Creating a community healing spaces. I'm reading spaces of empathy and safe spaces for a children's who find his refuge are right now. We have a lot of our babies in our arms. Young people in those that we are talking about. About that are these evil bass, or so to speak on what has happened, so then what have they been? It's also the leads to want manifest. This type of behavior is negative behavior to have such a negative impact on our communities. So how do we have those conversations with them about the trauma? They've been exposed to to where they are. Now I'm manifested in such negative behaviors and having such a negative impact on our families in our communities, and so I think that as a leader. That's a huge lift you know. You don't have one. Acidic solution however I do believe that if we become. Create, more trauma informed city, using that lands to be more empathetic and understanding about what we're saying and how we approach what we're saying in our communities. That's very. And obviously what you all do is a very huge lift. Ramon Hooks talked to me about what outreach workers do after incidents of violence to prevent more violence. Will we.
