It’s just a serene and tranquil place, to just relax and enjoy yourself and leave your troubled mind and those things that irritate you in your heart and your soul, behind. And once you enter the gates, you’re just in a very wonderful, quiet, loving place. And there’s lakes, and you know, rolling hills and grass and trees and, you know, rides and trains,
I get to compensate for the loss, you know in my childhood that I never got to enjoy those child-like things, but it’s…it’s for everybody. And we have handicapped, kids with cancer, terminally ill children, leukemia kids… Make A Wish Foundation, Dream Street…we’ve been doing for like over 9, 10, uh…11 years.
Yea, and uh, I did it before at my mother’s house in Encino. We never wave a flag, we never try to get press for it. I do it quietly”
