"And now The National Rifle Association convention starts today in Houston About 275 miles from the site of the deadly mass shooting in uvalde Texas Former president Trump is delivering a keynote address today and Texas governor Greg Abbott will send his remarks by video Let's take a deeper look at the NRA with the NBR's Tim Mac author of misfire inside the downfall of the NRA Tim welcome back Thanks so much for having me again So a lot going on today several big name Republican musicians say they won't go Don McLean Larry gatlin but this raises some broad questions about the NRA that you have written about in your book I mean the title of your book is downfall because of huge problems on the inside Power struggles dubious finances and inquiry by the New York attorney general How strong is the NRA really Internally and externally I think without a doubt the NRA is facing the most serious challenges It's faced in its a 150 year history There have been revolts on the board There have been all these public airings of evidence about misconduct and mismanagement tens of millions of dollars spent by top executives at the NRA on things like lavish vacations and private jets and a ridiculous meals and sweetheart deals for insiders with contracts in the millions and millions and millions of dollars And so they're really struggling financially struggling fundraising is down They're spending is down from its peak but they retain a lot of power And they continue to retain a lot of influence among what matters most when it comes to this sort of grassroots politics and that is the ability to mobilize its millions and millions of members in moments like this And in this moment after this terrible shooting Tuesday are we seeing it play out this political currency on the outside the NRA may still have are we seeing lawmakers whose NRA rating really matters to them saying things that are aligned with the NRA Are we seeing it's talking points being repeated by candidates and pundits Political influence draws politicians right And there's no greater example of that than the fact that former president Donald Trump will be addressing in a keynote address today the NRA's annual meeting This is really kind of a comeback party for the NRA And their decision to go ahead with the convention despite the shootings just a few hours away is a sign of the NRA's kind of calcification of its position Can you remind us of its response that's so many people considered this tone deaf response to sandy hook and whether that's relevant this week Well you know after sandy hook Wayne Lapierre disappeared for a period of time And then reemerged to give a speech in which she advocated for more guns in schools And that was something that upset a lot of people I wouldn't be surprised if there were similar proposals made This weekend That school should be hardened I mean this just goes to show that the point we've been talking about which is that the NRA's messaging has become only more certain over time And can you remind us what the message of the NRA the public message of the NRA has been to this shooting and you've all done you What have they said publicly Well they've condemned the shooting and they said that they would be reflective about it But as they've often done in the past they take no responsibility for any part of the gun culture in America or this particular shooting Many animated supporters have suggested that it's not guns that lead to this but instead other things such as social issues like violent video games or other issues that they identify in American society The NRA is practiced in its messaging playbook We spoke to rob pincus from a different gun rights organization the Second Amendment group to AO dot org and he slammed the NRA for feeding this left right culture war as he described it being very unhelpful and actually reducing gun deaths So I guess a question for you is are there new voices important voices among gun rights supporters that may over time change the conversation perhaps reduce the volume and the effectiveness of the NRA Well you know there are quite a number of Second Amendment advocates like rob pincus who don't want the NRA to be like you say in shambles And they are critical of the organization while being supportive of the underlying gun policy issue And what's interesting is that these folks who are demanding additional accountability and transparency in the organization they represent a relatively small percentage but a vocal percentage of the NRA's membership It remains to be seen whether or not folks who are challenging the NRA's leadership will succeed in compelling change inside their organization So I'm just trying to understand how might the conversation change among gun rights supporters if some of these other groups or even people internally at the end at the NRA have more of a voice might be rhetoric Might the policy talking points change evolve Is that happening Might that be happening I don't think that that's in the cards in the short term That what we've seen is rather than a change in tone a change in messaging we've seen like I was saying a calcification in the tone and messaging The NRA is digging in They're getting more used to kind of executing this playbook because of the sad frequency of these types of events These mass shootings So I guess the question is the NRA has had so much influence over the decades It is seated these talking points the rhetoric this point of view that you know if it were to disappear would its influence continue on for a long time The question is is the NRA powerful or is the NRA merely a vehicle for something that exists inside American political culture And I think you know even as we've seen the NRA as an organization struggle the policy on gun legislation it just hasn't changed And so you have to conclude that the NRA is merely a vehicle and that it's real power isn't in its money or organization or its executives But instead of the millions of members that make up its grassroots who continue to make themselves heard among the politicians that make these decisions And so this weekend in Houston then what's important to watch Well Donald Trump is always a wild card even though he's popular among an NRA based He's been someone who's in the past advocated for background checks to the horror of top NRA leadership So be curious to know whether he's here to deliver some red meat to the grassroots or whether he's here with a more sober message in the wake of the shootings As NPR reporter Tim Mac his recent book which is a great read is misfire Inside the downfall of the NRA Tim thank you as always Thanks so much.

"Have this sense of humor inside you percolating and you don't know what to do with it comes a prank phone calls but also comes out in the form of weird al saw and i had a great. My best friend worked at kentucky fried chicken in north hollywood for like five years and he finally quit. And so i- penned the song by old kentucky fried chicken finger lickin. My interest is died and good. Old chefs are making chicken. Fried and i wrote an entire elaborate song. You're twenty two bucks off. Got him into the five page. Song was probably the same length as american pie. Zab quitting the kentucky fried chicken. So that's how big a fan was amazing. And if you ever recorded that i would own it. Yeah obviously i never laid down. Gooda bows or eating biscuits and friday. Yeah come on buddy. Yeah i've probably better than i remember it. I did it in the tenth grade. No it sounds great. It really does some of the decades parodies. I've heard we're absolutely amazing the day. The nasdaq died. They had one when trump claimed that he wasn't there wasn't any collusion. he said the day collusion died. That was a big one. This crecy die. That's another the other point of view. That's the song was looking for it. I think it was eight minutes. Plus i don't know where i was reading but it was Eight hundred eight twenty seven twenty seven on knows. Something's wrong with me. Because i swear i was reading on this sheet and i don't see it but longest the song in length to go number one. Oh sorry yeah so when you were writing it you know. We have a format so now people say i hear it all time because i don't know anything but they go. You can't make that clip longer than ninety seconds or we'll work on. Youtube won't work on facebook or work on. You can't use it on. This format can or people to now. They need these bite size pieces and whatever so writing a song. It's eight minutes long. People had to sort of try to talk you into a three minute and forty one second version. I was I was not that sophisticated. What i did was that. The only thing that i did was from the very beginning my first album was called tapestry and it had End i love you. So and castles in the air on it and tapestry was an environmental song and it had songs about poverty in america were of wealth and also it's stuff What i did was i said. Look i want to make sure that. I am not bothered by anybody in making these albums. So this album. We're gonna make this album exactly the way i wanna make it and what you all do with. It is up to you. And that's one thing i did. I didn't have a committee or a manager or producer. Somebody if they worked with me they knew there was gonna be my way and the same thing happened with american pie we did. It was great because really artistic endeavor and that was the day those were the days when the audience was receptive to that kind of thing you know whether it was good vibrations or macarthur park or whatever they were used to all this imagery and stuff. That didn't necessarily make perfect sense. Like the old pop songs might and so there was also a movement of course records and in movies to have people who were w- writing the songs directing the songs making label deals you know and they were making special. Production deals for movies. It was breaking down the old studio system really so i was in charge of my records but after that once the thing was handed over to united artists i kept playing and then one day. They cut the american pie song down to three minutes. Single with like two verses and chorus crazy went to number one in two weeks now and is a funny story because the people bought the album came out at the same time and they they heard the eight minute version and they would call the station and say that's not. The song is a tom so they'd have to take the album into the booth and play it in the on the top ten. Play the eight and a half minute version. Because he didn't have the technology to put it on one side of a record in those days and then they finally played out another single that had port one in poor two different size. You're talking about tapestry. And i thought isn't that a carole king record. Yeah that was a word that why mine came out before hers. But he's a total different thing. Her pa- carole king is know a brilliant commercial songwriter. I'm i'm an inventor of some kind. I really don't. I don't know what i'm doing i really don't i seventy five years old interact for fifty years Sold millions of records. And i have no idea how to do anything everytime writing something new and it's all like no-man's-land to me you know i don't i don't go back and say well i'm going to write a utah. Write a don mclean song. Or i'm gonna write a song it's like this. I don't do that. I just go out there. And freewheeling gina it's funny when you're talking about the length of the song. I thought you know growing up because you're obviously. I mean. Starting nights one of my favorites as well but american pie it. It knows no generation. It's all of our song. And i thought the only other song that i can think that has that like odyssey that leg that we know every word that you have to hear the whole song. I wanted to figure out how much later it was made after your seven years later. Eight minutes. twenty eight seconds paradise by the dashboard. light. I'm sure he may.

Not osama third incarnation lie for district a being district chairman. I become associated with master master five years at done. Five years association president. In in my time. I felt that i'd done all those anything. I haven't done central console route. So that is a great danger of becoming like one of the old fogies in the muppets. Balkany criticised everybody else. You have to make esa other people come along. That was a prime reason. Why i pose for five years mostly work commitments at part and then it was actually my wife who persuaded. I taught her during a number of years. Not that was a good idea. But i did. And she persuaded me after four or five years that she get back into. She's thinks with a great way of combating potential alzheimer's dynamic. She's probably right. But that was what brought me biking while i was in just transpired that was opposed to come up the up very often in ireland for the central council method patents on not before. So i'll do that. and then. They persuaded me to third incarnation ringing master. On the way that worked for the bitter purpose because Behind tim to.

I think that the strip very strict regulations Boost in the site of another stall out for the time being so the be one or two other tars Best at limerick without sufficient space Or four again for a short period of time but as far as with practices and stuff goes just marking time really until when the covid restrictions lifted what see is the challenges to bell ringing in island aren't generally i can tell about northern ireland in particular the differences aren't that great north are the challenges remained the same as ready said but tradition and distances but what i had identified Through the committed project on indeed through a couple of other things involved over the years become aware of when i came back during is that there's noneya we losing ringers. Just happening everywhere. But we're losing experienced teachers. And i has district master traveling around the tars notice and saw that there are people who were doing their best. The never deconstructed her to teach anybody and had the task if you like thrust upon them so prior to code. I had three art organized. Course which was going to be started to teach people had selected who were in that situation. Some of like good teachers were more thinking more in terms of future insurance also abilities but there was at least six who had thrust upon them and they were all different locations. So they're all to come together. This training session in jumbo bo. Which was another tar. I've run ready for many years lesson. That was all setup and ready to go booked. Pay tw courses set. That was going to be april this year. So that will have to be halted so looking to the future. I would hope that that could happen again. The problem was Statement on my part because to standardize the teaching was then gonna have to travel ryan. These people as they are thing goes and supervise high. They're teaching Follow ups the big part of the scores. I'm not getting younger but looking to the future. That's the essential thing because we got ourselves in this situation would ask Three remembers members on lesser extent. Committed were utilized influx of people wanting to learn. You haven't bought the teachers anymore. As role that little dirtball s. If he had a magic wand change one thing about the bell ringing world what would it be and artem. Yes in ireland. Yes a magic long. Doesn't make them aware of burying as on the purpose of the schools. That's therefore that menu. Just as i did cedary in airports just talking to people have a situation where people were more aware that boundary exists for never ceases to amaze me then of course. Maybe i'm getting old. Dining through the years. The archers for instance is to have a big bellary elon and younger people in particular are not with the archers anymore. But that would have been a way of being ballard into people's minds. I remember knives. Relatively young people did at least through that new. You mean what they do in the archers cut you shared of course but of course that's again that's an age thing the people doing out magic wand. I changed the world in such a way that people stop reacing looking for instant gratification and really take life the.

We divided them up into groups and they were taught in each loose locations with me. Those are the three of them every week really. I'm involved in teaching people in these one as well.

Could give me a view of the belt has an island. okay valerie. Ireland's and the irish associated Changing about encompasses the whole island. The ringing is predominantly anglican in church of ireland which is as you probably know a separate ready for the church of england anglican convenient. But they're also. I think it's four roman catholic bell stars which happened to be in the south. Then the bell ringers food. Three hundred sixty. Four hundred bell ringers of berries has gone up recently was ringing remembers. But there's three hundred thirteen. Four hundred boundaries are limited associations divided into three districts the northern district the southern district in the eastern district the northern district not intentionally but effectively is northern ireland. Where there'd be rebel tour on the goal would probably be in the northern up with league of course locations because of the currency uneven just different laws on safeguarding at the moment effectively.

In the sense that you do have to try and organize things way that the keeping lots of fit spending at the same time which is weak but late ringing surprise marks muslim stuff like that are conducting headquartered in the to our similarities. But yes it is. How did you first get into bringing this. My thumb is tradition battering in ireland. Because we're so spread wide moose. Bell ringers are recruited through their families. To be fair and younger ringers. In particular in that way back in the day it was somewhat easier. The story is i was going to church on november one year. Nineteen sixty six and it was dark evening and the bells ringing the lights were on them. The church as a shoji. The picture of nicholas is a detached carbonnel's he woke up in blue anyway. I stopped my. I was called many times before because the lights girl. I co to the bowing of may stood. Watch for a bit of the to do that. That would be interesting now. Having said all that. I knew that i would never ever walk the stairs doing doubts. That was just never going to hop but what actually happened. I was a sunday morning. It was added the following aging or the evening after about within. Today's anyway my phone phone At the time of ten the our house went. I was doing. It was remain on. Then girlfriend overpowering her. Ask me but i like to be about air. So i was. I didn't say a word. She you what age was was actually yesterday. Three her her boyfriend also in her. He'd asked his offer some schoolteacher. Was anybody else class with the interested. So i go os this other phone so i didn't say anything and so. She asked for my mom she had a conversation with my mom and my sister both acquire. I'm in the car. I didn't wanna get in the car. So she came away from the. You don't want to be on the far. You're going to be a bellary without instruction that other always tying in bell ringing. You don't want you wanna give. I had never any choice. I'm still going to be about her but the funny bit is only five or six years ago. I got talking to that. Same girls' rings a out and she assumed that i would stumped in the phone call because i zoomed. We didn't say but actually the whole time. I was just thinking heightened thing know who did thank thinking about this so you gave her absolute divine intervention. Either but my whole life has changed as a result of that but it was just cool shiver going back and i thought didn't they knew don't be so that's the story. S what stands out as the biggest bell ringing project you've been involved with well lit. I would say the biggest winning project would be. When i was asked to train a time. Seventeen new older enters as regarding a new bell tower. Being built installed in commute is church. I for two to see. Was the district master. Just returned to the after having a five year break and the biggest difficulty was. We don't have too many qualified teachers and oversee pathet about got seventeen people. Teach the same time a task. So i have to coordinate with one or two others who are good teachers and organize an overview on standardized for the purposes of art the the standard of teaching that they were getting vote myself in as well so four or five nights late ringing bells.

they have to be they can't you know shoulder shoulders are you know what it is we're weeks in their dresses yeah so they don't fly up you know and and fascinate orders and you know it's funny how they have like all one color it's very sometimes reminds me of very nineteen sixties yeah so I just loved all the outfits Kate has some of the heart the on it and it looks great he died did it with and it was also a kiss to address Diana war yes and speaking of Diana both of her sisters were there all my gosh in the in the picture of the family there the two right behind the couple in our chi those are her two sisters that's great I've actually never seen them at any offense so a couple people weren't there notably the queen right and of course Megan Markle's dad Thomas and of course he has something to say about it but the queen yes it is busy you operate yeah said that she wasn't there but she can't make everything and also it was the date was changed yeah so she has a very busy schedule she's ninety three years old her husband Philip is ninety seven we know Phyllis tired he is tired so they were some I guess rumor has it that they were at Sandringham which is one of their which is one of their Scottish estates and that they had things to do in Scotland they had different activities and things going on they change the date not at the last minute but it wasn't far enough in advance for her to cancel these very important plans these are plans I'm sure that involve people waiting for her for like they know a year in advance that she's you know yeah things are really important and so she couldn't be there yeah and maybe it would have maybe been nice to see you queen what what's your schedule like yeah can we reschedule this because everyone's going to accommodate you know yeah we'll work it out but there's twenty five people at the ceremony all our guests were gonna change the third time yeah exactly yeah but you know I wonder in the future just if if this baby you know he's you did with the history in looking back it's like oh look the queen mother isn't in my christening picture but they probably are they have a separate pictures that we don't see yeah there sure holding him it's not like he is going to happen photographic memory is there for me yeah all my god wants he'll also miss Charlotte take believe okay and there's been a lot of other things you know yeah like you said it they're busy the old they just want you know they got other things going on so you know he actually had turned in ninety eight Philip did last month it says retired from public duty any doesn't attend many events but apparently still drives a car oh my gosh let's get him guys things can happen can we make sure that Philip doesn't drive anymore yeah last year you got that accent or maybe those this year that was that's right you missed all ninety eight the check in as I sites and you know you don't want to take their freedoms away because I can I can understand I think that I would might feel that we tall it's a problem and everyone is rife sure right how relatable is that for sure and for some people it's relatable just this Thomas Moore Markel Megan's dad wire why do media outlets still talk to him now it's the Daily Mail of course well that's what maybe that's why is that yeah so there you the contacting him what is he said he is going on and on about well I would love to be asked to go he says I was an altar boy at twelve and a member of the queen's church at fourteen arches my new grand sense of course I would have enjoyed being there for the blessing wishing him and his parents happiness and health and then that's basically his statement all right well at least we didn't have to hear from it her stepsister or we could step sister she's like the worst Hey oh boy hopefully has nothing to say about that yeah there were two pictures released of the whole family and so that's really fun to see her mom was there course prince Charles and Camilla over there and William and Kate are the god parents so they were in the picture as well then Diana sisters and there's also a black and white picture of the three of them all says all close together yeah and that's where you really see a close up of that baby get to see his face even more all my gosh river cut his American he's also get mixed race so you're what you just wonder how those babies come out all my gosh right I'm always curious I mean no matter what you just want to see the combo of the parents yeah you know here is the most exciting one of that tire family all yeah he's go you see him and you're like wow okay cool what what did they make you know you just and now we see him as he can does he can you tell feels read here is this you can't really like it's mean if you it kind of looks like he has red hair yeah a little pet the elf what a privilege to see that baby grow up you know who's missing from the picture not just the queen but the the cousins the little kids that's true I think you know they just want to deal with it you think they sit home with the nanny it's like you kind of like it's just hard to manage little kids they're in there the way it's a little probably you know getting dirty or whatever just to have a calm day were the kids learn about maybe the kids are taking naps yeah the the it's funny this is your nap time how convenient oh my gosh yeah it's just maybe it was too long the day for them they're like why don't we just leave the kids at home I love that it's like normal family decisions sort S. and they don't have to follow all these rules that we think you know I don't need to be there and they probably just wanted some adult time even though I know it's for baby but twenty five people there your friends are there your families there kids you see over there yeah and also this was just this picture so who knows who knows that really right what a fun day for all of them also what was the other thing all I wanted to tell you about a

A lot of people love that game. To don. Have you played that that seems like something you would play with Pok Mon, folks? No, no. I don't even know what it is. Yeah. I don't know. I just I I saw the guy who created Riverdale. He's created everything a gray. He is married to Robbie Rogers soccer guy, his name r why candidate Greg Berlanti. That is anyway. Yeah, he's created everything. Everything on the CW has been Mr. Berlanti. Yeah. I think it's Greg Berlanti, Greg Berlanti. He's created river days like the executive producer of Riverdale. The all American basically any show Laurie bargaining watches. Greg Berlanti has been responsible for but he tweeted here a heating Instagram. Nick Robinson, who is in the movie love Simon which Greg Berlanti executive produced. Knick's over there playing Catan with the family onto dumb for this game. 'cause I've heard it's like risk. I never could play risk as a kid was way. It's too. That's too smarty pants for me. Give me some connect for. Why don't you play the Dallas game that's been in your mailbox for like four months? Oh, yeah. I need to play. I know. Yeah. The whole box. I know I need to clear out.

There was a couple of Dallas games even had a Dallas video game. Like a rudimentary. Very. Yeah. Did they had they had puzzles? This is all during the who shot JR thing. I have most. I now have the majority of all that memorabilia, but. Yeah. Someone gave me the game. Nothing beats a board game or cards. Oh, no. It led to play pinochle and hand and foot crazy eight hand and foot. Fifty eight. Dawn they they've played that while sucking Lally. It'll only men were allowed to play in the women would darn socks. Oh, you guys would love foot. I'm gonna teach you what is it? Okay. So basically, you can play singles or you can play with teams, and what you're trying to do is you're trying to create books of cards. So some of them are pure, which are read which are like say you start. A you have three sevens. In your hand that starts a book, you need seven total cards and each book. So he gets seven seven's than you that that's five hundred points. Then if you have a wildcard, then those are black books, and then those are worth three hundred points. But what's great about it is if you play with partners, you work off the same side? So you make these books. Oh, it's so much fun. My hand folks friends. I love it when she's trying to.
'The Flash' star Grant Gustin hits back at body shamers saying he looks too thin in leaked photos
"But. I saw this yesterday right before I left for the cat video festival and. I, I'm a big fan of grant Guston who is the flash on WBZ's the flash, oh yeah and before that he was in glee, that's really when I started liking him well I guess even if you're not a fan of comic book shows, or superhero. Shows or you don't even know who grant Guston is I think you'll find the story fascinating because I. Guess I was unaware. Of this until, I read his long. Instagram, post. I guess there is a photo leaked Of new costume that he will be wearing as the. Flash, in the new season season five of this show and I think this is another, example kind of like the toxic fan base of, Star Wars going after rose the actress that played Alexa I can't remember her name Tommy head and I feel, I feel. Very bad because Kelly Kelli Kelli TRAN Horrible things into, her horrible death threats into the director of last Jedi Ryan Johnson anyway toxic fan base this is another example of toxic fan base and it's it's gone too. Far it's just ridiculous so this photo leaked of grant in this costume a prototype I should say of this, new costume and fans freaked. Out non only they will they didn't, like the costume but then they were also body shaming grant Guston Horribly. Body shaming him and. The opposite of what you usually here I mean some you know when I I. Would imagine that when you hear body shaming you think. Of fat shaming you think oh we'll body shaming. All they're talking about a. Person being overweight well it happens. On the other side too and let me read you this statement this. Post from grant he. Writes so here's the thing about this BS, photo leak it's a cool suit that's a terrible photo that I was unaware was being taken. Much less being posted some things need work and they will be worked on we'll get there as. Far as the, body shaming that's what pisses me off not even just for my sake I've had twenty plus years, of kids and, adults telling near. My parents I was too thin I've had, my own journey of accepting it. But there's a. Double standard where it seems to be okay to talk about. A dude's body I do my best to stay in shape and add as much. Sizes I can throughout our, seasons I'm naturally thin and my appetite is greatly Affected by stress. Stress is, something, that ebbs, and flows, for me throughout flash season thus gaining weight is, a challenge for me I, didn't cast, a, slim actor as the. Flash I went to an audition for. A, role I never dreamed I'd actually book, but here I am fi seasons later on happy with my. Body and, who I am and other kids who are built. Like me and thinner. Than me should be able to feel the same way not only that but they. Should be able to feel like they could be a. Superhero on TV or film or whatever it may. Be some day I love. The suit that has been designed. For me and I think whenever one season in its entirety you will. Love it two things. Have been adjusted since at leak was shot, and more things will continue to be adjusted until it feels right and then he went to. Post a video and he looks totally kind of beaten and he just barely says anything other than. F- to the, person that leaked that photo Any kind of ended the. Video but he just if you look at. His face I don't know if it's still up. Let me click on his little head here. No it's just the it's just, the statement but he just looked worn down cool and if your brain that fast all, the time wouldn't you have a high metabolism and be thin I was thinking the same thing people not everyone is gonna look, like Thor yes the flash I mean he's a thing of the track stars in your college and your. High school I think of. My friend David Lang who was literally like our thinnest, by finished friend because he was a track star, you too great body. I I don't I look and I was really not schooled but I think midway through the run of our show I. Made I made a comment about not not that stereotypical eat a bagel but I, made a comment similar to that and I got a really thoughtful Email from a woman Actually. No, I think. He was, from a gentleman who really kinda schooled me in a really nice way about. How as a thin person, he's like you don't like body shaming in the other direction Jason and I I feel that. Way as an overly. Skinny, person and. I thought wow I never because because when, you look at it through your own perspective I would do anything, I'm meat from for me I win anything to be thinner but, I never thought of what it would feel, like to be overly thin and have people go oh Eat a cranberry eat a bagel or, something How awful that must be And to hear grant. I really liked this guy I've always been a fan of his and that kind of broke my heart, when I read that yesterday but also kind of a good for him We're here is because, there are a lot of people for sure Nissim, being EMMY Rossum she is the of shameless. Which by the way. If you're a fan should be watching. Showcase it's fantastic and season, eight is now available, on net flicks? She posted on, her Instagram and I was, like what is this, and she, says wanna know what I way, and then it's like all right I got gotta, click on this see what's going on and. In her Instagram stories here's a picture. Of herself at, the gym it's a selfie in the mirror there and she says the next thing in, the in the story, is a picture of her, with, these, words, on, top of it, three, best friends, since kindergarten Dr kindness empathy Jewish and proud daughter one happy marriage and she kind. Of goes on for all of, the things that she is accomplished. Being directing three episodes of television finished her screenplay an animal rescuer and she says this great message because you. Are much more, than a number? And kind of the same thing she just saying you know what all of these things add up Who, who I am? Not the size of my thighs Really good message yeah for the same reason that grant Same thing for all the kids out there and I feel this way being an openly gay guy in, media, for all the kids. Out there that feel like oh. Look at my body I could never be the flash I. Can't, even pretend to. Be the flash or for EMI I I love that I love it because you never. Know who you're affecting in a positive and negative way you never know who's hearing your. Who seeing your light and I. And I love it both? Examples, of
