Well, you know, it's easy to say there's a group of people planning an amazing project in Medora, but I think what is really happening Is The thing that stuck with Theodore Roosevelt when he was here, the feeling you get in the badlands that Ty and his family had, um, I think the world is tapping into that right now. And that's what hooked the group from around the nation working on the Theatre Roosevelt Presidential Library right now, and that's why they're here today. That's why they're they're saying this is the place. To honor the legacy, toe, learn and experience and connect with Theodore Roosevelt, his time here and his time ah as president as mayor. As the rough rider and, Ah It's easier than to say, and now they're looking at designs. What's really driving that same feeling? That tie just explained in the badlands connecting to this place, and there's something special that You can put your finger on a handful of the components of but you can't coy express all the time perfectly. That's what's happening is people are connecting to Medora for positive life changing experiences. And one of the incredible things that's going to happen very soon as one of those experiences is going to be the on ly Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in the world. No, that's just wrap your mind around. That isn't what 15 of these type of facilities in the entire world. But there's only one Theodore Roosevelt Presidential library and the fact that would be there what I get most excited about. Honestly. I mean, I think I love presidential libraries to the history part of it and bringing that all the life in the in the fashion that you can in a facility like this. This is just, you know. Unlike anything, even in our state at all. When you talk about museums really incredible with ease how they are, but I just like the fact that a lot of people are going to be taking the Madurai exit off of I 94 And the numbers are going to continue to grow and grow and grow on that experienced I had with his family will grow and expand and bring the park itself upto numbers that align with other park. Right, Justin Yeah, I think there's going to be too really incredible things that happened. You touched on the first one. The economic The impact of western North Dakota is going to be incredible.

The economic opportunities going to be incredible, and the other thing is something that's harder toe grasp in some way, but The feudal Roosevelt Presidential library. Is going to be a digital library for an analog president. You're not on Lee going to be ableto come to Medora, an experience connection with the president. Right here, but you are also going to be able to connect with him all over the world. And it's an incredible thought that the presidential library group is talking about..
