SULEYMAN: You know, it was really incredible to see how the community just took care of itself. My favorite thing’s seeing the Hispanic restaurants and the Latino community, yes they were helping their people, their community as well, but they gathered a ton of clothing and food and helped the Egyptian community. One of our local mosques was flooded also and just walking in and seeing volunteers of all backgrounds just cleaning the water out, I mean, literally, they’re like taking buckets and cleaning the mosque out and repairing it. And that was the scene of Nashville, that was Nashville everywhere you turned.
