Now, if they ask me why, that's harder. Because when it comes naturally and you just can't stand it and you are passionate about something and if you have that type of personality, then it's hard to explain to somebody who isn't. Who says, "They'll do it, the Federation will do it." Of course, they do a tremendous amount. Or, "Marillyn will do it or Lois will do it or this one will do it." Be a part of history, be a part of history. But again, if they say, "But why?" I can't explain why, except look, "It will enrich your life. It will help your people. It will continue the Jewish people."
