think that that would bring some measure of comfort to them to know because he whoever did that likely saved her life. About the brits let her life and and I can think he'd be back here route that I think our first and in it or anybody could anybody hit first and intricate black. On that note that the if you could direct the police thought a bird. I'm walking away from my one year old Cuban outfit but yet not all at the police officers.
