You're working long hours. Everybody wears six different hats and it was a lot of fun but also hard work running around like chickens with their heads. Cut off to to get the program out the door each day. I just remember one interview. I did with somebody in washington. Dc for a particular story and we were doing a lot of phone interviews. At that time we would interview people by telephone. We don't do that very much anymore. Because the sound quality is better online. But i was working from a home studio and i wanted to do was turn off call waiting so that in the middle of the interview. We were not interrupted by an incoming call so i forget what the code is. It's something you dial. Something like star sixty nine or whatever and then dial the phone number in that. Make sure the call waiting's turned off and you're not going to be interrupted. Well the problem is. I entered the wrong code and not long after the interview. Guess contacted me. And said hey. I've been getting calls from people asking for you now.

Wj i to do this story. I remember being absolutely terrified about the responsibility. Going to this community and asking people to relive literally the worst day of their lives while they stared into massive microphone. It felt incredibly daunting but there were a couple of specific individuals. I wanted to talk to first the pastor of the church who lost his daughter that day. The worship leader who had been paralyzed in the shooting and the church member who went after the shooter and stopped him as he ran from the church. But i wasn't sure if i would be able to talk to any of them if they would be available or if they would even be willing to talk to me so i remember praying desperately that god would bring me to just the right people. The people who stories and perspectives. He wanted me to share with listeners. Sunday morning. I went to the church and attended a morning service and i saw god very clearly answer that prayer because the pastor in his morning announcements told everyone that he would be in meetings the rest of the day so unavailable for me to interview. The worship. pastor was out sick that morning. So i knew i would be able to talk to him. But as we filed out of the church after the service that last person on my list the man who stopped the shooter he was standing at the sanctuary door literally greeting people as they filed out and i had to grin because god had made it so abundantly clear who. We wanted me to talk to that day. By the end of the weekend i was able to talk with multiple survivors. Who trusted me to tell their stories. Which is always humbling. No matter what topic. I'm reporting on and sometimes it's a really daunting responsibility. But so grateful. Knowing that god will guide me through that and provide people and stories and interviews. And i'm so grateful for world that enables me to go out and tell those people stories. It's time.
