A highlight from Discovering The Value Of Life Embracing My Worth With Collin Hughes
"And that's it for this video. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you. Bowed out of the relationship. A few months later, I got an email from her. You know, I'm sorry. So I thought, well, let's try it again. That happened a couple different times. And then I met my wife now, 17 years, my sweet Jean Marie. And got a message from this daughter again. And of course my wife, she's a social worker. And she, relationships are so important to her. And she says, well, you're going to contact her back, aren't you? No, I'm not going through that again. But honey, the relationship, the relationship. There's not going to be a relationship that won't develop. And she just, well, she wouldn't let it go. And so finally I says, I'm going to do this, but just to show you that I know what I'm talking about. Well, it lasted longer this time, but it did go away. And so then in 2017, I, as a pilot based in Houston, Texas, with the airline that I flew from, and I flew for it. I live in Las Vegas. So every week I'd have to commute down, you know, catch a ride out of Vegas airport down to Houston to go to work. And when I was home on time off, one day my wife asked me, she says, what are you going to do if she contacts you again? I says, I can't go through that. There's just no way. And this time my wife says, told me she understood it. I go, okay. Next morning, I'm saying my morning prayers. And I swear to you, it's just like you're hearing my voice right now. I heard these words, pray for your children. They want nothing to do with me. I don't have children. I said, pray for your children. And I was going back and forth. I was always arguing with God about, no, I'm not going to do this. And finally I says, okay, I'll do it. I don't remember what I said or anything, but I did it. And my first flight on my trip I was leaving for was later in the day. So I commute out the same day instead of having to go the day before and spend the night in a hotel in Houston. Got to work. I went to Detroit for the night, overnight in Detroit, worked the flight back into Houston on day two of a four -day trip. And I'm walking up the jet bridge with passengers de -planning, and my phone rings. It's a number I didn't, that I did not recognize. And it was, it was my daughter. And she at this time was divorced from, from her husband. They had my granddaughter that I had not seen since she was like probably around three. And a grandson that I had never met. She was living in, up in the Northeast, New Hampshire, I think it was, with my granddaughter and the children's father was in Florida with my grandson. The father had been killed in an automobile accident. My grandson was in the car with him and was lucky to get out alive. I mean, that thing was just crushed like a can. It just, it's hard to understand how anybody could have lived through it. But my grandson was in a coma at the hospital. They didn't know if he was going to pull out. His front was split wide open, internal organs exposed, several broken bones. And my daughters said her sisters couldn't come down. They were in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the hospital. Her sisters couldn't come down. Her mother couldn't come down. And she said she just needed to have some support there. And I says, I'm on the next flight. And I didn't try to jump seat or, you know, do non rev down there. I bought a seat just to make sure. And so ever since then, the relationship's been growing and growing and been a lot, you know, been pretty good. My grandson's doing great now, by the way. So there is some good in this. But to give you an idea of what my granddaughter was like. When I was down there in Florida, you know, I'd take her out, you know, to lunch or something and, you know, to give my daughter some time off where she can just kind of, you know, go back to the Ronald McDonald house and relax a little bit or maybe catch a nap there in the hospital room or whatever. Just let her just not have to worry about everything. And every time that my granddaughter, Alina, opened her mouth, I expected to hear, Grandpa, where have you been all these years? Grandpa, why haven't you called us? Or Grandpa, this... Not once did this child say anything like that. Not once. All she did is just accept me and love me. And it's one of the few times in my life that I truly experienced complete unconditional love. And that's the kind of person that my granddaughter was. My wife and I took her to Hawaii when she was 12 years old and she just had a blast. There's only one thing she asked for on this entire trip and that is if we could take her to a store so she could buy her own swimsuit. And she said she had her own money. She showed us the money for it. We go to the store and we're looking around. She finds what she wants and she puts it back. I says, well, well, honey, why are you putting it back? Oh, it's too expensive, Grandpa. She says, well, do you have enough money to buy it? She says, yeah. She says, but I won't be able to, I won't be able to pay for my food while I'm here. Mother only gave her so much money and that had to be for food. I says, honey, you're not paying for anything else on this trip. The only thing you're paying for will be this. Grandma and I, we're paying for everything. Really? Yeah. You know, she didn't expect anything. But when we got to the cashier, she's pulling out her money. You know what old Grandpa's doing right behind her back, don't you? I'm pulling out that credit card. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But she didn't expect it. When we, we found an attraction, Swim with the Dolphins. And she, we asked her if she wanted to do that. She says, oh, Grandpa, that just costs too much money. I says, well, it's okay. Yeah, it costs a lot, but it's okay. She says, oh, Grandpa, I couldn't let you do that. That's way too much money. So I just says, okay, if it were free, would you want to do it? Well, yeah, huh? I says, okay, no more. It's okay. We got it covered. And we've got this picture of her that sits on my Facebook page at the banner now behind my profile picture of her, you know, standing in the water right next to this dolphin. And she has this huge smile on her face. And when I posted that, you know, on Facebook, most of the people that I'm connected with on there are old rodeo buddies. And one of them, his name's Donny Gay, eight -time World's Champion bull rider. Donny made a comment on that picture when I first posted it, and he's never met my family ever. And he, he just says, I'd know that smile anywhere. And I just, for some reason, I just felt that felt so good. Well, Paulin, listen, I'm listening to you, and it's tough. I mean, these are memories that you have. And, you know, anyone watching and listening right now, I'm sure they're feeling the same, you know, I guess, sentiments I have right now for you and for your, how you, you really are experiencing this as you speak about it. And I know you do this quite a bit, which is always reminding you. And in a way, it's a good thing, gives you closer to the memory and to her. But also, it is not easy to get out. But I think the more you speak about it, it's always a good thing. But I want to, you know, first of all, thank you for giving the background on the story. And again, for our audiences, things happen when we're young, and it is part of all we all make mistakes when you're younger because you don't know much. You just know the obvious. You want to have fun. And I think that's what culturally we've been conditioned to do. You want to have fun. And the fun could be in many ways, shape and form. And then you have these things that happen and then life keeps going. And you said it yourself again. You know, you wanted to to be that guy that just, you know, flying around doing things and having a good time. You know, you did that. So so there's I mean, you know, you can at the time that's all sounded right. And for the most part today, people are going through this at an early age. They all I mean, listen, I see them all the time. I was young, too, and things, you know, you do your thing, right? You know, that's that's what it is. Everybody's going through some sort of level. And these things do happen. But I think the biggest part about your, I guess, story right now is that you had a disconnect with your own children for a minute and you finally was able to connect. And this bond now didn't happen with your child specifically, although it was, but it was not as strong, but it can almost connected with your grandchild. And that's that's really your granddaughter became that that link, that bridge, you know, with that long waited for relationship and child love. Right. So she became your real your child, really. I mean, you're you're I mean, really think about it. I mean, just listening to you, it's almost like compensating for years of loss with your daughters. And yes, you probably could not make up with with her mom as much. But with her, you had hopes that this will be it. And I think that that's what I'm gathering, at least from this, because I can see that that bond is going to be much stronger than any concrete out there. And, you know, you just wanted her to be to be happy. You wanted to be part of her life and you wanted to to do more because, again, to your point, you didn't do that, you know, because they were not there. And it's not because it was your fault. You signed a document that, you know, once you get into the court system and you get those things, you know, you pretty much kind of like, you know, off a lot of things that you can do. Obviously, that your daughter's got older. So there's a little bit more of flexibility there, but it's never the same. So you're you're you change all that a little bit with your granddaughter, right? Part of you know, with these three tragic events, my life, you know what? One thing that I've learned from them is no matter how dark things get to be. There can still something good come come of it.

FEMA Has an Equity Problem
"Before you tell me about your visit with donny. Helped me understand the background. Here what is us role after disasters like hurricanes. Well it's pretty straightforward. Fema is supposed to help people with their immediate needs and safe. Stable shelter. is the big one. So people who own homes can apply for money to repair damage or finding a place to live if the house was completely destroyed. And there's also money to help cover the cost of rent or a hotel room and then sometimes fema brings in temporary trailers that you might have heard about an emergency housing. And what do we know about who ends up getting that money right. So that's the question. I've been asking for years now. Actually so all the way back in two thousand seventeen. I noticed that poor people seem to be struggling to get adequate help from fema and it was anecdotal and mostly noticed in houston after hurricane harvey back then there were some studies coming out that suggested that fema assistance was disproportionately benefiting whiter wealthier people. And i imagine you ask fema about that. And what did they say. Yeah i did and basically. They said that their programs were designed to be fair. Everyone can apply for help under the same criteria so it's a level playing field then fast forward a couple of years and i heard from a source of mine that fema had been doing some internal analyses about this exact topic. So you know a reporter. I asked to see them and initially fema denied that. Npr appealed months went by but eventually they gave these records to me and the records showed low income. Disaster survivors are less likely to receive some types of housing assistance from fema. When they do receive money they often receive

You know i was always mba of the comedians. That could come out as them sell. And get you on wolf word or lois bromfield that well big carlos it. I mean everybody in show business.

It's it's pure seinfeld atlano. It's their way to relate to everyday life in a funny way. There was nothing wrong. In fact.

Asylum Seekers Are Allowed Into U.S. For Their Day In Immigration Court
"Now, the odds for asylum seekers are long. But the courts are so slow that he may live in the United States for years awaiting his court date. So the Biden administration's new policy just changed. Manfredo is life. The story is different for other people behind him, including some people in the camp. He just left. NPR's John Burnett was at that camp this week and is on the line. John what you find Steve Well, the most infamous refugee camp on the US Mexico border is almost empty. A month ago, it was teeming with more than 600 migrants. And today there are only a few dozen people left. Now it's looking like a deserted shanty town. With all these colorful camping tents flapping in the Gulf breeze and no one's inside them. City workers are hauling out great piles of garbage and personal belongings. U. S immigration agents began processing the folks there first, in part because so much international intention was focused on this wretched camp with its snakes, mosquitoes and mud. Ah, so that explains why Manfredo was so quickly able to cross the border. But who are the people who have not been able to cross? Well, they're mostly Central American migrants have already lost their asylum cases. One of them is Donny Lopez Rossa, a 28 year old Honduran. Had been to the can't many times over the past two years, and I'd met with him before, and boy did he have a rough time? The first time I met him, he was lying in his tent recovering from a vicious mugging. His face was a swollen mass of bruises. Gangsters had tried to extort him. Barasa is still there because the U. S immigration judge didn't believe his story that he fled Honduras to escape the thugs there. And the corrupt police in his country. And then now he's lost his appeal so that ASA says the mood there is bittersweet. He says there's sadness because he and others were left behind. But there's happiness because so many have been able to leave and finally get into the US. Why is he remaining in that awful camp, though? Well process says he believes God will still deliver him across the border. If the Biden administration will have mercy on people like him who suffered in that camp for so long, and the camp has been there for nearly two years, and you know, close relationships have been forged in adversity. Some people fell in love, including PAGASA. Come in, come in, he says. I was with my girlfriend for more than a year. She and her daughter crossed the border last Friday. She didn't want to go without me. She cried and cried and cried, but I had to convince her that she had to

Concerns over food insecurity grow amid COVID-19 pandemic
"Has created an economic disaster for millions of families, one that the nation's safety that hasn't been ableto handle. Millions of people have been thrown out of work with no new jobs to be had, and many of the measures designed to help them. Things like supplemental unemployment benefits and eviction moratoriums have run their course. They engaged in a lot of necessary coping strategies and trade off folks. They're making difficult trade off between painter of food and medical care, food and utilities. Food and transportation and helping Jessica Hager is director of health and Nutrition for Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and the country's second biggest charity, she says Before the pandemic about 35 million Americans or 1/9 of the population lived in households that were food insecure without the resources to get adequate food. Since mid March. It's gotten much worse family's air having to decide whether to pay the rent or buy food. Food banks are crowded. We have projected right now that there'll be 54 Million people are one in six could be sued and secured this beer in 2020. We've also projected that food and security Rachel increase in every single county in the United States in 2020, so this could be a 21 and three adults and one and two Children could experience it in Korea this time again due to that. Economic impact that has been in effect around the pandemic. No individuals whose job individuals relying on their savings to make their way through experts in hunger, No, that family's suffering from food insecurity have a variety of goto strategies to try to stretch scarce food dollars. Hagar says. 55% of food insecure families have used at least three of the strategies are things such as receiving help from friends? Purchasing an expensive unhealthy food, which we, of course know in the long term has an impact on health, telling their personal property where, if possible, which isn't for all, of course, but growing food in their own garden. Anticipate. Families have continue to engage and they trade off in coping strategies while also trying to manage the difficult circumstances of managing the disease and being out of social distance increased normally have even in normal times. Many families go in and out of hunger, depending on economic circumstances. But today a lot of people are gig workers or freelancers whose income is far from consistent. What is certainly common or not unusual for there to be seasonal food insecurity or one coming in and out of the security and that against you Point gig economy. It could be our essential workers who are farmers, and much of their income is based on seasonal rotation of crops. We also know of course, that folks began as they're making tree off. Sometimes their assets are coming in, and they're able to live off those for quite some time. But a situation may come or a health crisis cooker that's unexpected in that put someone in a food insecure state, though it does change depending on a variety of circumstances, and also note that we have a lot of built in inequalities within our structures institution in this country. And so though helpful, maybe doing Well and being able to make ends meet for many years. There may be the circumstances that change the last idiotic cetera. That family made their individual, maybe food insecure for a period of time until they're able to re secure that financial foundation for their life Being food, insecure, even for just a little while, is a major risk factor for poor health. A recent study in the sage journals shows that independent of all other factors, food insecurity, Khun drastically increase the chances of an early death. We found that the drift of the people in America who are secure Eventually have a high chance of dying from any cause of that heart disease. And that is a striking finding good extended dance of death for insecure people After 10 Years of increases, 50%. That's Dr John Dee, scooped on Donny, professor of Public Health at New Mexico State University co author of the study, not a sophisticated multiple models. Adjusting for different types of actors. And yet no matter how much you account for just being food, insecure from a few years after a long duration, profound impact on someone's help. On the train, the heart, the liver, the kidney, and so any cause of death is more prominent in for insecure people essentially being food, insecure challenges your body medical autism, and then you're depending on your supply in the body, putting supplies. And those declining over time and eventually the challenger system so heavily but a liver stops function and people underground Club Gen. Donny says the increase in heart disease death as a result of food insecurity is especially striking 75% greater over 10 years than in people who are not food in secure. The reasons are fairly clear. Cheaper foods are generally less heart healthy. And there are few things more chronically stressful than not knowing where your next meal is coming from when an individual is going through this difficult and very stressful, my nontoxic, stressful experience that if they're making a stray off, perhaps again purchasing, inexpensive and healthy food That can lead to perhaps previously controlled diet related diseases becoming uncontrolled, uncontrolled diseases. Such a society that can lead to complications like kidney disease, identities and nerve damage. Often food insecurity and poor health combined to create a vicious cycle with no way out. If someone enters a cycle of food, insecure or their household is experiencing an unexpected and extensive medical crisis are often forced to engage in the financial coping strategies.

Trader Joe's Fall Products to (Pumpkin) Spice Up Your Shopping List
"Welcome to another of our short shopping list episodes. I'm Tara Miller director of words and phrases and clauses, and I'm Matt Sloan, the marketing product guy now just about everyone in every type of business has had to make adjustments during this pandemic but we're proud the trader Joe's has maintained a commitment to developing new products to giving you that sense of discovery on every visit. So, let the discoveries begin. All right hold on I'm just organizing. I don't even know where to start there. So many new products. What's purple on the outside creamy white on the inside and makes a Great Ship Donny Osmond socks no. Almost Masaaki sweet potatoes. They're not the normal sweet potato. They're not the bright orange sweet potato, their paler in color and flavor. Wise. I'm going to say that they're kind of like a roasted chestnut in obnoxious kind of way. But in a nice way like insists nutty sweetness these are great chips but wait met we sell. Masaaki. Potatoes in our protection when we can get them. These are delicious sweet potatoes people love them. They're great for you. You meant the sweet potatoes themselves. You mean in chip form that these should be considered some kind of health. Okay. These are potato chips, full disclosure, right So they come with all the caveats that regular chips do sweet potatoes themselves really good for you. I will stand by them. Those are probably in the store. Already I think those are coming in at the beginning of September or something like that, and they are limited because there's a limited number of these potatoes that can be made into chips. People associate trader Joe's with Pumpkins stuff in the fall. How about Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slim's I mean this is a candy. Yes Pretzel but it's a pretzel that is swimming in really nice white chocolate with crushed pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds and I think we're trying to figure out another way to Pumpkin on their one more time. These are just great. So if you like the peppermint. Pretzel Slim's. I think you'd be a fan of these to these are really tasty sweet with just a little salty. So you just WANNA keep coming back for more. Another thing. That is sweet. But I think not too sweet are the pumpkin spice batons that are coming in and those are kind of a very close relative to the cocoa batons that we have every day and the vanilla batons we have the villa batons. Do, and we've had coffee batons we lemon for awhile it's a wafer cookie with pumpkin spice filling inside I mean it's kind of simple and straightforward, but it's a you know kind of thing you could have with a cup of coffee or even some ice cream though should be in stores by the time. This podcast lands and folks should be able to grab those right away. They're just delicious when we're thinking about. What else to include as a Pumpkin version we often look to really popular products Brioche we sell an inordinate amount of that classic agee, Sweet french-style Bread. We have a Pumpkin Brioche coming I'm excited for this. I think French toast will never be the same. That was also super limited by the right like it's it's in and we'll have it for a little while, but it's not something that's going to be around for. You know months and months and months. That's our hope for infant works or it'll be a great. Saint. Patrick's Day breakfast and by that time it'll be green. So perfect. One of the things that was a big sort of revelation to me this year even though it's not something we invented it's not something we were the first to think of is the spicy pumpkin curry simmer sauce that's coming in. It's kind of inspired more by a Thai curry than Indian curry but it has all of those really classic curry flavors. With the addition of actual Pumpkin and it's like thick and it's creamy and it's got a really good kick to it. I'M GONNA. Say This is good. Right out of the jar actually with Yeah Yeah I can't wait to hear about how people put this to use. We are working on a recipe right now internally for a Vegetarian Spicy Pumpkin Curry potpie that we're hoping to have on our website and in the fearless flyer in late. September. Also, I think slated to be featured in an upcoming flyer many spicy Pumkin Samosas the. Sabih in the frozen section, this is not a Pumpkin pie situation at all. This is an appetizer wonderful bridge creamy spiced pumpkin filling. This does sort of flavor. Wise. Go more toward the Indian style curry Classic Somoza Spices are used this. These are delicious. They're really good with a number of different kinds of sauces has been a we've tried them with a Chutney but also with our sweet chili sauce, which takes its inspiration from Thai cuisine and the hot and sweet pepper Jelly these tastes really good dipped in any of those. I'm still focused and obsessed with Pumpkin Pumpkin Nada. Now, this is a Pumpkin pie situation. So think of a small Mexican inspired hand pie with delicious spiced kind of a classic spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice filling. So. Good. So not like spicy spice but like sweet savory spice, the spices more like our spiced apple cider or a traditional Pumpkin pie spice sat up I mean this would be great for breakfast I. Think because I like to have pie for breakfast you know pine a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day, and this is like a little pie. So it's like I'm just having a little Lil Pie wilpon. That's your new nickname. Okay.
How Man United Can Get the Most From Donny van de Beek
"Let's Talk Dhani fondue beak and. We're we're we're joined by Janjalani Hallam from our colleagues at Fox Sports in Holland. IOS Let's get right into it von Bake. A year ago he was part of the golden trio actually probably more than a trill for X. Now he goes to. Manchester United. For a fee that seems incredibly reasonable. WHAT FORTY MILLION Yet true. Night guys the first of all the price in the beginning I expanded to have fifty, five million euros that is. but then the corona came and I ex and FUN Obagi already a deal with rail it was in January. the deal was fixed. Everybody was happy fun to make especially because well, course Real Madrid maybe to get away with man united one of the biggest even world. they only have to do to medical but of course, it's always a the last thing that needs to be fixed the medical, but then corona game and then Real Madrid didn't WanNa do anymore because the actor refresh they had to sell players. So, to the fun to make a scene. On the baked team they were really really. Really. This pointed then didn't went on because they thought maybe a year earlier we should have made deal with another club because. Well, he came at the irs when he was sin but there are during the year. So many gloves informed Do you WANNA play with us like Aroma arsenal-spurs buddies? Munich and they always say, no. I'm not done at IOC yet. I WANNA say I WANNA learn here I know what I have. So in January, he was like all I mean seven happen I'm going through Madrid? I'm really happiest guy, and then he went on and lost weight. Well, there was a different There was a different ballgame. Put it that way. Now when he was a young plus the two thousand fourteen. European championship where they got to the final the Dutch and he was the outstanding player in the sooner. But he played in a different role to the one we sitting plan X. recently in everybody's asking Kenny plan the same team as finance, but he can play Deepa Connie. He can actually it's funny because when from Kabura. Who came through the first squad and he said his deposition is the number six. Position is good because he has a lot of power Most of the time used to play with the the the most kilometers behind his name off in the match he can penetrate the book he's he's really intelligent. He thinks he can play between the line. He said he's my ideal number six offer lushest show in a left I. He thinks himself he can be six. You can be an eight and he can be a ten but then maybe as. Can Be the best position I. Think he's GonNa play the number ten position and I also think he can play with Bruno Fernandes and also with football because he's the guy who's go into the books oldest time it's never ending. He's smart can score goals he has a lot of. the only thing is. I was wondering because. I thought the interview with Man United, C C with with from the Baker's British interview. He just can't play on midfield with with. With Bruno and Fernandes. This isn't that to attack. I don't think so I don't think it's do. Almost, everybody knows what's what's expected I think sold he had good conversation with him Wednesday I think last week on Wednesday he knew everything about him he knew his specialty and he also he's also convinced that he can play with the so I think he's going to be the number then man united besides daddy place with thirty forty four or on back But I think at United best position or is she come to be the number ten?

"Tallahassee welcome back to the podcasts what numbers this? Number seven. I think it might have been six. It's crazy. I can't even remember it used to be when we did a new one I would go back and listen to the old one. To See what we talked about before make sure no repeat myself. I just can't do it anymore. I can't listen to six. An, our audio. Preparation, so I gotta go off my My Memories. Yeah. It's been a lot. It's been a lot I WanNa say I feel very fortunate. I feel honored really that you are willing to have this conversation because I know you recently. Lost Friends Chadwick Bozeman, who is you know the world is experiencing that loss but I know you're experiencing it in a different way. Thank you for taking the time to do this even despite that. Now it's okay I mean we had committed before and. It's an experience to. Meet somebody. And you know I don't want to overstate Khushab was like a really private dude. And I think whenever you have people who are up at a certain level certain currency. That people try to deal in in you know overstating their proximity. So you know this wasn't a cow who I talk to every day or anything. But we did know each other we did it on. You know pretty much in the same circle. You know this guy met. Jesus. Nineteen Ninety seven ninety eight when. The students in the fine arts building decided to. Take, the administration building at how to prevent. Called it the absorbing of the fine arts college into the broader Liberal Arts School Indus- turn basically terrifies into a program as opposed to independent, which was crazy because. So much of what you know how a calling card is turning out autism Donny Hathaway To puffy to Tony Morrison just this long history. So it seemed crazy anyway him you another close friend of mine basically led the takeover and. are coveted for the hilltop for. You know some like at the beginning of my career I've probably been working for David. been mentioned several times. You know in other caucuses we we've done a couple of years at definitely maybe a year two years something like that. But anyway else coming in for the student newspaper and I say all that to say to watch him. On this arc. To see him you know student plays at Howard. He was always such a serious serious office. An intense and probably like the dude, I would least. Be Likely to pick to become. A major Hollywood leading man not because he lacked the talent. But he was so serious I'm. Dead dead dead serious about his art in and you know he really really didn't play and didn't have time. For Shenanigans. So just watches I mean he's one of those. Really really rare case, there's so much in the world it makes people feel like. Taking shortcuts in messing around and And Chad. Rare case that did it on principle and. Basically you know. Hard work you know. I know when people pass folks alight. They say this I never did any wrong or you know, etc. That's not what I'm saying. But I I was privileged to watch his as office. By went back and watched the onstage interview you did with him at the Apollo. And one of one of the things you said there was you sort of started off by saying because it was about Black Panther obviously, and and you said something like I didn't know that I needed this movie until I watched it you know and Kind of wonder how much of that? Connected with him being in that role or just. Yeah. No I mean. I would that was part of it. You know what I mean chat always had like this kind of you know otherworldly About himself. When he got past it's not like I was like, oh, he clearly can't this. You know what I mean is I said it was unexpected. You would be on this rise like this. I. Guess I'm more doubting. The system Hollywood. I think like an by point or somewhere around I point started writing a comic book. So it was like crazy. You know that you know he would be Erin I'll be right in the book and then I just so proud of that. So You know and even at that moment. He agreed to do conversation at the I mean you're talking about you on a billion dollar film. Again I knew. That they were. Promoting film it you know how exhausting? Because I think this was after they had gone on this global tour promote I knew how exhausting that was. After they had done grueling Toyota, he would just sit there and you have to remember what we know now was he was diagnosed about it. Yeah. Yeah. So he's been diagnosed with. You know what I mean and he sits up on stage in. But we had a pre call? His Russia with very very assistant. You know about that. You know we cheat the time limited data and I'm like, okay I'm. Trait. Up there with that, we got on the stage he has so much to say. And you can tell if you look at the interview, he just has so much to say and I think there was some point isn't Chin who has a black me the mask could come the and wants to get. Out At enchanted signs it. You know he was very conscious about what they're meant. And what what their moment met and it is. I just spe is it is hard to be sitting here talking to you about this in the past tense. Yeah. He has so many lighters just enviable qualities that relatively brief moment you know he really was king you couldn't have picked a better person to to carry it.
