[She] enjoys the exhibit, misses her father when she watches it, is sort of wowed by the depth, is blown absent by the performances of our young actors like Quincy Isaiah and Solomon Hughes.

And then I confirmed her [the ending which aired], and she teared up viewing equally the scene with her and her father, and the achievements that all people went on to attain, such as her. I know it is productive since the human being that was in the area exactly where it took place was impacted by it. But, once more, it was not exactly where we required to land.”
