Community service is one of the tenets we teach at the CCC. It does connect them with the tragedy. They are begging to come with me, but it's impossible.

It's far from over and people are still in dire straits in a lot of the Gulf Coast communities. It may have dropped from our consciousness somewhat, but from talking to people in New Iberia, they are still desperate. Some still don't have running water.

I do want to make sure our process doesn't get in a situation where we start losing candidates. I don't want you to get somebody else's leftovers.
