Well, those people that were trying to hang on to the airplane getting out was a memorable image of how bad people wanted to get out of Afghanistan. It reminds me a lot of our own escape from the country… It might be a tougher time to come now. I think there was a little bit more openness to the refugees in the 80s. I think the climate sort of changed a little bit with this anti-immigrant sentiment and different economic conditions. So it’s much different than when we came here, I think there was a little bit more openness towards the refugees… It takes a pretty dire situation for them to leave their homeland.
