Said something he didn't like one day. Kanye. I'm not sure you're going to get in there. Kanye West announced over the weekend that he's running for president because he's got a new album coming out, and he has a new line of clothing at the gap that's going to come out. He signed a 10 year deal with Gap Worth. They expect it to do a $1,000,000,000 in sales, so he's like, Okay, What can I do, Teo? I'm running for president. And then the Internet took note of that and and invested way too much conversation in that, too. I saw actually Cem posts about that, and I ignored them because I thought they were just in reference to a few years ago when he made that announcement, right? And I didn't think much of it.

I mean, it was Helping kids go through some stuff at seven o'clock at night. For us. It was that last nine week unit it was the build up to the civil War in the Civil War and reconstruction.

I am married to a wonderful Korean individual who's never gotten to see that memorial on one of the things I could wait to tell her was about that memorial when I went with my eighth grade students About 10 years ago, I had my students do something that they didn't know those soldiers. If you walk around that pyramid, if you if you do this, there's at least one sold. You're looking at you and then that amazing and one of them. Yeah, their eye on you. And then when you get to the tip of that V and this is why I started to get emotional and think of her and show her father lost his whole family in the north when he was 13 years old. And I thought of him instantly when there is a bouquet of flowers that that apex sent from a small town of Korea once a week to thank us for our help. Think about that. I'm really glad you called. And lucky. The students that have somebody with your energy. It's nice of you to call in. And thanks for listening, Brian. Okay. Thank you All. Thank you.
