Introduction: [00:00:00] Welcome to the #PirateBroadcast™, where we interview #interestingpeople doing #interestingthings. Where you can expand your connections, your community, #kindnessiscool and #smilesarefree. Let’s get this party started.

Raquel Borras: [00:00:10] I love it.

 Russ Johns: [00:00:11] We were off in a deep conversation and catching up from life and I just wanted to say, thanks for being here.

Raquel Borras: [00:00:19] Thanks for having me again.. I love being a repeat offender.

Russ Johns: [00:00:22] Yes. The fun loving criminal. And it's really interesting because you've been doing some fascinating things and why don't you share for those that haven't followed you recently what the exciting news... you've got some announcements coming up, Raq so let's share some secret knowledge and pass it along.

Raquel Borras: [00:00:39] I don't know what secret it is, but  not so secret. So RaqVision, which I know all of you WandaVision fans out there probably like really Raquel? Yes, really? You can blame it on Jason Liebowitz. He's the one that came up with that. I don't even know last time we spoke. I think when we spoke, had I even done Raq the Boat yet?

Russ Johns: [00:00:59] No, no you had not started it.

Raquel Borras: [00:01:00] I was like promoting, I think my business, cause I had gone out on my own. There's a lot that's been going on, but like you and I were talking about it's putting in the work, showing up every day and really just working. So I wrote, I feel like finally, all the seeds that I've planted, all the flowers are starting to bloom and I'm starting to see, like I said, my fruits of my labor. But so Raq the Boat, I started a YouTube channel where I'm having just candid conversations with kids. And the reason why I started was because with the pandemic, I felt like our kids were the ones that were really suffering. Obviously, we adults as well. But I think we were losing sight of how the kids were dealing with all of this, because you have the pressures of social media already. And then suddenly you add a pandemic where they can't see their friends. They can't be social, they're being isolated. They don't really know how to deal with that. And so I thought, if we don't pay attention to our youth and we don't nurture them and really listen to them, we're going to be screwed because I think a lot what was happening too, was like with the Capitol and everything. And I was like, hi, we're going to just raise a bunch of like wild wolves if we don't do something. It just really hit me in this way where I was like, all right I'm just going to start having conversations with kids and see where it goes. And I want it to be as just raw kind of, just spontaneous off the cuff, just organic conversation. I wanted to prove to people that it's really not that difficult to talk to anybody 18 or under, if you're older. So I would just press record and I tell the kid, I said, listen, are you okay with me just hitting record us talking? They're like, sure. And these are kids that age range like from six to 18. So I hit the record button and I just started having conversations. And I just realized that these kids not only were they so willing to open up and so engaging and insightful and intelligent, but that they are all wanting to give back and change the world and make an impact. And they're just  so self-aware, so if anything, it really surprised me for sure, in a way where I was like, gosh, we have this narrative that we're doing around our kids that like, oh, they're all lazy. They're entitled. They don't want to do anything. They don't want to have to work for it. And the more I spoke with these kids, I realized that's not really the case. There's plenty of kids out there that are like kicking butt and not only that I realized too, the commonalities that we had, like the generational gap is really not as wide as we think it is. Like when you start talking to these kids, they have the same emotions that we do. They still want to feel worthy. They want to feel like they deserve things. They want to feel seen, heard all of the same things that we do, they have fears. And so if you go down, not necessarily to their level, but if you go to that level and say, hey, I can relate to you. I might be 45 years old, but I know what you're feeling and I'm feeling that way, even now as a 45 year old woman. And so then you're validating them. And so I could sense that these kids were walking away, feeling really confident with themselves because they felt like, wow, here's an adult that's listening to me. She's engaging with me. She cares what I have to say. And so I just continue to do... I think I just recorded episode 39. So in six months I've done 39 episodes, which is really cool. I've had all around the world. So then Jason Liebowitz, with XXO connect and his form that he started, he and I have been friends and we've been talking and he's been wanting to create a kids network, have basically a kid's platform that is powered by XXO. And so he reached out to me finally, just a couple of weeks ago. This is not long ago. We worked fast. He said, Raquel, you're the person that needs to do this. And I'm like, do what? And he's you need to build out the kids network. He's like with Raq the Boat and everything you're doing, you can take this thing to a whole different level. And we came up or he actually came up with RaqVision and now it's a safe space. So it's a youth social network. So just like XXO connect, you have to have a membership to be in it. And you really feel like you're in a safe community. You can open up and really connect with other people in a way where you feel like it's okay. It's not like random social media where you'll hop on in and you got so excited, bullies and people being mean it's just a different mindset. And so it's the same for the kids. And I already have the most incredible people on board that are going to be facilitating these conversations with our kids...

Russ Johns: [00:05:30] I saw your your list.

Raquel Borras: [00:05:32] Yeah. So we're going to have a masterclasses if you will, and not only that I'm going to create like a book club and an art club and a music club and a writing club. And then the Raq the Boat episodes can be on that platform as well. So I want it to be a place where these kids hang out and they walk away feeling empowered, inspired, they feel motivated.  They're educated as well. I want it to be all positive, but I also want at the same time, like the tagline is Raq the realness. I want us to be able to have conversations in there. So we're going to talk about everything from LGBTQ community, for racism, from diversity, sexual assault, sexual harassment, because these are things that kids are actually dealing with. I think we have to stop ignoring and trying to protect our kids so much that we ignore that they have access to everything on the internet. So they're already learning everything. And if we don't step in as at least like responsible adults and be like, hey, we know what you're listening to, what you're watching, but let's have a constructive conversation around it, as opposed to you just like following people on Tik TOK and educating your school. Like you talk influencers and just assuming that somebody a certain way cause you see them like that and said let's say for instance, with LGBTQ community, I would love to have someone that is for instance, non-binary or transgender and facilitate a conversation and educate and explain, and then have the kids be able to ask questions, but questions in a way where they're not being judged for it because let's be honest, a lot of us are still very uneducated in many ways and a lot of us are scared to ask the questions cause we think we're going to be judged for it.  And so I want these kids to feel like they can have those conversations there, or even, towards racism and have those conversations on there as well. And just feel like, okay, wow, I have peers that feel the same way, or I have peers that have a different perspective and they're showing me a different way to look at things. Or I have them actually talking to someone that's transgender or maybe I was stereotyping them or maybe I was assuming that they were certain way. And now I'm seeing that's not the case. Like I really just want to open up these kids' minds.

Russ Johns: [00:07:39] And I think it's important for us to understand that.

Raquel Borras: [00:07:43] Sorry, I was just like, starting to see people hop in.

Russ Johns: [00:07:45] Yeah, we've got some people in the room. Let's shout it out. Cathi Spooner, hey, everyone in the room right now, we're going to give away three months worth of XXO to a winner.  I got a system here that I can actually do a giveaway now.  I'm going to bring people in and I'm going to have them donate some stuff to the #piratenation. So pirates, stay tuned, stay on and stay connected. And you need to type in the hashtag pirate nation. And a real give away some things and you can connect with Raquel and do some great stuff together. Cathi's here. Good morning, pirates. Russ Hedge. Good morning, Raquel. Tracie, love my producer here.

Raquel Borras: [00:08:31] Tracie okay. I recognize her.

Russ Johns: [00:08:33] Raquel. You're doing awesome things. Yes.

Raquel Borras: [00:08:36] Russ introduced me to an awesome young lady who's going to be a part of the platform too. So Ashley Lynn, for instance he made an introduction. She's a senior in high school, out and I think I want to say Oregon. She got into university of Pennsylvania, but she's taken a year off because she just wrote a book called the Youth Organizer. And she's all about digital community building. And she's created her own little nonprofit and I don't want to say little, it's little. It'll be big, sorry, Ashley, I didn't mean to diminish what you're doing, so she started a nonprofit and here she's publishing her book, I think in August it's coming out. And so she was on Raq the Boat, and then I said, you know what, Ashley? I would love to have you be a part of RaqVision and facilitate calls because, I am getting like the age group of 18 to 23 to 24 to also facilitate these conversations. Cause I think that's where the kids are going to obviously relate to someone. That's not that much older than them and she's on board. So she's going to be doing an online community building series. And so thank you, Russ. So that's how I'm meeting a lot of these people is just, people will be like, hey, talk to this person, talk to that person. So any of you listening, think that maybe yourself or know somebody that would be great to be on this platform and to to help our youth please reach out to me because the more the merrier.

Russ Johns: [00:09:55] Yeah. And the funny thing, I want to go back to what you were talking about earlier, because talking to kids is a fascinating subject, and also I've had some experience with this. What was your most eyeopening conversation that you had? What was something that really struck a chord that you didn't realize, or you hadn't thought about, or you hadn't considered previously?

Raquel Borras: [00:10:20] That's a really good question. And I know I've had some of those, but of course, like now I have a brain fart. So thanks.

Russ Johns: [00:10:26] You'll figure that out. Marcia, Monday morning magic. Absolutely. Thank you so much for being here. And Cathi says, great point about the pandemic and the last crazy year for kids because they rely on adults in the sense of safety and stability, which got turned upside down and created instability for them. Absolutely.

Raquel Borras: [00:10:46] Yeah.  So something that I did that I really do appreciate, and it just, once again, it goes back to the whole thing where people say children are really resilient. They really are incredible because I was talking to some of these kids in the height of COVID and they still were just like so happy and still being kids and still figuring out ways to entertain themselves. And they didn't really let it get them in the sense where even on Saturday I had a conversation with a six-year-old in Mumbai, India. This kid. And he discovered drawing because they're on serious lockdown. They're like, you can't even walk out and walk down the street. And yet he still was so happy. His energy was just amazing. I could feel his energy and his mother was so sweet and they were just so appreciative that I was talking to them and so grateful. And he was focusing on drawing and watching his movies. It's just amazing that they don't let certain things get to them, like we do. They don't complicate things like we tend to do as we get older. I think that's something that I also was like very eyeopening for me were a lot of these kids are very creative, like so creative and a lot of the boys love to draw and love art. And so there's something along the way. There's something that happens as they get older, that all of that. It basically isn't nourished. So it's either forgotten or no one's really encouraging them to continue that. There's that path where they're like, ah, that's not going to make me money. That's not going to bring me success. That's not going to do anything for me, so now let me go down to the IT path or the Accounting path. And so that's something that I really noticed. And I'm like, where is all this creativity? Where does it go that it disappears at some point? What are we doing that we're not actually focusing more on it and we're getting rid of it?

Russ Johns: [00:12:35] It gets stuffed into the back room next to the storage shelf because it's not the roadmap that society has imposed that it's successful in a lot of respects, but creativity is really a piece of the fabric of it, the life we live in. It's so important for kids to be able to be creative and also adults to be creative. We're doing something creative right now, I feel. And Raq the Boat or whatever it happens to be, it has a place in our society. It has a place that has to take place. And the challenge though and I want you to speak on this from the kid's perspective is that social media only gives us a slice of the best things in life. So just like learning how to play the piano or learning how to play an instrument. The first notes are terrible. We don't know what we don't know, so we don't know what to do next. And then we see all these people that had done it for years and the accumulation of years of experience of practice and everything else. And then we measure ourselves against that and we all feel like failures at some level. So what kind of impact has that had on the kids from that perspective?

Raquel Borras: [00:13:51] That's something that, so now that I'm listening to you. I'm like, okay, that's another one that was like an opener for me. How many of these kids do not even want to be on social media. There was a 13 year old, Sierra, her mom and I were sorority sisters. She just got a phone for the first time, so she's never even been on social media, Instagram, all of that stuff. Cause she understands how toxic it is. So there's a lot of kids that are very aware of the toxicity that comes behind social media. Cause they know that their filter, they know that it's all the pretty stuff and that's conversations that I've had. On Saturday, I had a conversation with a senior in high school and she's like, I basically see right through that. This is all, it's the highlight reel. We all talk about that. But for a senior in high school to totally understand that and be like, that's why I stay away from it because I know it's not real. And I know people aren't showing the other side, the side where they're having a bad day or they don't look the greatest.  They're not choosing to show that. And so that's what's really surprised me, too. I really feel like we underestimate these kids. And that's where I feel like we're doing them a disservice. And that's why for me, it's so important to have these shows and to showcase them and to do this network because I really feel that we need to just  listen better and just really hear them out because even a lot of those kids say that adults could really learn from us.

Russ Johns: [00:15:06] Is so true. That is so true. It's the adults that tend to derail them with their own insecurity, their own insecurities.

Raquel Borras: [00:15:13] Yeah. The parents oh, it's like the parents past trauma or their insecurity, so then they put that on their kids and it's just like this cycle that happens.

Russ Johns: [00:15:24] I want to remind everybody that you need to type in pirate nation because we're going to be giving away some subscription to XXO Connect.

Raquel Borras: [00:15:36] Yes. So you'll get to do a three month free membership over on XXO connect. With that membership, if you have 10 kids, they all are going to be free under that membership. Whether you have one or 10 kids it's the kids are free under the XXO membership. So when I say create a safe space, we truly want to create a safe space, meaning that an adult has to sign, do parental consent or guardian consent. And that way I can basically monitor who's on RaqVision. So if there's a kid that comes in not being so nice and maybe doing the cyber bullying or not being a good person on that platform, I can go back to whoever signed for that kid and be like, hey mom or dad? Unless your child behaves, we can't have them on this platform because  it really is about having a safe space. And so that's why we have it set up that way. It's not like a Tik TOK or an Instagram or anybody can just do it. It's a protected, safe space.

Russ Johns: [00:16:35] If you're a parent and you want or you're someone that knows parents that have kids that need to have an outlet  for conversation, learning about some positive impact stuff like that.

Raquel Borras: [00:16:49] I have Michael Ray. Michael Ray is going to be part of the platform. So what he's doing is he has a kindness club. So it's going to be cool to be kind club and it's going to be focused on acts of kindness and being kind. And so we'll do yes, it is super cool. So we're going to do that and  every week he'll facilitate like a call and maybe we'll do like friendly competitions where whoever had the most random acts of kindness that week will give them something or do, I don't know, we'll do something special. But those are the type of groups that want to have as well. So I want to have everything on there. I want it to be all inclusive. I really want it to be a place where kids want to hang out. And so what's cool is XXO connect  is that, but for adults. So on XXO connect, you have a bunch of masterclasses. You have some amazing people on that platform as well, that are facilitating really cool group conversations. I'll hop on every now and then, and we  have some fun conversations. Cause we go into talking about relationships and dating and he's going to have a singles community on XXO connect, which is great too. Cause I think that even the dating apps, I want to have nothing to do with the dating apps, but I would love to meet other singles, but in a place where it's not all about the selfies and the swipe to the right or the left. So he's creating this community, which is just about getting to know the people and then whatever you want to do with that you can take it somewhere else. But as far as getting to know other singles, I would want to do it on the XXO platform. Hey Jenny.

Russ Johns: [00:18:15] Hey Jenny.

Raquel Borras: [00:18:16] She's great. So like we have a couple, Ryan and Danielle who were on the XXO connect, I'm also hijacking some folks and bringing them over onto RaqVision. Cause it makes sense. So they're the younger couple. Ryan is great because he's a guy that I think a lot of the young kids would be like, oh man, he's so cool. And he's a good looking guy, goes to the gym, like a guys guy, but at the same time, he's super vulnerable, very transparent, loves Danielle and the way they talk about their relationship and the way he talks about women and the way he respects her, I want to create those types of conversations for our kids too. Cause they're dating at a young age. Like these are 12, 13 year olds and they already have boyfriends, girlfriends. And so we want to create healthy relationships, healthy relationship with a guy.

Russ Johns: [00:19:00] It's really important to actually talk about that because you have to set the example somewhere and have to define what a healthy relationship actually looks like. And I think right now there's a lot of division in opinions in having  a strong opinion that everybody's wrong. I'm right and you're wrong. And it's not really that way. We have a different way of seeing things that I think we all need to learn how to understand to listen. And it's about engagement too. It's about how we can engage and involve other people. So we can see that diversity in opinions and diversity in views and perspectives and seeing how things are going, because that's what the #PirateBroadcast™ is about. Bringing #interestingpeople together to have this conversation and learn a little bit more about it and understand that things are not always as we see them. It's one of those things that we need to learn how to be a little more patient, a little empathy, a little  consideration there.

Raquel Borras: [00:19:58] Yeah. And like you said,  the reality is  life can be really hard and that not everything comes easily and that you really do have to work for things like we really do. And that's where I want to have those the kids on the platform. Yes, I want to inspire them and empower them and have them follow their dreams, but at the same time, I want to have those conversations of hey, you can do whatever and be whatever you want, but it's going to take work because you might not naturally be destined to be a doctor. And that's okay. But you have to understand that just because you want to be a doctor doesn't mean  you might end up being one. And if you don't like it, hey, there's other things that maybe you're really good at. And it doesn't mean that you're a failure. Doesn't mean all of those things of hey, like I'm 45 years old and I'm just now feeling like I'm starting to come into who I am and here someone might look at a 45 year old woman and think wait, you're still trying to figure life out and you're still making mistakes and you're still have all these bumps in the road.  Yes, because that's what it's like. Because once again, social media, they see a lot of these people show the success and they think it's A to Z overnight. They think that they're supposed to be entrepreneurs and millionaires by 25, so then when they're not, then they start doubting themselves and they start thinking what's wrong with me and oh my gosh, I'm a loser. I want to bring back those conversations too, because I think that we're doing our kids a disservice in that respect as well, making them think that things just are going to happen for you.

Russ Johns: [00:21:21] And I think it's a fantastic platform and  I love what you're doing. And I just wanted to express the appreciation for putting this out there and building this thing and I just want everybody in the pirate community to realize this. So type in pirate nation, and  I'm going to run a little program here at the end, and we're going to give away three months of membership to XXO and all of the things that you're doing and get engaged, get involved, be supportive of things that are taking place around us because  I think critical right now that we understand what is going on. And just like Amber says, kids have to be carefully taught to be insecure or to second guess themselves. They're naturally invincible.  They don't have any fear. They don't  risk creativity for judgment. And that's learned behavior, it's a behavior that's learned over time. In squash, like we sit in the back room, in the corner,  and it's let's start to cultivate that and start to put it out there a little bit more and allow kids and the youth to be a little more creative because we're going to need it. It's just a place that is really important for us to put it out there.

Raquel Borras: [00:22:34] Yeah. And you'd be surprised how many of these kids really do want to interact with adults and have those conversations. It's it's once again, we think because of technology and social media and their phones, that they really don't care, they don't want to talk to us.  They do. It's just, we rarely give them the space to do it. Or we rarely sit there and actually want to listen to what they have to say. And I think that's what I try to do with these conversations is show that, hey, I don't know this kid. Okay. I just press record and we have this beautiful 40, 45 minute conversation about so many different things, and it's only because I gave him the space and the time to do it and I was listening. So I want adults to be a little bit better about that. And I think too, a lot of these parents are realizing like, okay, you know what, maybe I should take the time to just sit there and ask questions and see what happens and where it goes. And that's another thing that I really loved is that these parents are seeing their kids talk to an adult maybe for the first time. Or like a stranger. Cause if you think about it, we aren't really following our kids around, seeing how they interact with adults or people out in the real world. And especially with the pandemic, these kids are isolated, so they're only interacting with their parents or just the teachers online. So for their parents to get to see their child have a respectful conversation. Cause every child, every kid, every person that I've spoken to has been extremely respectful. Extremely engaging. None of the kids have been rude.  It's funny how many parents warned me, oh, my child has ADHD. Good luck having them talk to you. They always talk to me or my child's really shy. Really introverted. Good luck getting them to talk to you. Perfectly fine. So what's happening too, is that they're really surprising their parents in the best way possible. So then the parents are  immensely proud of their kids. I have parents that message me like I'm crying right now. Oh my gosh, this is making me cry because the kids are saying these beautiful things about their parents or their siblings and things that they don't get to hear. And so I'm giving that gift to the parents. And so what's happening is they're looking at their kid in a different light, which I'm hoping that changes  their relationship for the better because then if they see their kids, wow, they're doing good.  I think I thought I was like messing up or I was failing as a parent, but no, I'm actually doing really good as a parent. Cause look at how my child is with this stranger, essentially. And so that's something that I didn't even think about when I started Raq the Boat, either, like how it was going to affect the parents.

Russ Johns: [00:24:57] So if someone happened to catch this episode and watch this episode, what would you want them to take away? Or what's the one thing that you would like to share on this episode today?

Raquel Borras: [00:25:12] Just to take notice of our youth and whatever you can do to contribute. It doesn't necessarily have to be, you have to be on a RaqVision platform, but just how you show up every day in the world. And if there's a kid or someone, maybe it's your child or a niece or nephew or a friend's kid, or just anything, just be a little bit more aware of how you're speaking to that kid how you're engaging with them because they're so impressionable and it's amazing how just giving them a little bit of attention and listening to them, what it does for their confidence, too. And then what they do with that confidence and how they show up to the world. Cause remember it's all a domino effect, right? So if we're treating these kids in a way where they feel like, oh my gosh, look at how I'm being treated. I'm going to go ahead and do that. Then that's how we're going to change the world. Like for instance, with these kids that are 18 to 24 and want to be on my platform as facilitators. Because they want to give back to these kids because they already feel like, you know what, I want to go ahead and empower them. That's what's so beautiful about this is just having a little bit more self-awareness of what you're doing and just how you're showing up on social media too, because these kids what are you putting out there? What are they consuming? Yeah, I just want people to just be aware a little bit more. We're a little too self-absorbed at times, I'm going to say,

Russ Johns: [00:26:32] Get out of your ego.

Raquel Borras: [00:26:34] Yeah. Let's remember, these are kids.  Just cause we're not going to be around for that long doesn't mean we can't still want to take care of the next generations.

Russ Johns: [00:26:43] I want to remind everybody I'm going to give... or I'm not going to give anything away.

Raquel Borras: [00:26:47] Jason Liebowitz, let him know, hey Jason, this is what I... he's gonna be fine.

Russ Johns: [00:26:53] And then here's the other thing, cause I know we gotta wrap up, however, I just want to remind everybody type in hashtag pirate nation and we're going to give this away and we're going to continue to give things away  on the #PirateBroadcast™. So jump in, share this information. If you found the #PirateBroadcast™ interesting, this is the reason why we do this is because there's a lot of things that we haven't considered out there and I just want to make sure that people like Raquel have a voice and opportunity to share this information and reach an audience that they may not necessarily be able to reach every day. So thanks for being here, Raquel.

Raquel Borras: [00:27:33] Thank you for having me. I always love seeing your face. You're one of those people that your energy and just your face,  it's hard not to light up inside, so thank you. You've made my Monday.

Russ Johns: [00:27:44] Oh, thank you so much. It says I hate to say it, but it reminds me of the Native American way. Not sure if it's good or bad thing, but for me it's a good thing.

Raquel Borras: [00:27:53] What do you say? What is he mean? Can you like elaborate?

Russ Johns: [00:27:58] The kindness and the ability to actually communicate without judgment, without measure, and really become part of a community because there's a lot of different cultures that are much more inclusive of what the perspective is for all. Okay. I want to, I'm going to try this.

Raquel Borras: [00:28:17] What's that like a wheel that you spin?

Russ Johns: [00:28:20] I'll show you what I got here. Let me share it with you. So anybody that's typed in pirate nation, I'm going to start collecting comments. It's a tool. Let me see, I gotta try this draw. Okay.

Raquel Borras: [00:28:36] But you have entries. Does that mean you don't have anybody to drop?

Russ Johns: [00:28:41] This is a new tool that I'm working on but  I have to figure out why it's not working though. Huh? All right. Start collecting comments. I wonder if I didn't cause I know D-roo typed in.

Raquel Borras: [00:28:56] There were other people that did it. Cathi did it.

Russ Johns: [00:29:01] Cathi did it.

Raquel Borras: [00:29:03] Hiett did it.

Russ Johns: [00:29:05] I'll have to figure this out now.

Raquel Borras: [00:29:08] All right. Jimmy jam, did it.

Russ Johns: [00:29:11] Yeah. Pirate Nation. Why is it not? I tried it earlier and it worked.

Raquel Borras: [00:29:19] By the way, the 17 year olds are awake. I can hear them downstairs.  I told you I have 4 teenage 17 year olds in my home right now. Watch I can sense that I'm going to go down there and my daughter's gonna be like, mom, can you get us Dunkin donuts? I  feel it.

I was going to say, I definitely would love to pick someone that will be able to take advantage of both the XXO platform and then their kids on the kids vision, RaqVision. We're going to go get our cars missed. Okay. See my daughter's already... I love how she's yelling at me from down stairs.

 Russ Johns: [00:29:52] Thank you so much, Raquel,for joining and sharing what you're doing.

Raquel Borras: [00:29:56] Thank you everybody!  Love you all.

Russ Johns: [00:29:59] Thank you so much and we'll  find a way to get a prize out to someone.

Raquel Borras: [00:30:03] Yeah. We'll figure it out.

Russ Johns: [00:30:04] Yeah. We'll figure it out. So thank you everyone. As always, #kindnessiscool, #smilesarefree, so you #enjoytheday. Take care. Bye.
