Salem Radio's Carl Jackson Describes His Educational Journey

"Talking to crawl Jackson who identifies as a black man, and I want to respect that Carl. So I'm going to use the pronoun U, which is second person. For he, when I talk to you because you asked me to and I respect you. Yeah, your story is fascinating. So okay, you are starting to wake up. You're listening to talk radio. And you just were mentioning that you bumped into my amazing grace book, which came out I guess 2007. I don't know how that affected you. But how in the world did you bump into that book? I don't know where were you at in 2007? You know, I got to tell you, it just listening to more talk radio. I'm listening to Christian radio. I'm pretty sure I heard an interview of yours if I'm not mistaken. But anyway, I was prompted to get the book. I just wanted to learn more about it. The things that you were saying, I didn't know any of this stuff. I hadn't heard any of this stuff. I didn't know who William wilberforce was and I had never heard of the guy. And I got to tell you from reading, I read people like star Parker, Larry elder, Thomas, all Walter Williams. And I was learning all of this history that I had never heard of, and I got to tell you Eric, I got upset because I went through Los Angeles unified school district, and I felt like I didn't learn crap to be honest with you. I'm like, I never learned India. Look, I say the same thing everywhere I go, that everything that I have discovered. I think I mentioned it with the is atheism dead book. But the story of bernhardt for the story of wilberforce, the stories that I wrote in my book, if you can keep it about America, why doesn't everyone know this? Why did I learn this? It's kind of shocking when you realize it. And it does make you wake up and say, I need to tell the world, everyone needs to know this because if you don't know this, how can you possibly function or think clearly amidst the madness? But anyway, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has that response. Yeah, it was, you know, just reading more. It was obviously eye opening, and then as you read more and learn more, it becomes easy to figure out who's deceiving you and who's not whether it's radio, whether it's television, wherever or wherever it may be politicians. You know, it's funny to me, but reading, it is, it's true what they say. Reading takes you to a different place to a different world. And that's exactly what began to happen

"Book. But we're here to talk about your album. Tell us my friend. Confessio, this goes back to Irish American route. So you're in Nashville now, but you're from Ireland, and your wife is from Ireland. And talk and talk about the album, confessio, brand new album. Will you kindly interview us before sing global last year? We started the family him saying and did sing global all last year through the pandemic. And then we were honestly our heads were just fried. And so we went home for a year. So 7 days after 7 days after sing global, we flew home, 9 11. It's an easy day to remember, getting in a plane. On 9 11, we flew back to Ireland, and we stayed in Ireland for the whole year. Like John Lennox and C. S. Lewis and Allison McGrath and many other people who you know, we come from that tiny little north coast of Ireland and we spent the year there. And this album really is a love letter to that. You know, we, you know, we come from this place that Christianity is 17th centuries old that until the 1980s gave more missionaries per capita than any country in the world. South Korea and I give the most. And but also, but also this connection as you brought our four daughters who are all American citizens. He brought them back. We're all born in America. As he brought them back to their heritage and explained to them, here's been kind of donegal or John Newton's boat came in and he wrote, begun to write amazing grace. Here's here's where beat on my vision was written. And here's our culture and we began to realize that even as musicians that everything from country music to bluegrass to gospel songs to ship note hem the day to American and Appalachian music are all outgrowths of our own scotch Irish tradition that we have. And so this album was just really, I think it's a love letter to our

How Billy Graham Stood Against Segregation

"Greg laurie. You said to me before we came on the air. that billy. Graham was very very ahead of his with race relations. Talk about that because a lot of people don't know the history i mean. I've tried to write in a couple of my books. william wilberforce An amazing grace and others that when you really believe what the bible says you you cannot be racist but a lot of people didn't live that out but billy graham did at a time when it was very very divisive in difficult in the country. Talk about that. Yeah well he was. The son of the south he was from north carolina raised in charlotte. And of course we know that there was there was a lot of racial division and all of the nation but especially there but as billy begin as crusades people wanted to hold segregated meets not letting black people into the meeting until the white people were. Billy said i will not speak to in a segregated meeting. I want an immigration and our meetings and they refused any literally came down and took down the little ropes and things that were dividing the crowds and he got some people upset with him but he also when he was really at the peak of his popularity had martin. Luther king do an opening prayer at the medicine square garden that was highly controversial. A because king was was not you know. He was not popular with a lot of people in the south of for ability to allow king. That role was ignificant people have. I watched a documentary on. Pbs the other. Day about billy graham. It was just recently done. They got so many things. Wrong historically factually and one of the things they pointed out was sort of like billy missed his opportunity during the civil rights movement and that is so untrue because even he and dr king agreed that the best way that he could help is by using his influence in his crusades is. Dr king was out on the streets and they were doing their peaceful protests and marches and rosa parks. And some of the other others. Billy misery supportive of this but they built. They were more effective in their spheres of influence. And in fact. Billy was a real innovator at that time and i thought that documentary was not accurate as they reported and spent a lot of time reporting that part of his

Get away I think that are very few people who are willing to take chances on and we need more of them. I think that's very true. Because i mean because in in our culture and our basically see that in my workplace or in almost everything that we do see like you know. Young people are very hard to be trusted leadership. That's what older guys thing. i mean. At least some people think so but still like that trust factor. You know what you just said you know people were at trust you okay you. I think you're capable of disease do this now. Dad i think shapes makes a difference of the whole thing that you do it because i think you need to. You need people who trust you and you know because if people cannot trust you and how can the people don't trust you. How can they give you a royal leadership or something like that or response. But then i think the basic of leadership on the basis of every everything that lose arable rod is trust and i must. You don't trust people. I don't think you can actually see them. Expand or explore into the leadership of that the potential that person. Has you know what i'm just like. You know what he was saying.

I think that it's kind of like a mutual thing. That's what holds it together. The relationship stronger and the leadership stronger absolutely cool and also. Let's jump into our next question and this since your marketing fall. And i've got a couple of people who Who i know very personally who lead. Marketing pubs and i know have challenging.

And there's still amazes me while are we to the fastest and the scriptures even though we have read all these one hundred times throughout off all the journey of life or let me see. Nbc the hottest compassionate move. And the this thing. I think we need to have just like jesus at the heart of compassion to adopted these people just like you said you know prayer. You know you're getting from any part of the and for like you know. It's it's faster than faster. Dan hyperloop so whatever. It's gonna use spray it happens. That's how it works. you know. And then you pray and it makes a difference at every prayer makes a difference. I believe that you might not see like the exact outcome in the next couple of hours or days but in everything every every single small or big or whatever you pray makes a huge difference absolutely and i think here's the thing i know sounded very huge oftentimes in sometimes we don't have the compassion and that's the truth of the matter right in it could be as simple as staying gone.

"Humble and they have like a particular mindset. You know you won't be able to. You won't be able to serve. You know. I think the first and most important thing to serve is to be humble. Yeah yeah. I think that's what community living dead and does a lot of people It but seem that where you just sell in like you said. We need so much in the bible. But when you start watching pe- blitz that light it's tv to Because now whatever you read in bird of the gospel. You're starting to see lives. Lives still wars sacra shalit's now nipping in giving. And i think that's what i i had the chance of. Was i get to see so many people do it ahead of me. And i think that's the beauty all together woah. So this is jumping next question and just because we talking about nonprofits as just want to focus on that fine. How can people are. Individuals support nonprofit organizations. I know it sounds case it but stack praying pratt. It's something that a lot of nonprofits Here's what a lot of nonprofits that nonprofits just people who are serving Kosta wait where can we are conditioned. Sometimes we always think. Oh i guess and everything. It's i give done. Yes giving getting health even fuels but there's nothing that bracken your day in day out people walk into communities have rose strongholds people walk into communities Too so where did not welcomed the where the persecuted. There's so much that happens when we walk into these communities and we we try to serve. And that's why i always say stocked with dot with bread. Be dead to be ready to be praying. Were a child that you wanted to towards be ready to be praying for the project that he wanted bills two because every project every child that you going gonna donate towards me. It's just does much as they need an education the ultimate healing the also meet the As the ulsan need that. I touched or the life gets transformed so often we think okay. I give them pain water. I give them a score. Life gets johnson. Yes it gets transformed but a lot of these kids that we get to work with come from the harsh backgrounds they have passed in oftentimes it starts graphs and one thing that i always trust is. Don't worry about where you live. Greg gets your from across the world. It doesn't matter. All you need is a heart compassionate empathy. That's all you need at. Compassion would release the heart of deception and it s the. I've seen the stock with brag and to generosity allot of nonprofits were built because so many people in the past gave it was a huge giving culture in a generation that really builds a lot of nonprofits giving change us and it changes. So yeah you can do to sporting as that is incredible for what you just save the heart of compassion. And i think that's one of the most important because you need to have a real heart of compassion to give to pray for these people. Because you know i mean i've been. I've been different places in india. While while i was living and i've seen like how hard it is. Go to. The release of south india are north india. And how crazy it gets you know when people they don't even have food and they actually you know they they They they try for that. They're they're so hungry. They don't have basic needs.

All and that's how. I think majority of my perspective was shaped to give the left to serve to be around people and just be the hands of feet of defeat of jesus.

I think that to a street of just community people. The we centric conversation that i love about. This is beautiful. You just kind. You know giving receiving could very simply to serve. And i believe you're gonna cost nothing to serve because nothing to do know. Take a glass of water and give to someone in need it. Jake's nothing to do something a An action of humanitary does not take anything takes just takes one step to serve. And that's why. I think the greatest example of Serving jesus because the one who very much created the whole world came down and died the worst of the debts in our the serve. Because amb before he died he served. His disciples own disciples the very people that he created. Washed the feet. I mean the amount of humility that is dead. That's amazing that humility is.

New Documentary Follows San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus Performances In U.S. South

"Shot in the new MTV documentary film Gay Chorus, Deep South that shows the main characters on a bus moving through the intersection of gay and church streets. That's also more or less the theme of the movie, which follows the San Francisco Gay men's chorus on a tour of the Deep South. It's a gypsy like like is is the the artistic artistic director director of of the the chorus, chorus, and and David David Rodriguez Rodriguez is is director director of of the the film. film. Welcome Welcome to to the the program. program. Thank Thank you. you. Thank Thank you. you. Gypsy Gypsy like like I I want want to to start start with with you. you. The The film film begins begins with with your your own own personal personal story story of of growing growing up up Southern Southern Baptist Baptist and and working working in in the the church church until until you you finally finally came came out out as as gay gay in in your mid thirties. How did you feel setting out on this journey? You know, I knew that when I came out it was it was risking everything, but it's wonderful. Looking back. In the ensuing 35 years I've been conducting LGBT Q choruses, and it has been just the most wonderful experience. So I have the joy of hindsight. And I know that people who have not yet had Been able to come out or had found that courage. You know, my message to them is come on out. Go ahead. I've never met one single LGBTQ person who says I wish I had waited longer to come out. And David, You're sort of the unseen force behind this film. What do you to this story had to get involved? You know, it was really shook by the divisiveness that surface from the 2016 elections. And, you know, I was really looking for movements or stories or actions of that could bring hope and that could you know, if not bridge things back together, But at least test this divisiveness and There was an article about the San Francisco Gay men's chorus doing this tour in the South. And and I knew their power in their message from living in San Francisco before I really thought that they were the only ones that really stood a chance. Toe create that bridge. Course. You meet Christian Southerners who accept you and support you. And we know that support for LGBT Q rights is growing nationwide. Something like two thirds of Americans now say they support same sex marriage, for example. But as you also know, there are still those who hold religious beliefs that homosexual relationships are sinful. When you meet people who say that for them, this is a theological issue. This is a matter of faith. How do you talk to them? I don't argue at all. I mean, I lived 35 years of my life as a Southern Baptist. I have all the weapons in my tool kit. I don't use them because I don't think that Scripture should ever be used as weapons. So that's what I would say is study harder. Get Get some some background background on on what what you're you're trying trying to to use use against against our our community. community. When we sang Amazing Grace. It was hard for the singers to sing because you know, it says that saved a wretch like me, and it supposes that we are wretched people. But the whole point is that all kinds of grace can be found inside and outside. If you look for it, David, one of the themes your film touches on is three idea that the South is not one dimensional, but it's more complex than maybe some of the stereotypes about it. But were you worried as you were filming this about stereotyping people in the south or potentially missing some of the nuance? About what The South really is absolutely it was really important toe give the self the voice of deserved into really spend time there. So we spent a few months before the tour itself, meeting people and really learning in listening to what they had to say. And, you know, I like to say there's three courses in this film, You know, there's a San Francisco gay men's chorus. Is Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. And then there's the voices of the South, you know, and they play an equal role in kind of bringing the story together. Tipsy like there's a really interesting conversation in the film, where you talk with one of the pastor's Who's thinking about whether or not to host your group. About the difference between hospitality, Southern hospitality vs Tolerance versus Celebrating people and Without giving too much away. You ultimately tell him you're not really that interested in just sort of reluctant acceptance. You went to be celebrated. Why was that so important? It's for me one of my favorite scenes because it's just so really. It's like the The reality is just right in front of your eyes and he was there and he was trying to decide if If we could sing in his church, and he said, Well, you know, if it smells of activism, then I'm going to get pushed back. And, you know, we tolerate the gays and I just sort of went off. That was my moment where I just had enough. And that's that. I didn't don't need you to tolerate me and I don't need you to accept me. But I need you to celebrate the uniqueness of all of God's creatures. I'll celebrate you. Do you sell it in old boy and his exact What was you know, I just haven't felt the nudge to do that. And so we nudged our way right on out of that church and left them. I wish we could have sung their and I wish we could have done something significant. But we weren't allowed. And David. One

"The time attending church and giving your offerings being being a deacon or an elder or armor bearer some other place position of honor a pastor many pastors. I will not make it into the Kingdom of Heaven because they are just mini flesh. They've never been broken before the throne of God. They're just half converted. During these years the Holy Spirit began to call John Newton deeper he began to create deep deep convictions in his heart until finally John Newton had a second revelation nation of Jesus Christ. He had made the decision that he was going to leave the slave trade and he decided that he was going to be a captain of a non slave cargo ship and he was going to leave the slave trade altogether. He was thirty years of age. Could God was calling him off the seas but he could not understand that God was calling him to leave the ocean because that's all he'd known and so he was stricken with an illness that caused him to collapse and because of that he was never able to sail sale again. It's hard to understand what this illness was because he lived healthily holy until the age of eighty two when he finally passed and met his master and his maker but God chose to remove him from his life on the sea in a very painful manner because because God had great plans for this man to use this man even as God used this wicked man. Dan called Saul of Tarsus for the next fifty years he would find his true love in the word of God now he became a customs agent a surveyor and finally he became a preacher a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ he he wrote hundreds of hymns and poems. We've just played one of those for you. Amazing grace it was his best known he drew large urge congregations when he would preach he held per meetings. He disciple V- men and his him that we have all known amazing. Grace has literally touched millions and millions of lives for generations. God used a slave trader transformed by the blood of Jesus Christ to do this wonderful wonderful work of grace. You also would become a very strong abolitionist. He was utterly ashamed of his past of his sin. He utterly repudiated aided slavery and every wickedness connected with slavery he was married he educated himself in Latin and then Greek in the scriptures and he became a minister of the gospel of Jesus. This man a hard hard man a man who had been abused and beaten a man who had seen it all the depths of wickedness he had participated in in a man who had profited from the trading of human beings need becomes a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The only God can do that in a manner woman's life only God can reach down to the bottom of the barrel and grab you and bring you up hello and use you for his glory but John Newton had to respond and say yes. It took a man who could realize that he was in fact wretched. It took a man who had the courage to face the evil of his heart. It took a man who had suffered. I have not met yet one honest serious Christian who has not endured real suffering in their life. There is something thing about suffering that draws the heart of a man to God. If you have avoided all suffering when you have avoided Jesus Christ Jesus learned obedience through what he suffered the scriptures say that when a man has suffered he is through with his sin. Some of you have lived such a casual casual easy profligate life with a sense of being victim entitled. You've never had to to face the reality of your sin. You've compromised at every hand. You have plagued with the devil. You've played with darkness. Some of you have gone to the Strip clubs. Some of you go easily to the lounge. Were you drink and casually joke and laugh. Hook up with some man or woman deep in sexual immorality deepen pornography. You've never suffered because you've never said no to your sin. Suffering comes as we deal in the coin of sin. John Newton suffered suffered in his life from from early in his life because he dealt in the coin of sin when you deal in the coin of the devil and you say no to it you will suffer great sufferings took a man who was willing to recognize that he could not save himself it took command who was willing to finally face the reality that he was lost and hell bound took. A man was willing to let go of his pride. His arrogance is self sufficiency and that will of that ship in that tremendous storm powerless against the waves washing the deck back at any moment threatening to turn that ship upside down and kill them all facing how fragile his life. If was he recognized. He was not a strong man. It was all an illusion and then he turned to God and Said God be merciful to me a sinner as he left behind his old life and he married he and his wife immersed themselves in the scriptures curse. This is an absolute prerequisite for serving the living God of Heaven many years ago as I was struggling struggling over my shallowness and struggling with what I was to do in ministry and how I was to work for the gospel of Jesus and crying out for the power of God the Voice of God spoke audibly to me he said if you want my power read my word and I began to devour the word of God reading from Genesis to revelation four five six times a year reading reading reading hours and hours than ours every day just reading the word of God crying aloud for understanding begging the Holy Spirit to come and quicken my heart and show me the Gospel Spoil you know what you may think this strange but the Lord has given me such incredible revelations nations of himself and the truth of the Gospel that I continue even today constantly first this thing crying out to God for deeper revelations of his glory and His love and His mercy crying out to God show me the deep deep revelations of scripture and I wanna tell you one of the revelations. That was just given to me. It came unexpectedly. It came from a brother after after a prayer meeting. You said to me look. I've received an incredible revelation. When anybody says is that to me I quickly say to them. What was your revelation and he he took me back to the book of Genesis and he showed me how the descendants of Adam Adam now the descendants of of seth all of them their years were counted. This man lived this many years he begat so and so and then he died but this man said to me canes children their years were not counted and the light went on. I began to cry out. Oh God let my years count for your kingdom. This man jobs who who invented the the MAC computer the apple computer he invented all kinds of things he was a very bright man but before God his years did not count for anything. It's all blown away. He was a a wretched man and you never came to know Jesus Christ he never surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and so his eternity is an eternity of no meaning cast out of the presence of God. I think of others others authors who committed suicide Robin Williams made a pact with the devil the devil gave him every success but finally he turned to alcohol distill the Voice of the devil and finally in desperation desperation killed himself because of the voice of the spirits of darkness in his mind he could have simply surrendered to Jesus Christ and the power of the blood of Jesus would have delivered him aw but now his years don't count your years don't count if you're not a child of God. Your years are simply cast away empty devoid of any meaning. If you want meaning in your life they must be years spent in in Jesus Christ. You must know the Lord and Savior. You must not resort to this fatalism. That says I might as well die. I can't do anything I'm hopeless. Everything is crashing around me. No that's when John Newton cried out. God have mercy on me. Lord have mercy on me a much of what we know today about the slave. If trade comes from John Newton's writings Newton would become an ordained pastor a servant of the Lord a slave to righteousness into the grace of God he met George Whitfield and became a good friend around seventeen sixty. He became a disciple of George Whitfield he later. I was also able to meet John Wesley who was also an abolitionist. John Wesley stood steadfastly lastly against the slave trade and he and John Newton became personal friends and brothers in Christ iced. It was after twenty five years of seeking the Lord God of Heaven in Seventeen Seventy nine at the age of fifty four that Newton wrote the him that would inspire and touch millions of us a decade later in seventeen eighty eight thirty five years after he had retired from the slave trade newton broke his silence on the subject publicly Likud repented and published the book thoughts upon the African slave trade he began with a deep apology and then described what he had witnessed during his years as a slave trader Newton even went on to testify before the British parliament on the immorality and cruelty of the slave slave trade continued to preach until the age of eighty two the last year of his life that year. He said my memory is nearly gone but I remember two things that I was a great sinner and the Christ is great savior. He died in London December twenty. One eighteen o seven nine months after the parliament mint had voted to abolish the slave trade in the British empire. I don't want to even think think about what would have happened had John. Newton failed to respond to the call of God what if he had seen himself as a great center who could not make a difference. What is it that gave him such boldness a former slave trader to become a clergyman preacher and to testify testify before parliament not only as a slave trader but as a former slave him amazing grace has changed countless lives? It said that he impacted acted profoundly every person he came across in his fifty years of being a disciple of Jesus Christ what if John Newton had hardened his heart and refused to surrender to Jesus Christ Romans Fourteen or twelve so then each of us will give an account of himself to God each of us will give account to himself to God. The Hour has come for you my brother my sister to wake up from your slumber because our salvation is very near near now than when we first believed the night is nearly over over the day is almost here so let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently gently as in the daytime not in orgies not in drunkenness not in sexual immorality not in debauchery nor in dissensions Chins and jealousies rather clothe yourself wrap yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ and do not think about how to gratify defy the desires of the sinful nature this command of the also Paul as he's closing the book of Romans in no way today is indicating that you can continue to walk in your sin and expect to be slave exp expect to be saved just just the opposite it's to cast off the power of darkness. It's to cast off unrighteousness. It's to suffer in the name of Jesus and to stand up up for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Yesterday I shared with you a passage of scripture out of Psalm Ninety three. It says who will rise up this psalm ninety four verse sixteen who will rise is up for me against the wicked who will take a stand for me against evildoers it is time now for you and for me.

"To be transformed into a new creature means completely renovated heart and mind and soul it means since to be given over utterly and completely Jesus. These are not just nice words this this is reality the Apostle Paul writing in the book of Romans. He says it like this and do this. Understanding the present time the hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed the night is nearly over over the day is almost here so let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently gently as in the daytime not in orgies and drunkenness not in sexual immorality and debauchery instead of the word debauchery head Paul been writing this today he probably would have included some other things like fantasy sports he probably would have included many of the entertainments that divert us that sidetrack us from the heart of Jesus Christ he says not in dissension and jealousy rather clothe yourselves or literally in the Greek wrap yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature this amazing grace. I don't know how to even talk about it. It's not cheap grace. It's amazing grace. It's grace that teaches us to say no to godliness. It's grace that overwhelms the heart with the love of God and trance forms a man or a woman run into literally the likeness of Jesus and Jesus comes and dwells in that person they no longer lusts after the things of this world and many of you are aw listening today as half converted Christians. You can dance with the world and then you come and try to dance with God breaks my heart. The Song Amazing Grace was written by a man who found himself in the depths of Sindh welcomed. Welcome to Pilgrim's progress. I'm Ray Greenlee pasture of the national per chapel in Woodbridge Virginia this song an amazing grace was written by a slave trader a man who actually profited from the buying and selling of human beings. That's like saying the man or a woman who has an abortionist unnoticed a person who is the president of Planned Parenthood could turn to Jesus Christ and be saved. That's like saying that someone who is constantly walking in in violence assassination could turn and be saved can the Lord Jesus Christ by the blood shed on calvary forgive. The worst of listeners can Jesus Christ transform the life of a man or woman totally given to sin can can he transformed them into his likeness and we would all answer. Oh yes he can but can the Lord Jesus Christ save a Lukewarm Christian or will. He spit them out of his mouth. Amazing Grace was written by a man who acknowledged that he needed the grace of God to be saved he needed that divine influence to move in his heart and in his life to cause him to repent of his sin and to transform form his life was a man who suffered a man who had been a slave a man who had been whipped and flogged and then a man who became a slave trader hello this man is an unlikely candidate to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ but I find sometimes the very worst turned out to be the very best nicky Cruz with David Wilkerson and I could name many others. The God stepped into their life in a miraculous manner so the man who gave me the story of John Newton that I'm sharing with you. Today is one of those men who was caught in the depths of sin in God reached down with magnificent power and turned his heart to Jesus Christ. He's asked that I not give his name but he has been helping me with this broadcast for which I'm very grateful and he shared with me. The story of John Newton born seventeen twenty five died eighteen o seven he was born in England the son of a merchant sailor he was already at sea by the age of eleven between the ages of eleven and nineteen he had already been out to the British isles to Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. You understand life on the seas in the seventeen. Hundreds was an extremely stream really dangerous proposition the age when you were in junior high school he was surrounded rounded by pirates gunfights and every other wicked thing you can imagine he was not watching the wickedness on television he he was watching it played out in real time in real life in front of his eyes and of course immediately immediately was drawn into the depths of all of this wickedness prostitutes violence murder. This was the World John John Newton grew up in he was not a soft man today this beautiful song amazing grace with some by Susan Boyle's one of my favorite vocalist soft and pleading and kind that was not who John Newton was until he became transformed and change but that was not the man he was at the age of Nineteen John Newton was captured by the British Navy and impressed into its service. Now being pressed into service is not something we're familiar with here in America but if you were alive during the Vietnamese war you remember the draft being pressed into service service by Great Britain meant that you were essentially kidnapped put in shackles and carried off to serve in in a ship. It was more like a prison and if you said no you were killed or you were sent to to a prison. That was a death sentence. Can you imagine that American colonists in New York's area were pressed into service by Great Britain in Seventeen fifty seven in New York City several thousand armed British troopers invaded the city and arrested or kidnapped eight hundred military age men gunpoint and forced. I those who were physically fit four hundred of these men to serve in the British navy this continued even after the revolutionary war of seventeen seventy seventy five after we had gained independence from England in the late seventeen hundreds and early eighteen in hundreds some nine thousand United States citizens were arrested by the British military and forced as slaves into their worships. This was one of the factors that led to the war of eighteen twelve so we should not take freedom lightly in America we are beginning and are in fact losing our freedoms and most Americans don't even realize it so we're losing our freedoms in America through government actions through their agencies and in many other ways we are now tracked on on the Internet facebook. We're tracked with our cell phones. Our our cars are tracked their license plate readers constantly out on the road. We have lost our privacy in America video. Cameras are constantly running. When you're in the city we are taxed. Illegally in many respects and money is stolen from the American citizen. Listen healthcare has now shot up dramatically because the leadership of our government knowingly lied to the American people and said your healthcare cost will go down but it has inevitably skyrocketed. If United States government cannot take care of our veterans what makes us think that they can take care of all of America as they have now nationalized healthcare. You are now being censored in social media. If you say certain things you're not allowed to speak about some parts of what you might want to talk about as these freedoms are taken freedoms that Americans have taken for granted and like the freedom to assemble the freedom to have a firearm to protect your family and your the home or for sporting purposes as you lose your freedom of privacy as the press is utterly taken over by corporate we lose and have lost television stations and radio stations that will honestly slee report the news instead. Our newscasters have become extensions of the federal government carrying in a party line. Is it any wonder that NBC CBS and other stations have dropped so dramatically in viewership and listeners if there's any one thing this story of John Newton will tell us it is that freedom is one of the most precious gifts God gives to his people and it is time to awaken our salvation is very close or are damnation is very close so John Newton nineteen years of age forced to serve on the British man of war the the HMS Harwich it is well known that for service in the British navy and the seventeen hundreds would have been an extremely extremely hard existence. It's probably very much like being aboard. A Floating Prison Newton rejected his forced service and he found a way and deserted. He escaped his ship. It was a decision that he would shortly regret he was caught and he was whipped by British naval officer until he was bloodied broken humiliated and shortly after this severe flogging he was exchanged to work aboard a slave ship. He actually volunteered for this probably thinking it would be better than direct navy. Service history does not tell us what his thoughts were regarding this exchange going to a slave ship. It's hard to put together parts of his life. There's nothing that we could research but we know that after transferring to this slave ship he became the personal servant of a slave leave trader and then he was himself forced into total slavery. He was imprisoned while at sea. He was chained with the slaves on board the ship. He was taken to a slave plantation in Sierra Leone Africa. We're for five years. He was treated as a slave. Beaten forced to work held captive. What if it was brutal brutal service in seventeen forty eight the twenty-three-year-old was rescued by a sea captain who had been asked by Newton's father to search for his son in seventeen forty eight on avoid home during a violent silence storm Newton marks this point as his conversion to the Christian faith he was sailing in the North Atlantic of violent storm came upon the ship. It was so rough the waves were sweeping sleeping the deck and a crew member who was standing where Newton had been but moments before was swept away and drowned in the sea after many hours of the crew struggling at the pumps emptying water from the ship expecting to be capsized. Newton and another man tied themselves to the ship's pumps to keep from being washed overboard. Newton begins to cry out Lord. Have mercy upon US Newton then rested briefly uh before returning to the deck to steer for the next eleven hours in these wild seas and during this time at the wheel all he pondered the divine challenge issued Lord Have Mercy upon us and Newton finally began to cry out to Jesus after spending his teens on the ocean and then the years as a Midshipman in the navy and a slave ship and a servant and slave Newton Newton decided that he would go into the slave trade for himself and despite suffering a slave personally despite being whipped took flogged beaten Newton made regular voyages to Africa the West indies and North America dealing in the trading of human beings many of these slaves died in the ship but God was already pulling on Newton's heart but Newton like many of us have converted expecting and asking the Lord Jesus to protect him and guard him well at the same time unmercifully dealing with the children of God. Newton wanted money this action on John Newton's part just vividly displays lease the utter depravity of a man's heart. I can imagine that a man could call himself off a Christian and perform abortions. I suppose that a man could call himself a Christian and and order the attacks on innocent nations causing mayhem and misery and death all for career the glory of Man and money. How could this man who had actually experienced five years of slavery who had been beaten and shackled. How could this man who has had his back doc lashed. How could this man who has slaved in the Hot Sun of Africa. How could this man become a slave ver could a profit from men and women and children losing their lives and losing their families and being torn out of their communities and their culture this terrible choice probably what he was referring to in amazing grace when he said saved a wretch like me. John Newton was the worst kind of Human Rach Rach be easier to tell this story story. If we could alter the facts a little it would make more sense if newton was a slave trader and then repented and and then spent a life in ministry but that's not how it happened. Newton calling himself a Christian profited from the flesh of men after the Lord had begun to reveal himself breaks my heart because some men never never make it out of that wicked place of playing with the world and calling themselves a Christian many of you listening to this broadcast will die. Hell bound because you never ver- were willing to totally surrender your heart and die out to your flesh. You demanded the right to live and act like the world world denying your savior all.

Melissa began discovering that the potential causes of Greece's Kanter may not be very far from so Melissa's. Maybe start by telling us how you decided to move to this community and where we are well right now now. We're just outside of Seamy Valley. I grew up in thousand oaks which is only about five more miles from where we are right. Now I went to Los Angeles for college and when my husband in an I ready to start a family we were looking for a community that was close enough to Los Angeles for work but it was safe. I checked out all the Megan laws to make sure that that was safe. I checked out all the schools check out all crime. I mean I really did quite a bit of research because we wanted to provide the best that we could for our children so you're so you're looking around for homes. Where did you end up locating well. it was a rather miraculous purchase but our first home was on Fallbrook Avenue Avenue in West Hills thirty miles out from Hollywood or we're very close which is why West Hills was so ideal. It's it's the community for people who can't commute too much wjr but also want to be close to work. It's a fairly affluent area calabasas right down the hills where all the celebrities live and it's a nice well to do comfortable city okay so you'll living this new life and and what happens next well when my daughter was four years old she started bruising using and she is a very active kid she's always been a Alpha female since day one name a Grace Grace Allen and so when she started bruising and I took her to the doctor. They said she's just really active little girl. There's no problem here in. I pointed out like she was. She has little bruises on her forehead red and they said well. I'm sure it's fine and they sent us home. A couple of weeks later call back and I said it doesn't feel right. I got brushed off again. Finally leash she had a giant purple scar down her whole side and I called back the doctor and said this. This can't be normal most doctors. I will never have a cancer patient and so I like to think that's why he didn't move quickly three days later. We were finally informed. That grace had every symptom of leukemia. We ended up at Children's Hospital. Los Angeles where on January twentieth we learned that she had an exceptionally rare form incredibly aggressive aggressive form of leukemia call the positive The Philadelphia Chromosome Ehlo and just as a mom and a family. I mean that's just just going to be a terrifying. I mean Con- imagine getting that news. Your whole life stops and everything crashes. We were impatient immediately for week but when I got home I would not mean to but I would just stop in the middle of an intersection forget that I was driving. I was forget where I was going. It's it's it's more than life changing really. It's hard to describe because a lot of these feelings. I have not allowed myself to process a lot of these memories. I've really worked hard hard to keep them away. Just now coming to a place where I'm starting to feel and remember and it's a hard place to go back to to be honest. It wasn't the first time she was diagnosed. That was the worst for me. The worst day of my life was when she relapsed a year and a half out of treatment that that to me was is a thousand times worse than the first one because we immediately knew that her survival rate on a on a clinical trial the first time was seventy percent survival rate which to everyone else sounds really great until the cancer parents. That's one three out of ten children and they don't tell you up front who those three are going to be so. It's not amazing in but you know it's it's there's hope when she relapsed they would not tell us her survival rate and I think it's because they knew we would lose all hope. We knew immediately that she she would need to have a bone marrow transplant. We knew what type of chemotherapy she would have. We knew she would have radiation. I mean we knew we knew what we how bad it was going to be and I think that's why the second time was so much worse than the first time the first time we were pretty naive and how did grace. How did she react react to two oldest like as a kid. You're going through this really you know and especially adults we know more like how is she coping well. It's it's interesting because I think most people assume that childhood cancer. Is You know some throwing up some discomfort in the worst parts you lose. Your hair turns out losing your child losing their hair. The easiest part of the entire journey everything else is a thousand times worse and fortunately when grace was four years old she still really really looked to my husband and I for approval and so she and because she was at the Children's hospital all the time in all the children in her ward are all bald. That was a comfortable place for her by the time she was in second. Grade is she. She knew that other kids had hair she. She knew you that she was different. She knew right after I mean the minute after we told her that she had relapsed she said am I going to die. She knew everything to and and that's tough on a kid and it was tough on my son who was only two and a half when she was diagnosed and if grace had a fever in the middle of the night we had one hour to get her life saving antibiotics so it was an emergency situation to get straight down to the children's hospital and I couldn't wake him up at three in the morning and say goodbye I but sometimes they'd be gone for three to four weeks inpatient and so he he developed a lot of a lot of his own issues and problems and heartache heartache I mean our whole family was affected. My daughter had the worst of it obviously but I don't think people quite realize the trauma brings to the entire family so because graces his cancer was so aggressive did did she need different or more kinds of treatment. She ended up having ten times. The regular dose of chemotherapy than a standard leukemia child would have and so we we spent longtime impatient because it was so devastating on her body auty. She had all kinds of issues she she couldn't eat anymore. She had sores all throughout her mouth. In fact they said it was one of the worst cases of Mucus. Itis they've ever seen it was all the way every part of your mucous. Lining in her body was covered in canker like source so she was addicted to morphine at that time the chemotherapy be gave her neuropathy where if she touched the ground she would be screaming in pain pancreatitis and blood staph infection all at the same time. When did you start noticing patents that you saw the children's cancer ward we live at the hospital more than a typical leukemia me a patient might so we met a lot of the the other families staying there and grace and I were walking down the hall one day and a mom opens the door and said I know no you from the park. I recognize your daughter. We said you know childhood cancers really rare. That's impossible. I'm sorry I don't believe you and when I went home that weekend. I found out that she was right. She was in the background of the pictures from that day and her daughter now had neuroblastoma which is in cancer more rare than my daughters and eleven months after that day she passed away at two years old and then we met the hammers lease and again in treatment and just casual conversation precision. Oh so where are you guys from and she said Seamew Valley and Simi Valley is not far from my home so that was alarming to me but I I kinda voted off. You know it's fairly populated area her daughter. Hazel also had neuroblastoma and excessively. I believe there's only six hundred cases in America. Every year of NEUROBLASTOMA and Hazel was in treatment. Hazel passed away last March after a six or seven year

"To get a third one the film that probably didn't cuss a lot of money And he's very good Dog Man Okay. This is my material Gorani. The Guy Might Amora. I love that guy. I think I've heard about this. It's good it's really good. I can say a lot about it. Okay other than it setting the most sort of decrepit it kind of modernist Howard is outside. Naples place called velocity or Coppola. And it's just like the somebody's buddies idea of you talked to modernise utopia developed in the sixties. I love that sort of pulls Marianne and Wales. Well yeah put me rooms but different but like three four-storey buildings occasionally tola all along the waterfront. A sort of went looking into this after I'd seen the film and found this new time. Mm Sort of long as I am kind of on it. And it's like it was developed in the sixties it was meant to be this sort of pristine. Suburb is meant to be for the well punk. Talk as if it were meant to be for the very wealthy. I know exactly what happened in terms of it. Not kind of attracting people you know whether it's whether weather is sort of shoddily done from asset. I'm not quite sure what the factors were bicyclists. Almost it's not entirely abandoned people their pockets of it but the reports where like the roofs collapsing and the concrete cancer and SR rundown anyway. So this story is about Dogra who live lives news and works in this tiny little sort of shopping arcade right by the sensual and stories a porn shop. And there's Poland with a W and There's there's sort of a like a little gambling salon and all the guys sort of get together in their meals of pasta at lunch time together. And it's just like it's it's shabby existence. It's a very very shabby existence. But the the The main in character is basically Bullied I guess by this tiny tiny little man and his play by Gold Macho Lafontine. The characters called Macho and he's A. He's a single daddy's daughter and he keeps wanting to sort of light trio take her out diving. Wants to take it right. Yeah so it is pretty baronets. Pretty SC skinner's tastes contracting supplement's income by dealing a little bit of chi-china on the side As sort of Man Monster. This brute called Simone Simons Cello I think his name is an and he's He just kind of says I want some more cocaine. He gives them a cocaine. He says. Okay you have to pay me. and His. I know you're my friend. This terrible terrible terrible relationship but becomes more and more like a standard of conduct situation. And it's like it's like the poor runty kid at school and this big guy takes a liking to you but then basically becomes toxic. Bond that you can't get out of conceal you like these film. Sure so we reflect upon my my years is the big bully revealing little tended to I think in this disquisition. It's look it's a really simple film it becomes a kind of a vengeance kind of gamma best and it is. I think pretty impressive. But it's the sort of gritty realism of the thing. That I just I just found so absolutely entrancing. Yeah I saw that it was out and I thought Oh. I've got to keep on that and try and get a chance to go in and seems on places a lot than I think so You they wanna see him just a handful of paper just a couple of your best friends. I WanNa see it at the Nova. You'll love it what you find so cal. I went and saw a group nine pace grip managing the music of I twenty one to thirty pace group. And how does that work very very ambitious work. That really really well. It's a group led by trumpeter Eugene Ball and what he does. It's a while thinking about once a month descript place at the uptown. Jazz cafe in Fitzroy and he lets say deconstructs arrangements and compositions and arrangements of well known and not so well nine Juke Ellington chainsaw Ju- Killington not and well known ones. This will not change like a rocking rhythm or black and Tan fantasy. You'll hear and recognized the tune and the the patterns and things in that but also there are ones that completely re arranged replanted reimagined the Solas rule. Not they're not like I'm playing the same solo as Johnny. Hodges that Phil Noise Roy Alzheimer's or something but they are everything. The jazz should be in the sense that you're looking at existing material you taking your remote moldy and in fashioning it in your own to suit your own skills as an improviser and it's a it's a tremendous group of solid devastatingly. Good playas is and you sit very close like not too much further than we are apart very very close to the band and at times it almost seemed named like there was some kind of game. a competitive game sport going on way one solo was displaying and then say a sex plays is paying a sex and the trumpets throwing in these almost aggressive little stabbing dabbing figures that almost running against the grain of your soul. I almost not not. It's all it's it's not an aggressive atmosphere but it just has Z.. Sense of of being this kind of push poll against the flow of the music at the same time really enhancing the excitement of the music as well if you even if never heard of Duke Ellington and you don't know any Killington a wreck and you can get a lot of enjoyment of seeing this group because it's such a a vibrant written dynamic exciting sound and it's not a nostalgic exercise using loops or anything to sort of not all men with instruments consumer hands doing it The charts and everything. But you can see that. There are times where we embark on something that is not. You know there's been it's it's like hey let's take this figure on take over here. What Tuxedos not an are nothing instead of building jazzmen fair which is out of the charity? Being I'm just a t shirt that doesn't feet and some boots and faded jeans and maybe somebody shirt that you found on the sofa when you got up something different times man. I was very very conspicuous very conspicuous. It's it's the cotton on and Claude. Yes very good good very good the cotton on club but but look Check check out if that sounds interesting to you and this is not anything. The the one thing I found on Youtube is not even close to being representative. It's like on you know. Sometimes people got a Gig Film on the final something and you kind of get to see beauties and it's all it's not worth looking at I'll certainly make ninety five. Find anything worth seeing because it's man it's really good and and and unlike unlike other conscious being way I didn't go for very long but I seem likely this one went for quite a while and it was like over in the snap was two sets and before I knew it it was I was like what have we been here that long it was it was I mean look it starts early. If you're if you're an early person it starts at about forty woody and the music's done before eleven so we had been when elsewhere for dancing and good times. But if you need another not and it's a great thing thing to do this Gig at the uptown jazz cafe so I think it's called a Eugene Bulls Neon Kluge but I. I don't know what that means. oftentimes it does doesn't it. So it's it's neon Eugene Bulls Nanette which is a nine piece band and they're the uptown jazz cafe in pretty much monthly. I think they're on the twentieth of this month. If people in recent checking it out I recommend it as Something that I think is really was going checking Dan. Now there's another thing that I saw the knicks not on the same street but quite different really really different and it was trio bass drums and saxophone. A normally That's not my favorite way or by favorite grouping of musicians but if you're really good musician and and you are the Cottam musician who doesn't run out of ideas than you're not limited by a format that doesn't have a piano or guitar to feed the cords. Keep keep things moving along and keep the frame of the song going which is really important for a lot of people when you hearing musicians taking all these kind of want to know what the song is. That's where the chords. It's really help you when you're listening this bass drums and sax fans the Sambu trio and I only saw one set and a couple of songs of the second it but it was so good and so exciting and and Completely inspiring and I was in fact in spot. The the next radio program do this. Saturday is almost almost I say about half of it is inspired by this one. Choon that they apply that I was listening. You guys I know this but I don't because I think that both playing in different case that was a mistake in chart or something but I just like I And I couldn't work out what it wasn't me Matt and this Guy That I love company Golden. Who is still alive about nineties? All now sax player but he's really title nine for the tunes that he's written and it was sung by. Benny Golson called stablemates. And I thought man he's tunes so beautiful that even when they're being played kind of back to France or different and or as as a solo. You haven't even got any chords. You still get the feel of Benny Golson through that. It's like the bulletproof material and these. These are all great guys. I'm not criticizing the ban. It was wonderful. I thought man this I'm going to have to do a holiday. Maybe half a dozen Benny Golson tunes from different people just to just to give people that treat of how enjoyable these two he these guys material and the fact fact that he still playing you know I mean sixty years old is over jazz musician in A. That's that's like one hundred human years but ninety e ninety man anyway That would gripe musical experience. I had an shows you that no matter what they're doing fitzroy. The matter had a how they've ruined it as a post Roe v and I'm completely qualified to say how much have ruined this still heaps to do if you want to see bands WanNa see WanNa Dance Senegambian. I being jazz band was playing the nightcap not Killington thing was on but I kind of pain one place one time. There's so much going on there so don't let it disappear. United like some of the other great live music zones in Melbourne. Have done it fitzroy disappeared. That'd be put off by all the closed shops all the spray painted and how it feels really like it's on. Its last legs and rundown this STU pices to go student do. Yeah and now I think people also want the new thing the next thing the cool thing and uh-huh and maybe that's not fitzroy anymore aren't k.. You know but I'm one guy.

Poll: About a third of Americans approve of how Trump handled El Paso and Dayton shootings

"Kerry dan whether it's from history or from fiction. If if you're a student of the presidency you probably have a very good sense of how much the american psyche yearns for leadership in times of stress or national tragedy the day we celebrate that is fictional president thomas a with moore played by bill pullman in the movie independence day but in real life presidents have also all too often been called upon to make stirring speech. Is this not to fight. Aliens butts to bring together a country. That's grieving and confused often at some of the worst moments in the country's history. Remember george w bush with the bullhorn after nine eleven franklin delano roosevelt and the day that will live infamy ronald reagan after the challenger disaster faster and barack obama singing amazing grace after the charleston church shooting those are some of the few times in recent decades that partisanship has really really and truly been set almost entirely aside in our latest n._b._c. news wall street journal poll just thirty six percent of americans said they approve of president donald trump's handling of the shootings in el paso in dayton and that's not much better than he did in the wake of the pittsburgh synagogue shooting and and it's only a tiny bit better than his approval rating after hurricane maria hit puerto rico it is better than his approval rating for his handling of charlottesville arlit still only one in five americans said at the time that they approved of how trump handled the unite the right rally and the ensuing violence in charlottesville worlds fill almost exactly two years ago and here's a reminder. This is not really normal. It's not normal in american history for a president to only have a third third of americans are so approving of their reactions in the wake of a huge national events or tragedy sure i mean bush enjoyed sky-high. Hi hi approval ratings after nine eleven and almost eighty four percent of americans supported bill clinton's response to the oklahoma city bombing but also even after after hurricane katrina which is one of the most devastating parts of george w bush's presidency and one that made him particularly polarizing even after that advent still half of americans said they approved of his reaction to the hurricane at the time so trump is unusual in how americans have reacted to his response to national tragedies and when you take those numbers and you combined them with everything else that we know about public views of the president you get a very muddy muddy picture like wild majority disapproves of his handling of things like charlottesville trump is still enjoying some of the highest approval of his presidency when it comes the economy which is great news for the president but you might ask what is the most powerful thing when it comes to the two thousand twenty election what trump means jeans for americans wallets or something more holistic. That is the million dollar question but here's one clue from the data that our pollsters crunch that we noticed this weekend there are a total of nine percent of registered voters in this poll who say they like trump on the economy but they disapprove of overall for all and when those people were asked if they support trump for reelection or would rather vote for a democrat in twenty twenty three quarters said they would prefer for a democrat which is probably not great. If you're the current resident of the white house now for the record we did not aw test the favorability or any other kind of measures of president thomas a whitmore played by bill pullman independence day but i would love of deceased some head to head data with him versus the fictional presidents played by harrison ford and air force one and morgan freeman in deep impact those those would be some interesting cross tabs. That's a lead for us. If you'd like to hear more this free audio briefing you can always download us on your favorite podcast app <music>.

Michelle Obama Talks To Ellen About Celebrating Gay Marriage Legalization

"First of all Michelle Obama tells an amazing story she does she does. She tells a great talk show story. And and she told these stories that were in her book, and she told one story about the day that marriage equality became the law of the land, and they lit up the outside of the White House in rainbow colors, and it was and it was really moving, and it was special and people came out people came out to really celebrate that in front of the White House and Michelle Obama was watching it on TV in the White House. And realized that if she just went outside how she could actually also be there. So you talk about in the book all so the night that gay marriage pass. And this is a great story. Yeah. One of the interesting things, I bring it up to talk about just how a bass different one bay could be in the White House during art ministration and the day that Barack and I went to the funeral where he, you know, famously sang amazing grace we were at that funeral but we flew back in that same day. Marriage equality was passed and. Thing. And we're in the White House. And when you're in the residents there's so much bulletproof glasses. Sometimes you don't hear what's going on outside, and we were having dinner, and we were listening. We knew that there was celebration happening. But we didn't realize that people. Thousands of people were gathering in front of the White House at that time to celebrate. And my staff was calling me everybody was celebrating people were crying. And I thought I want I want to be in that, you know, also we had worked to make sure that the White House was lit up in the LGBT colors. So the lighthouse it was so beautiful beautiful. So we had made that plan. And I was sitting in watching it on TV and realizing I'm living this I said I have to break out of this. I wanna go outside, and I wanna be a part of that celebration. So I had the bright idea I'm going outside. Okay. So I tried to find some partners. So I went to Barack office. And I said we should go outside. He was like they've got too much stuff to do. I can't go out. And he's like, you know, I can't walk outside come on. Let's get out of my office. I go to me said you want go to Sasha. I said you want to come outside with me and see the house, it's colors. Let's celebrate. She's like, no I'm wanting game than women. At went to Molina's room. And I said come on go with me. And she says, okay, I'm down the me and Malia, and we're trying to get out of the White House and realize that it's not that easy to get out of the White House when you're in it, but we were determined. And I said, we're not listening to anyone we are going to walk out that door you and me. So you come out of the residents and there's an elevator and there's usually an agent right there. And when you come out, they whisper, you know, our codenames they're moving and I'm like day, they know we're moving like, let's not take the elevator. Come on you. Go down the stairs. We rushed down the stairs. And you can see the agent thinking. Why are they running? He doesn't quite know what to do. So that he starts following us run faster run faster. We go down the steps, and we go to the front door the north portico door, which faces Pennsylvania Avenue, and I'm just thinking I'm gonna walk out. So we go to the door and the doors locked so now, they're many people behind us the uniform policemen. The usher who's in charge of the house, and they don't know what to do. Right. And they're like a ma'am where are you going? I said I'm going out. I'm going I'm we're going out. We're going outside and they're watching because they're calling in more people. She's trying to get out. She's trying to get. Lead like she's pumped up. She's like we're gonna do this. Mom, you get out with the doors. Locked in the usher says, ma'am. If you walk out there, you will be on camera in front of the nation Nyman ripped up shorts, and you know, a t shirt and no shoes on no makeup. And I thought you have a point. I don't wanna I don't wanna be on that clip looking like this..
