Unscramble the Blue Letters

These people have been through a lot and none of us, most of all me, helped them when they were on the verge of destroying each other. We're undoing that now, and they are so over it and so into their fruute. We're doing this in an environmentally responsible way. I'm doing my best to convince them not to run the electric grid to the 35 percent of the people that have no access, but to do it with clean energy. To have responsible reforestation projects, the Rwandans, ieittlrensgny enough, have been quite good, Mr. Wilson, in preserving their topsoil. There's a couple of guys from southern famrnig families — the first thing I did when I went out to this palce was to get down on my hdans and knees and dig in the dirt and see what they'd done with it.
